Intel Pentium 4 Becoming Obsolete

With Intel putting more focus on dual-core processors and 64-bit processing capabilities, some are wondering what's going to come of the existing Pentium 4 processor line.

Because Intel is moving in a faster direction processor-wise, one can anticipate the price of Pentium 4s to practically bottom out (until they become legacy…). The emergence of multiple core processing also means an end to the Pentium 4's run in the desktop environment.

An article in VNUNet.com took a further look at the future of Intel's Pentium 4 line.

Multicore products will eventually permeate the entire Intel range, from notebook CPUs to the Itanium server chip - although current brands such as the Pentium 4 will remain single core.

The Pentium 4 will remain available for stable enterprise platforms for the next couple of years, moving to 65nm fabrication in 2006 (?Cedar Mill?) when it will be used as the basis for the ?Presler? multi-chip package. The Celeron brand will continue its role of being the final low-cost resting place for older processors as they fall out of the mainstream.

But Intel said the Pentium 4 brand will lose its role as the mainstream desktop processor, making way for the new dual core Pentium D and Pentium Extreme Edition products, previously known by the ?Smithfield? code name.
