Intel demonstrates 2GHz Pentium 4

Also, earlier in the week, Intel announced the availability of the 1.7GHz Pentium 4 processor at the show.

The 2GHz Pentium 4 processor is slated to ship during the third quarter of 2001, said Louis Burns, vice president and general manager of Intel's desktop platforms group.

While the demonstration of the 2GHz Pentium 4 underscores a growing gap in performance between Intel and AMD processors, Intel is not just competing in terms of performance alone.

Intel officials recently announced deep price reductions that are set to take effect April 29. The 1.5GHz Pentium 4, which carried a list price of $US637 in March, will see its price cut to $US256. The 1.4GHz and 1.3GHz Pentium 4s, which are currently priced at $US375 and $US268 respectively, will both fall to $US193. The 1.7GHz Pentium 4 is priced at $US352 in bulk quantities. By comparison, the 1.33GHz Athlon was priced at $US350 in March.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
