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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
