533Mhz FSB Prescott Spotted


As we know, Intel will be launching their 90nm Prescott
processors in Q1 next year and the initial clock speeds will range from 2.8Ghz
to 3.4Ghz on 800Mhz FSB. Strangely, a 533Mhz FSB Prescott processor clocked at
2.66Ghz has been spotted which is no where in the Intel roadmap previously. An
earlier report at
TheInquirer
revealed that this processor is meant for the value segment and is packed with
only 256KB of L2 cache to be available in Q2 of next year. Interestingly, Intel
has decided to let 533Mhz FSB to stay on longer and it is unclear if the 533Mhz
FSB Prescotts are HT ready.
