Intel plans to introduce its first dual processor core, "Smithfield," in the
first quarter of 2005, as part of the company’s "Lyndon" desktop platform. The
desktop processor will include a version of the company’s mobile SpeedStep
technology for power management. The 2005 Lyndon platform will include the
single-core chips with 2MB of cache, including the enhanced SpeedStep and 64-bit
capabilities. Commercial chips designed for office PCs will include the iAMT
management technology, with the dual-core chips carving out another performance
tier.

In 2006, the "Bridge Creek/Averill" desktop PCs will ship, scheduled to
include 65nm dual-core processors, a second-generation iAMT technology and both
the Vanderpool virtualization and LaGrande security technologies. In 2006, the
Xeon will gain the ability for "I/O Packet Acceleration" and advanced controller
technology, both designed to speed up network and I/O processing. Future "T"
technology enhancements that Intel is "investigating" include 3-D and
3-D-animated graphics, data mining, network processing, speech recognition and
text-to-speech.
