Intel’s Tejas/Pentium V processor will sample internally at Intel in January 2004 and will take between four to six months to get to market. The Pentium V is likely to be clocked between 5GHz to 7GHz, have 2MB plus of level two cache, be built on a 90 nanometer process, and have a stackable design.
The processor sits in the LGA 775 pin socket and above it is a very thin heatsink. Another permeable heatsink can sit between this and another microprocessor module, giving a stackable design. Microsoft is ready to launch a version of Windows called Elements with 64-bit extensions where people can buy a 32-bit module, and then add in the 64-bit processor.
