Looking to beat its rivals to the punch, Intel is currently
ramping up its new 90-nm process technology, with product shipments due by
year’s end. Intel, which claims its own process is on schedule, initially plans
to ship a 90-nm version of its Pentium 4 microprocessor, code-named Prescott.
This 32-bit processor is expected to be one of the fastest ramping products in
the company’s history.

"The 90-nm technology is up and running," Fravel said. "We have parts coming out
of the fab right now. We’re going to have revenue shipments this quarter," he
said in an interview with Silicon Strategies. Intel has big plans with Prescott,
which is aimed for both the consumer and business markets, he said. "We are
going to ship extraordinary large quantities of the part next year," he said.
"Thermal is an engineering challenge," Fravel said in the addressing the
reports. "We are pretty confident that we have a solution to address the thermal
issues."
