Intel has confirmed it will release a 2GHz Pentium 4 next quarter.

Company officials, speaking at their annual shareholders meeting, hinted that the schedule for the part's release had been accelerated, according to EBN.

Sounds like spin to us, since the 2GHz P4 has been down on Intel's roadmap for introduction early Q3 since the beginning of the year. That said, Intel's few official comments on the part to date have hinted at a Q4 release. The chip maker is still scheduled to offer a 2GHz part in Q4: the 0.13 micron die-shrink P4, codenamed Northwood.

Information leaked from the company earlier this month suggests the 0.18 micron 2GHz P4 will cost $562 when it's introduced. ®
