Updated With the 2GHz Pentium 4 nicely launched, Intel's attention will now turn to its successor, the 0.13 micron die-shrink codenamed Northwood, due to ship in November at 2GHz and 2.2GHz.

In the meantime, further price cuts are expected on 28 October:

·2.0GHz P4 - $401, -29%
·1.9GHz P4 - $274, -27%
·1.8GHz P4 - $225, -12%
·1.7GHz P4 - $193
·1.6GHz P4 - $163
·1.5GHz P4 - $133
·1.4GHz P4 - $133
·1.3GHz P4 - $133

·1.2GHz PIII - $241, -10%
·1.13GHz PIII - $193, -14%
·1.10GHz PIII - $225, -7%

The 2.2GHz 0.13 micron P4 is expected to debut at $615, the 2GHz version at $562.

And we've brought the 0.13 micron Tualatin-based 1.2GHz Celeron forward to October 2001, based on Intel's project sales for the part (zero in September, 400,000 the following month).

The roadmap:

September 2001

·Chipset: i845 'Brookdale' - PC133 support

October 2001

·1.2GHz Celeron - 0.13 micron Tualatin, 128KB L2, 100MHz FSB

November 2001

·2.0, 2.2GHz Pentium 4 - 0.13 micron Northwood, 512KB L2, 400MHz FSB

Q1 2002

·1.3GHz Celeron - 0.13 micron Tualatin, 128KB L2, 100MHz FSB
·Chipset: i845D - PC1600 DDR support

Q2 2002

·2.4GHz Pentium 4 - 0.13 micron Northwood, 512KB L2, 400MHz FSB
·1.4GHz Celeron - 0.13 micron Tualatin

Q3 2002

·Chipset: Tulloch - single and dual-channel PC1066 RDRAM support
·Chipset: Brookdale G - PC133 and PC2100 DDR support

Later...
·3.5GHz Penitum 4 - 0.13 micron Northwood, 512KB L2, 400MHz FSB
