Intel's Desktop Roadmap

Updated Intel will cut the prices of its desktop Pentium 4 line on 27 January 2002 by up to 18 per cent, we hear. By then, Intel's 0.13 micron P4 die-shrink, codenamed Northwood, will have been less than a month on the market, but that's Intel and pricing for you.

The biggest cut is being made to the 1.6GHz P4, which will fall to $133 on 27 January. The 1.3GHz, 1.4GHz and 1.5GHz P4s are already at $133, as per October's price cuts.

CPU New Price Old Price Cut
Pentium 4 (0.13 micron Northwood)
2.2GHz $560 $610 8%
2.0GHz $364 $420 13%
Pentium 4 (0.18 micron Willamette)
2.0GHz $340 $401 15%
1.9GHz $240 $273 12%
1.8GHz $193 $225 14%
1.7GHz $163 $193 15.5%
1.6GHz $133 $163 18%

Intel will release a 2.4GHz version in Q2 and a 2.5GHz version in Q3 - all of them with a 400MHz frontside bus.

During Q2, Intel will also debut the 533MHz FSB variant, dubbed Northwood B, at 2.53GHz. The following quarter, a faster, 400MHz FSB version - Northwood A - will ship at over 2.53GHz (2.6GHz?)

Intel will continue to roll out Celerons through 2002, with the 1.8GHz 0.18 micron P4-based part appearing in Q3, as we reported earlier this week. It will be accompanied by a 1.5GHz 0.13 micron Tualatin Pentium III version. Expect a 1.9GHz or 2GHz P4-based Celeron in Q4.

Come Q2 and Intel will release Tehama-E, the replacement for Tulloch. It will also offer (as we've reported before) Brookdale-G, which will add integrated graphics to the i845-D, the DDR200/266 version of the i845. Intel will also offer Brookdale-GL, which is essentially the same part but lacks Brookdale-G's support for an external AGP bus.
