Intel today released its Pentium 4 Extreme Edition - the exceptionally expensive gamer-oriented version of the chip giant's desktop processor - as we reported last week.

As anticipated, the chip will cost $925 a throw.

The chip is clocked to 3.2GHz and features 2MB of on-die L3 cache alongside its 512KB L2 cache. Like other P4s, it supports HyperThreading, a frontside bus with an effective bit rate of 800MHz and is fabbed at 130nm. The P4EE is compatible with the existing i865 and i875 chipset families, said Intel.

Intel also is shipping boxed Intel Pentium 4 processor Extreme Edition 3.20 GHz to Intel authorized distributors for system integrators worldwide.

Sold to system manufacturers in 10000-unit quantities, the P4EE costs $925 a pop. Intel will also be selling the part boxed via its distribution channel to resellers, retailers and end users. ®
