Intel has announced six new 775-pin Pentium 4 processors, to accompany it latest chipsets, also announced today.

The CPU line-up comprises 2.8, 3.0, 3.2, 3.4 and 3.6GHz Pentium 4s and a 3.4GHz Pentium 4 Extreme Edition. The first five of these will ship with model numbers 520, 530, 540, 550 and 560, respectively.

Given Intel's intention to dub the P4EE the 7xx series, the 3.4GHz part has not been given a model number, so the chip maker clearly wants to retain the model numbering for 90nm parts - the 3.4GHz P4EE is fabbed at 130nm.

The 700 series P4EE - ie. a 90nm part - will not appear until Q4 2004, Intel confirmed today.

All six CPUs support an 800MHz frontside bus and HyperThreading. The five 90nm 5xx series chips sport 1MB of L2. The P4EE has only 512KB of L2, but a further 2MB of L3 cache on the die.

It costs $999 per processor in batches of 1000. The 2.8, 3.0, 3.2, 3.4 and 3.6GHz P4s cost $178, $218, $278, $417 and $637, respectively. Intel didn't address the availability of the CPUs directly, it simply said systems and motherboards based upon them "are currently shipping in volume". ®
