    Here's what it REALLY is:

    DESKTOP CHIPS:
    7xx: P4 Extreme Edition
    5xx: P4
    3xx: Celeron

    MOBILE CHIPS:
    7xx: Pentium M
    5xx: Mobile P4, P4-M (they ARE two different things - the Mobile P4 is essentially what AMD calls a DTR chip, and the P4-M is essentially what AMD calls a Mobile chip)
    3xx: Mobile Celeron (based on the P4), Celeron M

    danidentity: Yes there will be a 3.2 all the way to 3.8. Somewhere it was mentioned that the 4.0F was removed from the roadmap, but i would not be surprised if it reappears.

    As of late, I have found Intel's naming system very confusing. Seems it is just getting worse Reply

    Thanks Kris, that makes a little more sense. Is there just going to be a 3.6F? Or will there be 3.4F's, 3.2F's, etc.? Reply

    #3, I think Intel uses these numbers in two different contexts, one for the mobile line and the other for the desktops. So in the desktop segment 7xx,5xx,3xx stand for P4F,P4E,CeleronD and in the mobile segment they stand for PM(Dothan),P4-M,CeleronM. At least that's what I've gathered. Reply

    I believe there are two different versions of the E0 stepping. The 550 "J" processors are slightly different than the 3.6 "F" processors since the MHz labeled CPUs support EM64T.

    Your article is a little confusing.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the 3.6F GHz will be the first E0 stepping chip, and it will ship Q3'04?

    Which will be the first 1066MHz FSB chip supported by the 925XE chipset? The 3.73? And why is the 3.73 an Extreme Edition? I was under the impression Intel was moving to 3.73 after 3.6GHz, but it wasn't going to be an Extreme Edition.

    "Think these new ones can be faster than a 200 dollar AMD chip? "

    LOL , prolly not

    I wish they would just go back to the old way, with ghz and a letter code, like 3.2E, etc.

    Kind of concerned that even the new 925XE might have limited use or no use on Smithfield. Only listing Smithfield as working on Lakeport spells doom to me for the 915/925X we have now.

    More AMD opportunities?

    mmm

    Still dont know why the 3.73(720) uses the banias/dothan series number.

    I guess it's becoming much more key whether anyone can GET these cpu's short of going through the Dell's of the world.

    The 3.73 looks to be large customer only - so while it's news, it's news that is tempered by a 'you get to look but not touch' issue :)

    Oh well

    Er.. damn, there's a few new code names that I hadn't heard before. Cranford (8MB L3 = 400 million transistors, *minimum*!), Copper River, and "Mukilteo"? All the good names have apparently been taken. Heh. I'm still waiting for Puyallup to show up. Reply
