3.6GHz Pentium 4 to be introduced in June?

SST unveils 8Mbit Serial Peripheral Interface flash

Adtec introduces lead-free DDR2 SDRAM and 40x CompactFlash



3.6GHz Pentium 4 to be introduced in June?

According to various sources, Intel is to introduce Grantsdale and Alderwood chipsets on the 4th week of June. At least that´s what OEM companies told Japanese PC Watch. So, it turns out that 775-pin 90nm P4 and P4 Extreme Edition are to be introduced simultaneously.

In June Intel (according to existing roadmaps) is to unveil 2.8-3.6GHz P4 with 520 to 560 ratings as well as LGA775 3.2 and 3.4 GHz P4 EE. Besides, we should also see 2.8GHz P4 for a new socket, but it will support only 533MHz FSB and won´t support HyperThreading. Meanwhile, 3.6GHz P4 that is to be announced in June will be offered only for 775-pin sockets. The same for 3.8GHz (expected about August) and 4GHz (expected about October 2005) P4 processors with 570 and 580 respective ratings.

All these models will be released along with Socket 775 Celeron products. In June we are to see 2.8GHz Celeron 335, in August — 2.93GHz Celeron 340, in October 3.06GHz Celeton 345, in Q1 2005 — 3.2GHz Celeron 350. Unlike P4, these Celerons will be offered for Socket 478 platforms as well: 2.35GHz Socket 478 Celeron 325 and 2.66GHz Celeron 330 are expected in June. 2.53-2.8GHz Celerons will be the first products of the new classification made using 90nm process.

As for the chipsets, in June we should see Alderwood 925X and Grantsdale 915P and 915G, all supporting 90nm P4, (Grantsdale will also support Celerons). Besides, Grantsdale will support 533MHz FSB, while Alderwood will only operate with 800MHz.

SST unveils 8Mbit Serial Peripheral Interface flash

Silicon Storage Technology unveiled its new 8Mbit SPI (Serial Peripheral Interface) series, SST25LF080A, based on the proprietary SuperFlash technology.

The new chips are designed for hard drives, printers, security systems, wired and wireless networks. They feature 33MHz max. clock frequency and 8µA typical standby current. According to the press release, the company expects to add the 33MHz speed option to the 1Mbit and 512Kbit serial flash devices in H2 2004.


SST´s 8Mbit chips support Auto Address Increment (AAI) operation and small sector erase capability. The 8Mbit novelties are offered in 8-pin SOIC packages.

Brief specs:

  • 3.0~3.6V I/O voltage
  • Up to 100,000 rewrites
  • 100-year safe storage
  • 7mA read current
  • 70ms chip-erase time
  • 18ms sector- or block-erase time

Adtec introduces lead-free DDR2 SDRAM and 40x CompactFlash

DDR2 continues its market expansion. This time Adtec introduced lead-free PC2-3200 and PC2-4300 desktop, notebook and server modules with 256MB to 4GB capacities. At the moment no sales date, nor pricing is disclosed, but, according to the press release, shipments are to be launched in the nearest future.
