3.2GHz Pentium 4 XE reaches the retail
South Korean Say25.com reports that the first Pentium 4 Extreme Edition processors reached the retail. Naturally, they have 3.2GHz clock speeds, 2MB L3 cache, support 800 MHz FSB and work with Socket 478 on i865PE (865G) and i875P. The "Pentium 4 Extreme Edition" label on the box front and "Pentium 4 XE" side label clearly indicate that "EE" and "XE" stand for the same, as we have reported before.
Besides 2MB L3 cache, the new Pentium 4 XE (Xeon Edition? :) differ by 1.55V voltage (vs. 1.525V of usual P4).
Finally, in Korea Pentium 4 XE costs quite a price 1.3 million won (about $1080)!
What is really interesting, British The Inquirer states that Pentium 4 XE will remain deficit in USA, where it´s available only in ready systems from several companies, including Dell, Alienware and Evesham. However, according to one of British distributors, when this processor arrives these days, it will cost considerably less than $925 at the moment of announcement.
P.S. Those who still don´t know why Pentium 4 XE is worth a closer look and also why it costs so much should read our Pentium 4 Extreme Edition vs Athlon 64 FX article.
