Intel are to ditch the Pentium 4 processor and replace the chip with new dual-core Pentium chips along with Pentium Extreme Edition microprocessors.

Intel detailed their plans at the Intel Developers' Forum being held at San Francisco this week. Intel say the only way they will be able to increase performance in real terms is to add multiple cores per processor.

The chip giant predicts future developments in microprocessors will allow for cooler running at greater speeds, and less differences between mobile and desktop products. Intel plans to deliver the dual core Intel Pentium Processor Extreme Edition for PC enthusiasts and the Intel Pentium D processor for mainstream PC users in the second quarter of 2005.

The Pentium D processor was formerly code-named Smithfield. The Pentium Processor Extreme Edition which will also include a new brand logo, would include Hyper-Threading, showcasing the capability of four threads or instructions simultaneously versus single and dual threads from one and two-core processors.

Uhm... except for the commercial moniker, that's ancient news by industry standards.

It means little for me now, as I'll be getting an AMD 64 chip soon. It's good to see Intel keep up with the industry though.

LedZep - don't spam. I am going to stick with AMD for now till I see the new Intel chips impress me (unlikely).

im getting amd because i seriously doubt that the intel 64bit will compete, ive already seen one benchmark and there was only a small improvement over the 5xx series
