INTEL CORPORATE PROFILE



For more than three decades, Intel Corporation has developed technology enabling the computer and Internet revolution that has changed the world. Founded in 1968 to build semiconductor memory products, Intel introduced the world's first microprocessor in 1971. Today, Intel supplies the computing and communications industries with chips, boards, systems, and software building blocks that are the "ingredients" of computers, servers and networking and communications products. These products are used by industry members to create advanced computing and communications systems. Intel's mission is to be the preeminent building block supplier to the Internet economy.

 

PRODUCT INTRODUCTION



Intel's newest core revision can be summed up relatively easily. The prescott core not meant to dwarf the performance numbers of the older northwood counterpart, but was created to take advantage of the newer 90nm production process, allow for higher clock frequency scaling along with the addition of the new enhanced SSE3 instruction set and a larger L1 and L2 on-die cache. When the word came about that the prescott core was to be on the market, the unfortunate relative time frame coincided with AMD's release of their new Athlon64 line of processors. Due to this occurrence, people starting raving that the Prescott was meant to be Intel's defensive tactic against their rival's 64-bit based alternative. This can't be any farther from the truth.


Just in case you didn't know, this version of the prescott core is still for 32-bit computing. It is not meant to compete against 64-bit computing. It is a minor core revision with some enhanced features and is based on a more refined manufacturing process and that is all. Some people were negatively portraying the Prescott to be a failure because its performance numbers didn't blast the northwoods out of the water.


But it never was meant to.....
