Intel drops plans for 4GHz Pentium 4

By Derek Sooman on October 15, 2004, 6:22 AM
Apparently, there will be no version of the Pentium 4 processor that runs at 4GHz. Intel has decided to switch its emphasis onto other areas of the processor's specifications, such as additional cache, dual cores, faster FSB and so forth. Originally, we were meant to see Pentium 4s that went as high as 10GHz. Once again, a reminder that company product roadmaps can be a lot of nonsense. Whether this means that the Pentium 5 is on the way, who can tell. But like the article says, new Intel chips will probably have improvements in other areas besides pure clock speed for now.
