Dual-core Pentium D systems on their way

By Derek Sooman on
HP, Lenovo and several others are in the process of rolling out machines armed with Intel Corp.'s new dual-core Pentium D processor. The new technology, which includes an accompanying chip set, was launched by Intel at an event held on Thursday in San Francisco.

Hewlett-Packard Co., of Palo Alto, Calif., is rolling out a new entry-level workstation and business desktop featuring the new chip and 945G chip set. The xw4300 workstation will run on both the single-core and dual-core Pentiums.

The Compaq dc7600 Business Desktop PC will come with SATA hard drives and DDR2 memory. It will run on the dual- or single-core Pentiums or Celeron D processor. It also will ship with an embedded security chip that will meet the requirements of the Trusted Computing Group's Trusted Platform Module 2.1 specification.

The HP systems boast dual-core Pentium D 840 processors, with speeds of up to 3.2GHz. Dell will also outfit its Precision 380 workstation with the new Pentium D chip.
