Intel's new chips

Prescott, the next big desktop chip from Intel, is slated to come out at 3.4GHz, while Dothan, an energy-efficient chip for slim notebooks, will have a server-size cache and is expected to debut at 1.8GHz, according to computer industry sources. Read the report at C|Net News.com.  Dothan is a 90 nanometer mobile chip with a 400MHz front side bus and 2M of cache, it appears.

Sempron, Athlon,

If that wasn't enough to learn,  they now have wiped out the Duron & Athlon chips & made one chip to replace them called the Sempron

The Athlon64 is AMD's best chance yet to break into the market for business PCs. The chip comes with a number of performance enhancements, including an integrated memory controller.  Additionally, it runs 32-bit software, the kind found on desktops today, and 64-bit software, found on high-end workstations and servers. Intel desktop chips don't have the latter capacity. AMD executives acknowledge that 64-bit desktops, which can take advantage of more memory than 32-bit desktops, will be relatively rare at first, but assert that gamers' enthusiasm and word-of-mouth marketing might be able to build momentum for these desktops.

Intel's explanations

Once you have decided on the processor brand family that is right for you, Intel processor numbers allow you to quickly differentiate among processors within that product brand family. The numbers are based on a variety of features that may include the processor's underlying architecture, cache, Front Side Bus, clock speed, power and other Intel technologies.

A processor number:

* Represents a broad set of features that can influence overall computing experience
* Differentiates the relative features within a processor brand family (e.g. within the Intel® Core™2 processor family or within the Intel® Xeon® processor family)
* The processor number is not a measurement of performance
* Is one of several factors, along with processor brand, specific system configurations and system-level benchmarks, to be considered when choosing the right processor for you.
