A CDE Definition
The first Pentium 4 chips to use the 130 nanometer (0.13 micron) process technology. Introduced in 2002 with clock speeds from 2.0 to 2.2 GHz, model designations depend on the speed of the frontside bus. See Pentium 4.
Intel's flagship CPU chip, introduced in late 2000. The successor to the Pentium III chip, the Pentium 4 features the NetBurst micro-architecture (see NetBurst). All Pentium 4 chips are single core, while dual-core Pentium models go by different names such as Pentium D and Pentium Processor Extreme Edition, all omitting the "4" designation.
Available in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions with and without Hyper-Threading, the Pentium 4 was introduced at the end of 2000 with 1.4 and 1.5 GHz clock rates. Speed later reached 3.8 GHz. Pentium 4 chips were first built with 180nm process technology and subsequently shrunk to 130, 90 and 65 nm.
From Rambus to DDR Memory
Pentium 4 chips support from 2GB to 8GB of DDR memory. Intel's first Pentium 4 chipset, the 850, supported only Rambus memory, but subsequent chipsets, starting with the 845, supported the more common DDR SDRAM. See dual core, Pentium and Pentium Processor Extreme Edition, Pentium 4 Processor Extreme Edition.
