Northwood samples

— 1:29 AM on August 4, 2001

PROM is reporting that Northwood has quietly begun to make the rounds. This sample is a Pentium 4 1.5GHz processor in the Socket 478 format. While the L1 cache remains the same as the Willamette, Intel has doubled the L2 cache on the Northwood to 512KB.

Samples come on the Intel D845WN—Intel's original i845 SDR board. It features 6/1/1 (PCI/AGP/CNR) slots and will support up to 3GB memory. PROM is expecting that Northwood will be released some time in November.
