Intel preps 800MHz front side bus for Pentium 4

— 12:23 PM on November 18, 2002

The Inquirer is reporting that Intel is skipping a 667MHz front side bus in favor of one running at 800MHz. This "Canterwood" chipset will also support dual channel DDR400 memory, and appear sometime in Q2 of next year. Hyper-Threading also looks like it's going to trickle down the Pentium 4 line, with HT-enabled speed grades as low as 2.4GHz appearing in Q2 '03.
