Xeon details from IDF
The Inquirer has the scoop
on Intel's plans for its Pentium 4 Xeon processors, straight from the IDF. "Gallatin" Xeon processors with more cache than current models will arrive this year, earlier than expected, and we'll also see the 533MHz front side bus migrate over from the desktop. Intel has claimed significant improvements in the Hyperthreading technology to be used in the upcoming desktop Pentium 4 3.06GHz, but there's no word on when those improvements will migrate to the Xeon line.
