Based upon Intels 0.18 micron manufacturing process. Intel’s Most Advanced, Most Powerful Processor for Desktop PCs and Entry Level Workstations The Intel® Pentium® 4 processor at 1.30, 1.40, 1.50, 1.60, 1.70, 1.80, 1.90 and 2 GHz is designed for desktop PCs, as well as entry-level workstations. The processor is binary compatible with previous generation Intel Architecture processors. Intel® NetBurst™ Micro-architecture The NetBurst™ micro-architecture delivers a number of new and innovative features including (Hyper Pipelined Technology, 400 MHz System Bus, Execution Trace Cache, and Rapid Execution Engine) as well as a number of enhanced features (Advanced Transfer Cache, Advanced Dynamic Execution, Enhanced Floating-point and Multi-media Unit, and Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (SSE2)). Many of these new innovations and advances were made possible with improvements in processor technology, process technology, and circuit design and could not previously be implemented in high-volume, manufacturable solutions. The features and resulting benefits of the new micro-architecture are defined below. Hyper Pipelined Technology The hyper-pipelined technology of the NetBurst™ micro-architecture doubles the pipeline depth compared to the P6 micro-architecture used on todays Pentium® III processors. One of the key pipelines, the branch prediction / recovery pipeline, is implemented in 20 stages in the NetBurst™ micro-architecture, compared to 10 stages in the P6 micro-architecture. This technology significantly increases the performance, frequency, and scalability of the processor. 400 MHz System Bus The Intel® Pentium® 4 processor supports Intels highest performance desktop system bus by delivering 3.2 GB of data per second into and out of the processor. This is accomplished through a physical signaling scheme of quad pumping the data transfers over a 100-MHz clocked system bus and a buffering scheme allowing for sustained 400-MHz data transfers. This compares to 1.06 GB/s delivered on the Pentium® III proce [Ödev Ýndir]
