It’s been 3 weeks I last touched this blog, sorry everyone. I’m back now after a few busy and hectic weeks, though I’m suppose to enjoy my holidays.
Anyway, let’s take a look of the latest Intel processors, Pentium Extreme Edition 955. The speed for this Dual Core CPU is clocked at 3.46GHz, which is currently the highest speed for desktop computer. It is utilizing a faster FSB (Front Side Bus) too, at 1066MHz.
As I mentioned is an earlier post, saying Intel Processors are able to go beyond 4GHz by utilizing the latest 65nm process technology, this processor is manufactured using 65nm technology instead of 90nm that most of the new desktop processors are using. The lower the process technology means lower processor’s power requirements and more processors can be produced in a silicon wafer, hence, lower the manufacturing cost.
Using 65nm process technology, 955 is operating at 1.20 – 1.33V operating voltage range while drawing a power of approximately 130 watts.
As compared to the last CPU Intel released, Pentium Extreme Edition 840 that runs on 3.2 GHz, Pentium Extreme Edition 955 doubles the amount of Level 2 (L2) cache from 2MB to 4MB (2MB for each core) !

Intel processors will be initially adopted in Apple Computerâ€™s entry-level Macintosh PC lineup, including the Mac Mini, iBook, and iMac series, with a launch in Taiwan slated for June 6 2006, according to sources at Taiwan PC distributors.
However, Apple Taiwan refused to comment on the speculation and will only disclose the launching schedule according to the companyâ€™s official statement.
Hopefully, if the speculation is true we will see Intel-based Macintosh PC in June next year and full Macintosh product range will be converted to using Intel processors by the end of 2007.
Alright, I found a funny Google Maps advertisement via Google Video while I was browsing around just now. Hope you like it.
Somehow, I think this is not an official Google Maps advertisement but I am not too sure. Anyway, check it out and tell me do you think this is for real? :D
