Intel Introduces New 64-bit Processor Line

Intel is now shipping the Intel Pentium 4 Processor Extreme Edition 3.73 GHz supporting Hyper-Threading (HT) Technology and four new processors in the Intel Pentium 4 Processor 6xx sequence supporting HT Technology. These new processors represent the latest in Intel’s family of high-performance desktop processors.

All five of the new processors support 64-bit memory addressability through Intel® Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T). Intel plans to ship EM64T on versions of every newly introduced Intel desktop processor including the company’s Intel Celeron D processor lines later this year.
