Default Intel beats AMD again: 2.26 and 2.80 launched!

Since yesterday, Friday 23, the new P4 2.66 and 2.80 are selling in Japan. Both CPU have the new shrinked die, which will later also be available for all other P4. The new 2.66 and 2.80 are now running with slightly higher voltage: it's now 1.525 instead of 1.500. At the same same the massive price reduction for the existing CPU was implemented. Street price in Japan for the boxed versions:

2.53> 30,000 Yen = 460 AUD
2.26> 52,000 Yen = 780 AUD
2.80> 65,000 Yen = 1000 AUD

(EDIT: I'm still drunken from yesterday night, the 100 has become 1000 )


I got myself a P4 2.66:

all my mistakes, I mixed up prices and frequencies. It's now edited. ... getting old, maybe such a CPU is too faster for me already?

they shrinked it, so that it can endure higher frequencies, read here:
