    Intel:

    Now:
    Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.4Ghz,
    Socket 478, 130 nm process

    Pentium 4 3.4Ghz,
    Socket 478, 90 nm process (Prescott)

    April:
    Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.4Ghz,
    Socket 775, 130 nm process

    Pentium 4 3.6Ghz,
    Socket 775, 90 nm process (Prescott)

    July:
    Pentium 4 3.8Ghz,
    Socket 775, 90 nm process (Prescott)

    October:
    Pentium 4 4.0Ghz,
    Socket 775, 90 nm process (Prescott)

    Next Year:
    Codename: "Tejas," Socket 775, 90 nm process (Pentium 5?)


    AMD:
    Now:
    Athlon 64 FX-51 2.2Ghz,
    Socket 940, 130 nm process

    Athlon 64 3400+ 2.2Ghz,
    Socket 754, 130 nm process

    April:
    Athlon 64 FX-53 2.4Ghz,
    Socket 939, 130 nm process

    Athlon 64 3700+ 2.4Ghz,
    Socket 939, 130 nm process

    October:
    Athlon 64 FX-55 2.6Ghz,
    Socket 939, 90 nm process

    Athlon 64 4000+ 2.6Ghz,
    Socket 939, 90 nm process

    Athlon XP 3000+,
    Socket 754, 130 nm process

    Next Year:
    Codename: "Toledo," Socket 939, 90 nm process


    Looks as if AMD are all but discontinuing the Athlon XP series. Not fully sure but this is based on the above info.

    Actually the 3.4 GHz Prescott ("E") models on the 90 nm process are still not yet available. However, there are 3.4 GHz ("C") Northwood Chips presently available.

    Intel is having problems with the Prescott overheating, and are currently developing a new processor core design or "stepping" of the Prescott.

    It is important to note that Intel is the first major CPU company to release 90 nm products. Therefore it is expected to run into some issues.

    Nope, no 775 for you I'm afraid.

    The 775 motherboards have different pins etc, and have sticky out ones. Go read the article on Tom's Hardware about Alderwood and Grantsdale motherboards.

    Ahh yes, but how much will an Athlon 64 3200+ cost when the 4000+ comes along?

    Of course, we could be <s>factual</s> cruel and say that it&#39;s because they are in a rush to get them out before they have tested the new chips. Hmm, I seem to remember a software company doing things like that. Called themselves microshaft or something.

    Who do you want to be shafted by today?

    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    Quite easily. I had my old 1.4 Ghz with a GeForce 2 for 2 years. If I&#39;d have only gone for a graphics card upgrade it would have served me a year longer. My granny needed a PC though, so I got this beatiful FX51.
