64-Bit cat out of the bag.

Intel will release a swath of 64-bit CPUs this week.

Even the Celeron gets the treatment.

Thanx, got a link?

Probably will support DDR2. Wonder if the MCH will be in the CPU, that has prevented AMD from using DDR2 until they redesign the CPU.

The news is still early and it's a holiday.

The gist of it is that Intel will add what you know as EM64T to just about all the current CPUs in production.

From the initial readings I don't see any premium dollar attached to said CPUs. My crystal ball sees the 32-bit only CPUs will just fade away.

That is good news Bob......

I posted my knowledge (at the time) on EM64T in the Desktop forum on Feb 8:

"For some time the 64 bit Intel Extended Memory Technology (EM64T) has been on the Zeon and Itanium 2 systems for businesses. There has been stories of Intel 64 bit processors being sold in Japan with the EM64T capabilities enabled, and are positioned primarily for uniprocessor servers and workstations. Some speculation/editors here in the USA seem to think the Intel 64 bit for home Pent 4 processors will be available by June, however Intel has not said anything about that, and will not comment on the Japan story. From what I read in the past, Intel does not want to release the 64-bit for Home use until the new Microsoft Operations Longhorn or possibly the WinXP(SP3) is released that includes the year huh?

Intel has said the 955, 945G, and 945P Express Chipsets will be out in 2nd quarter (before June). Also available then should be Intel's Dual-Core Processor.... quite expensive, like the current dual (SLI) Video Card computers. The Extreme Edition 3.73GHz procesor with 2MB level two cache is supposed to be introduced this year and will suppport EM64T."

There has been speculation since last December:
