Intel has delayed its Tejas core until 2005

I saw this over at X-Bit Labs...
Based on the objections mentioned herein and according to unofficial sources, I believe that Intel will launch the Tejas processor in mass-quantities only in early 2005, but not in late 2004, as previously reported. At least, there are reports about 3.60GHz Prescott delay to Q2 from Q1 and, as a consequence, the delay of Prescott 3.80GHz to Q3 plus 3.80GHz+ move into Q4, resulting in the Tejas actual launch in the first quarter of 2005.
Bummer to see the delay, but I guess when sales are going great why hurt your own sales with a new CPU!

Always interesting to hear Intel talking about a new CPU core. i've only been hearing hype about the Prescott... Don't really know anything about the Tejas besides the name.

Anyone know what will be unique about the Tejas? Like I said, I know nothing, honestly.

Both Tejas and Prescott processors are based on Intel’s NetBurst architecture already utilized in Intel Pentium 4 processors. The Prescott and Tejas are expected to bring some advantages that include enhancements of the NetBurst paramount peculiarities that influence CPU performance the most. First of all, the L1 cache will be enlarged to 16 and 24KB in Prescott and Tejas processors respectively from Northwood’s 8KB. Secondly, Tejas and Prescott will include 16K uOps Trace Cache, a substantial improvement over Northwood’s 12K uOps. Thirdly, the L2 caches of Tejas and Prescott chips made using 90nm technology will be 1MB, while the 65nm Tejas is projected to have 2MB of L2. Additionally, in an attempt to lower the impact of deep-20+ stage pipeline on actual performance, Intel will implement a new, more efficient branch prediction mechanism in its forthcoming microprocessors. Finally, Intel will raise both core and PSB clocks, resulting in even faster computing speed of the next-generation NetBurst processors. Furthermore, following Intel’s recent general policy, presuppose enhanced efficiency of the Hyper-Threading technology as well as several new instructions (Prescott New Instructions, Tejas New Instructions) to optimize certain operations with every new generation of NetBurst chips.

Not too shabby... can't wait to get my hands on one!

They're gonna really rock, by the sounds of it. I'm wondering at what level DDR/DDR2 will be at by then to compliment the projected rise in FSB speed - we'll have PCI Express, the next generation of SATA HDDs, and fruck knows where gfx cards will be at performance wise, especially without any of the current bottlenecks - we can also expect water cooling becoming more the norm.
I'm getting excited already at the prospect......dunno why, I'm so broke at the moment, I can barely pay attention!!

Actually, Intel is promoting a new form factor standard to address the heat issues. I seriously doubt we'll see water cooling move into the mainstream market any time soon, there are simply too many hurdles.

Here's some BTX info.. ... ec_1_0.pdf
