The 2.20 GHz Intel® Pentium® 4 processor is the next evolutionary step for desktop processor technology. Based on Intel's 0.13 micron manufacturing process, the new Pentium 4 processor increases the performance scalability of the Intel® NetBurst" micro-architecture by delivering higher clock speeds with lower thermal power and doubling the Level 2 cache to 512K.

Higher performance than ever before
The 2.20 GHz Pentium 4 processor delivers up to 40% higher productivity when compared to a 1.50 GHz Pentium 4 processor. Coupled with Microsoft® Windows® XP, the 2.20 GHz Pentium 4 processor delivers a high-performance digital media experience today, and provides you with enough power to handle innovations on the horizon such as DVD authoring and MPEG4 video.

Supports all major memory technologies
The Intel® 845 chipset features support for PC133 SDRAM and DDR200/266 SDRAM, providing a significant increase in the performance of a Pentium 4 processor-based system at a relatively low cost. The 845 chipset features a Write Cache that prevents writes from conflicting with critical reads, Flexible Memory Refresh for the most efficient use of memory, and up to 24 Open Memory Pages that increase access to memory for better system multitasking. For even more performance, check out the Intel® 850 chipset featuring dual-channel RDRAM with 3.2-gigabytes-per-second of peak memory bandwidth.
