Intel To Release P4 672 & 662 w/ VT

Intel is expected to unveil two new desktop processors Pentium 4 672 and 662 on Monday that come with hardware support for virtualization technologies, but users won’t be able to take advantage of that technology for some time. Virtualization technology allows PC and server users to run multiple operating environments on a single processor, allowing one machine to be carved into several “virtual” computers. Early next year, Intel will bring the hardware virtualization technology into its dual-core Pentium D processors. Around the same time Intel will also introduce virtualization into its Xeon server processors. The Pentium 4 672 runs at 3.8GHz, features 2MB of cache memory and costs $ 605, just like the 670 processor. The 662 processor costs $ 401, the same price as the 660 processor.
