Intel release last in current line of Pentium 4 processors

This week Intel quietly released the last in the current line of Pentium IV processors, a 3.8GHz model.

Intel has previously stated that this will be the last Pentium IV of the current line. Instead they intend to start developing other speed enhancing architecture changes, rather than raw CPU cycle speed. The new CPUs will also follow a new naming standard which will de-emphasise the actual CPU speed, following AMD’s current marketing strategy.
