Pentium 4 Xeon is late
According to the original plan, Intel wanted to present the Xeon processor based on the Pentium 4 (code name Foster) today. But yesterday the launch was stopped at the last moment, which obviously continues Intel's breakdown series. The reason for this is still unclear.
The only difference between the Pentium 4 Xeon and the normal Pentium 4 is its dual-processor capability, the cache size, however, remained unchanged. In contrast to the desktop Pentium-4, however, it needs a new socket with 603 instead of 423 pins. In the professional workstation area, it should replace the Pentium 3 Xeon.
