Pentium4-Northwood creates 3GHz
Initial tests in which the new processor also ran at 2.5GHz have already shown that the new Pentium4 based on the Northwood core would be very overclockable thanks to its new 0.13µm manufacturing technology. Now it is once again the Japanese who are showing you how to overclock the new Pentium4 correctly.
With the new 2.2GHz Pentium4, they achieved a clock frequency of 3GHz, which is already Intel's for the end of the year targeted 3GHz limit. For the end customer, we can only hope that the later mass-produced models will retain their good overclockability. For Intel, of course, it would now be an option to increase the clock frequency of the new Pentium4 very quickly so that you can first put a distance between yourself and AMD, which AMD could not catch up with so quickly, at least in terms of clock frequencies.
