quote: So taking account of that speed a 3Ghz Woodcrest and 2 cores a 3Ghz woodcrest is likely 4x the speed of 3Ghz p4 - so in p4 terms - its could be consider a 12Ghz P4.
quote: "This reasoning explains why all of sudden Intel marketing does not talk anymore about 10 GHz CPUs, but about the "era of thread parallelism"."
quote: Realistically speaking, we should be able to see NetBurst based processors reach somewhere between 8 – 10GHz in the next five years before the architecture is replaced yet again. Reaching 2GHz isn’t much of a milestone, however reaching 8 – 10GHz begins to make things much more exciting than they are today. Obviously this 8 – 10GHz clock range would be based on Intel’s 0.07-micron process that is forecasted to debut in 2005. These processors will run at less than 1 volt, 0.85v being the current estimate.

quote: As someone said on Aces.
Intel also told us we'd have 10GHz processors by 2005"
Just thought I'd add that.
