Intel 6xx & 3.73GHz EE Processors Preview
Posted by Philipp Esselbach on: 02/20/2005 04:50 PM [ Print | 0 comment(s) ]
MBReview has posted up their take on Intel's latest line of processors, the 6xx series, as well as the first "Prescott" core incarnation of the Extreme Edition at 3.73GHz.
Intel has made several key changes to the IA-32 architecture to allow for these 64-bit applications, such as adding support for 64-bit linear addressing. Variations of the IA-32 architecture may not offer full 64-bit linear addressing, such as the processors we'll be looking at today which offer support for 48-bit linear addressing. This issue will be covered in a more detailed nature when we discuss the memory organization under 64-bit mode.
