Intel Corp. has completed initial production runs of dual-core processors and provided further details about its multi-core plans to its customers, signaling the beginning of an era when PCs will have two or more &quote;brains &quote; inside.

The company plans to deliver two separate dual-core products and dual-core-enabled chipsets for its Pentium processor-class families in the second quarter, including the Pentium processor Extreme Edition. The Intel Pentium processor extreme edition will include Hyper-Threading Technology, providing the ability to process four software "threads" simultaneously.

"In addition to our products, we are investing heavily to further prepare the industry for the shift to multi-core computing platforms," said Robert Crooke, VP, desktop platforms group and general manager, desktop marketing and strategic planning, Intel. "We accelerated this effort with the introduction of Hyper-Threading Technology three years ago and we're extending it by building multi-core processors. Platforms based on Intel multi-core technology will provide the performance and responsiveness consumers and businesses need to get the most enjoyment and productivity from their applications," Crooke.
