Intel and Velocity Microt have partnered to introduce a new line of systems based on Intel's new dual core processor technology. Featuring the Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 840 processor in its new DCX line of computers, Velocity Micro will ship systems tuned to operate at up to 4GHz at introduction.

The new dual core processors feature two discreet CPU cores and HyperThreading to produce four processing threads, which will appear to the PC operating system as four separate processors, allowing for faster speeds and significant performance gains. The model 840 processor is also ready for upcoming 64bit OSes.

"Working closely with Intel's processor teams, Velocity Micro has been a part of the process for some time," said Randy Copeland, Velocity Micro president and founder. "We tested early versions of the Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 840 processor and were amazed by its capabilities, particularly when matched with our liquid cooling solution. As one of the few initial product launch partners for this technology, we are very excited to offer our customers this powerful new processor. It's perfectly suited for power users who run several applications on their computer simultaneously, and as more games are coded to utilize the multithreading capabilities of this technology, gamers will reach new levels of immersive play," Copeland added.
