After Intel lagged for a long time after its AMD rival in the 64Bit processor, it seems to be preparing to close the gap quickly and bring processors to the low-end market with support for such commands. Intel plans to launch new models soon in its Celeron series, which will include support for the EM64T command set (AMD64). These processors will receive the 326-355 model numbers, where the difference from existing numbers is by adding 1 to the model number of existing processors and launching the new 355 model, which will run on 3.33GHz. These processors, like the other Intel Celeron D series, will have a cache 256KB and will work with 533MHz FSB. It should be noted that AMD does not yet have a suitable answer for these processors, and its XFM series does not support 64Bit commands.
A small but important addition to these processors is the support for Execute Disable Bit, a technology that helps protect the system from viruses by blocking the possibility of running code in different parts of memory. We note that using Execute Disable Bit requires appropriate operating system support (the Windows XPX SP2 package includes such support) and that this extension has only existed until now in the J models, which were not common.
The date of launch and pricing of new processors is not yet clear.
