Description: Dual core processor replacing Tejas. Smithfield is the Workstation / gaming implementation of Paxville, part of the Lyndon platform. Uses the LGA775 socket and the Glenwood and Lakeport chipsets. Based on the NetBurst / Pentium 4 architecture but without HyperThreading. Basically two Pentium 4 chips on one die.
Launched in Q2 at 2.8, 3.0 and 3.2 GHz named 820 ($241), 830 ($316) and 840 ($530) respectively.
Launched as 'Pentium D' and 'Pentium EE', where EE adds HyperThreading.
Die size 213 mm2 Bus speed 800 MHz L2 cache 2 x 1MB Process 90 nm Core speed 2.8, 3.0 and 3.2 GHz Transistors 230 M Form factor LGA775 Core Smithfield
