3 Intel Desktop Processor Overview  Late last quarter, Intel started the transition of the P4's front side bus (FSB) from 533MHz  800MHz; Intel will continue the transition to 800FSB this quarter  In response to the AMD Athlon 64 launch, Intel launched their P4 Extreme Edition CPU at 3.2GHz/800FSB, which comes with 2MB of L3 cache (giving it a total of total 2.5MB of L2 and L3 cache combined)  The P4 EE is essentially a desktop version of their Xeon CPU w/ 2MB cache; the P4 EE will be in very limited supply starting in November  The Celeron will continue ramping up in speed to 3.06GHz; when it hits 3.06GHz, it will transition over to the new Prescott core, which will give it 533FSB and 256K L2 cache  For the current Celeron CPUs (2.0GHz ~ 2.8GHz), it will be based on the Northwood core with 400FSB and 128K L2 cache  Prescott, the successor to the P4 Northwood core, will be delayed until Q1/2004

4 Intel Desktop Processor Roadmap P4-N/400 = Northwood core (0.13 micron); 512K L2 cache; 400MHz FSB P4-N/533 = Northwood core (0.13 micron); 512K L2 cache; 533MHz FSB P4-N/800 = Northwood core (0.13 micron); 512K L2 cache; 800MHz FSB P4-EE/800 = Northwood core (0.13 micron); 512K L2 cache; 2MB L2 cache; 800MHz FSB P4-P/800 = Prescott core (0.09 micron); 1MB L2 cache; 800MHz FSB Celeron-N = Northwood core (0.13 micron); 128K L2 cache; 400MHz FSB Celeron-P = Prescott core (0.09 micron); 256K L2 cache; 533MHz FSB Red denotes Hyper-Threading Technology

5 Intel Processor Q4/2003 Breakdown  Intel launched their P4 Extreme Edition processor targeted specifically at the gaming market segment  The P4 EE is essentially a desktop version of their Xeon CPU w/ 2MB L3 cache  Pricing for the P4 EE will be in the mid to high $800 range and will be available in limited quantities beginning in November  We still have some of the P4/400FSB at 1.8GHz and 2.0GHz; once those CPUs are sold out, they will be discontinue  For the P4/533FSB CPUs, the 2.40, 2.66, 2.8, and 3.0GHz (with Hyper-Threading) are still available; we dropped the 2.53 because it is the same cost as the 2.66  The next generation P micron core (Prescott) that's scheduled to launch this quarter will be delayed till Q1/2004

6 Intel Processor Q1/2004 Breakdown  Intel will launch their P4 Prescott core CPUs at 3.4 and 3.6GHz; Prescott will come with 1MB L2 cache  Prescott's FSB will remain at 800MHz  A important point about the Prescott processor: IT IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE CURRENT 865G/865PE BOARDS; the voltage requirement for Prescott is different from Northwood  When the Prescott launches in Q1/2004, Intel and Microstar will refresh their 865 series of boards to accommodate the new processor  By this quarter, the majority of P4 CPUs will be 800FSB  The Celeron will scale up to 2.8GHz

7 Intel Processor Q2/2004 Breakdown  The P4 Prescott will continue to scale up in speed to 3.8GHz  In order for the Celeron to reach 3.06GHz, Intel will migrate it to the Prescott core  The Celeron-P FSB will increase to 533MHz and the L2 cache will double to 256K

8 Intel Processor Q3/2004 Breakdown  No major change for this quarter, other than a speed increase to >3.8GHz for the P4 and up to >3.06GHz for the Celeron  By this quarter, all the P4 will have 800FSB and Hyper- Threading  Intel will release details about Teja, which will be the successor to the P4 Prescott core  The Teja will be a 775 pin processor, which will require a new socket type (socket “T”)

10 Premio Desktop Q4/2003 Breakdown  For the NetPC [Calypso and Argos], Mini PC [Proteus], and Micro ATX [Minos] chassis, we currently have the S651, 845GV, 865G, and 854GLC  The S651 (based on the SiS 651 chipset) is a low cost all in one motherboard that supports P4/533FSB and has an open AGP slot (along with integrated video)  The 845GV is based on the Intel 845GV chipset with integrated video (but no AGP slot) that supports P4/533FSB CPUs  The 845GV will be discontinued in Q4/2003, once we have exhausted our inventory  The 865G is based on a MSI m/b, while the 865GLC is based on an Intel OEM m/b; both of which uses the 865G chipset with P4/800FSB, dual DDR400, onboard Intel Extreme Graphics 2 (with an open AGP 8X slot), and serial ATA- 150 support

11 Premio Desktop Q4/2003 Breakdown (cont.)  For the ATX chassis [Athena and Shadowhawk G2], we have the 845PE, 845PESV/PESVL, 865PE, and 865PERL  The 845PE is based on a MSI m/b, while the 845PESV and 845PESVL (w/ onboard Intel LAN) are based on Intel OEM m/b  The 845PE, 845PESV/PESVL are based on the Intel 845PE chipset and supports P4/533FSB and DDR333  The 865PE is based on a MSI m/b, while the 865PERL is based on an Intel OEM m/b; both of which uses the 865PE chipset with P4/800FSB, dual DDR400, and serial ATA support  For the Calypso series, we will continue on with the Calypso 4E, which is based on the Intel 845GV chipset  There is insufficient demand for a P4/800FSB Calypso this quarter

12 Premio Desktop Q1/2004 Breakdown  No major changes this quarter  We will be refreshing the 865 series (both MSI and Intel) to support the upcoming Prescott processor  We will phase in the Athena/Shadowhawk G2 845PE2 to replace the 845PE once our inventory is exhausted; the 845PE2 will have four rear USB ports; our current 845PE comes with two rear USB ports

13 Premio Desktop Q2/2004 Breakdown  Intel will introduce the Grantsdale chipset, which will be the successor to the 865 chipset; Grantsdale will have the following features:  1. Support for the next generation DDR2-400 memory  2. Support for the next generation of PCI Express slots  3. Support for the next generation P4 processor based on the Teja core with the new socket T design  For the Proteus and Minos platform, we will release the S655, which will replace our S651; the S655 will add 800FSB support  We will also release our next generation Calypso 5, which will add 800FSB, SATA, and DDR400 support; the Calypso 5 will be based on the Intel 865GV or SiS 655 chipset  Depending on demand, we will try to phase out all our P4/533FSB platforms (845PE2 and 845PESV/PESVL; S651 and Calypso 4E) and transition over to P4/800FSB platforms exclusively

14 Premio Desktop Q3/2004 Breakdown  No major changes for this quarter

15 Desktop Technologies  USB 2.0: USB 2.0 is backwards compatible w/ USB 1.1 devices. It is also known as Hi-Speed USB. This should take us to the end of 2003 and beyond. There are no plans for USB 3.0.  IEEE1394/Firewire: Currently, Firewire maxes out at 400Mbps; Firewire is mainly used for DV (digital video) editing. With the advent of USB 2.0, Firewire will remain a niche technology for use with video editing/capturing

16 Desktop Technologies (cont.)  Serial ATA (SATA) is the evolution of IDE technology  SATA will start at SATA-150, or 150MB/sec  Specs for SATA II (300MB/sec) and III (600MB/sec) are already in progress  Two major benefits of SATA are: thinner cable and lower voltage requirements  Current flat ribbon ATA-100 cable is wide and can restrict airflow inside a chassis (see picture); while the SATA cable are much thinner and flexible  SATA HDDs are available now  Optical drives (CD-RW, DVD, etc) will begin to transition over to SATA beginning in 2004

17 Desktop Technologies (cont.)  Memory: With the launch of the 865 chipset, Intel will use dual channel DDR400 as the standard for desktop systems; the next generation of memory is DDR2-400, which will be supported by Intel’s Grantsdale chipset coming out in Q2/2004  AGP: For the majority of desktop systems, AGP 4X will continue to be the norm; systems based on the Intel 865 series will have AGP 8X support  For the current generation of video cards (ATI and nVidia) there is only a minor performance gain going from AGP 4X to 8X

18 Desktop Technologies (cont.)  PCI Express: This new bus will replace the aging PCI slot, which is more than 10 years old now  PCI Express will first appear in the Intel Grantsdale chipset, which will launch in Q2/2004  The main advantages of PCI Express are:  1. Support for hotswap cards  2. Much higher bandwidth than standard PCI slot or even PCI-X slot found on high end servers and/or workstations  3. Support for quality of service policies, which means data with higher priority will get through first (ideal for real time applications)

19 Desktop Technologies (cont.)  4. Smaller slot; a PCI Express X1 slot is about ¼ the length of a PCI slot (see diagram)  PCI Express is designed to exist with current PCI slots; this is to make the transition from PCI to PCI Express easier for everyone  PCI Express X1 slots give us 200MB/sec in one direction, or a concurrent bandwidth of 400MB (compared to 133MB/sec for the current PCI slot)  PCI Express X16 slot will replace the current AGP 8X slot for video cards; X16 gives us a concurrent bandwidth of 8GB/sec, which is DOUBLE the current AGP 8X slot  The majority of PCI Express devices will initially be X1; there are only a few devices (such as video cards, gigabit NICs, or SCSI RAID controllers) that require the bandwidth of the X16 slot

20 Summary for Intel Desktop Processors  For P4 processors, begin to gradually transition your customers over to the 800FSB  By the end of 2003, your resellers should transition over to 800FSB or are in the process of doing so  For the Celeron processors, there is little change, other than incremental speed increases every quarter  When the Celeron hits 3.06GHz, its FSB will be bumped up to 533MHz and the L2 cache will doubled to 256K  One of the benefit of moving to the 800FSB P4 is Hyper-Threading (HT)  All 800FSB CPUs, regardless of speed, will be HT enabled  The P4 Extreme Edition will be available in limited supplies starting in November  The next generation P4 Prescott CPU is pushed back to Q1/2004

21 Summary for Premio Desktops  Begin migrating your customers to the Intel 865 family of chipset (865PE and 865G) platforms  We will run the 845PE (until the end Q1/2004) and 865 chipset in parallel for those who do not want the higher cost associated with 865/800FSB  In Q2/2004, depending on demand, we may release the Calypso 5, based on the Intel 865G or SiS 655 chipset, to give us 800FSB support on our NetPC platform  By Q2/2004, our entire desktop product line should be migrated over to P4/800FSB
