Moreover, future versions of Prescott, which could be out by the end of 2005, will definitely be dual-core. Since each core will have Hyper-Threading enabled, the OS will be tricked into believing that the desktop computer contains four CPUs. With the equivalent of several CPUs running, Intel will feel confident placing the processor numbers of such dual-core processors at a high level. The desktop Pentium M, however, will not have any support for Hyper-Threading. Although the desktop Pentium Ms will be less expensive and run cooler than any Pentium 4s, they won't be able to match the speed of future dual-core Prescotts. The Intel representative also conceded that future Prescotts will be 64-bit devices, or at least will feature 64-bit support, and will be able to run Microsoft's 64-bit Windows XP operating system.
