- Versatility, Performance and Reliability to Meet All Your Computing NeedsEveryone wants something different from their computer—work, play, Internet, music, learning and more. A PC featuring the Intel Pentium 4 Processor opens the door to many new experiences and is as versatile as you are.
- Greater Performance with Hyper-Threading Technology (HT Technology)Hyper-threading enables multi-threaded software applications to execute two software threads in parallel, thereby improving system responsiveness. Intel Pentium 4 Processors enabled with HT Technology deliver performance and multitasking gains that result in increased productivity and efficiency.
- Scalability and Performance with Intel EM64TIntel Extended Memory 64 Technology (Intel EM64T) can improve performance by allowing the system to address more than 4 GB of both virtual and physical memory. Intel EM64T also provides support for 64 bit computing to help handle the applications of tomorrow.
- Execute Disable Bit (EDB)Combined with a supporting operating system, Intel's Execute Disable Bit can ward off certain malicious "buffer overflow" attacks. Execute Disable Bit allows the processor to classify areas in memory by where application code can execute and where it cannot. When a malicious worm attempts to insert code in the buffer, the processor disables code execution, preventing damage or worm propagation.
