Vendors are starting to release machines based on Intel's Pentium 4 'Extreme Edition' processor in the region. Fast out of the blocks, Canadian vendor Emachine is releasing a PC which it claims is its fastest yet, the Emachine PowerBox P320WE.

The 3.2Ghz processor, widely seen as Intel's attempt to fight off competition from AMD's Athlon 64 processor, supports hyper threading technology and comes with 2MB of Level 3 cache, making it suitable for performance-hungry users such as the hard-core gamer market.

This is squarely where Emachine is aiming the PowerBox P320E, which also comes with a 120 GB Serial ATA hard drive, DVD-RW drive and enhanced ATI Radeon 9800 graphics card with 256 MB of video memory. This helps deliver enhanced graphics - a key factor for more realistic game play - through faster frame rates and higher-level detail rendering. It can preload a graphics frame buffer or a video frame before it is required by the processor, enabling higher throughput and faster frame rates when accessing memory and I/O devices. This results in more realistic game play and improved video editing performance.

"Our latest Emachine PowerBox P320E is designed with the high-end gamer and power-user in mind. It features the Intel Pentium 4 processor with HT Technology Extreme Edition at 3.2 GHz with the right combination of a graphic engine and DDR memory," said Sankar Kiruba, General Manager of Emachine FZE. "It delivers the performance needed to run the most sophisticated graphic-rich games and demanding applications available today," added Kiruba.

"It is a pleasure for us to see the fast acceptance that the Pentium 4 Processor Extreme Edition supporting HT Technology is gaining with our channel members in the region," said Maan Ahmadieh, Intel's regional channel manager, "This processor is designed to deliver groundbreaking performance for gamers and PC enthusiasts, and we are happy that our users in the Middle East will now be able to harness the power of the most demanding applications and games."
