P4's have been 64 bit for some time, the P4f was there first 64 bit chip allong with the noccona Xeon. The 6XX series has some other cool features, it has an equvilent to AMD's "Cool n' Quiet" technology and has 2MB of L2 cache.

Intels haven't had a true desktop 64 bit CPU. They have had CPUs that can imitate them mind.

They have had a 64 bit server CPU for a while if thats what your on about ?

The P4f is a true 64bit desktop CPU, its basically a precott with EMT64, and yes Noconna = Xeon880(64bit)

The P4f has 64-Memory support for the IA-32 instruction set (acts/pretends to be 64), but is not a true 64 bit CPU like the 6XX series.

EM64T gives a 32 bit, 64 bit instructions but it is still only a 32 bit CPU.
