Dual-Core Pentium D Headed for May Launch

Acer plans to announce in May an Aspire desktop PC based on Intel's dual-core Pentium D processor, the company confirmed Tuesday. "Currently, it's being planned for launch around [the] second half of May," said Stella Chou, a spokeswoman for Acer in Taipei. Acer will not formally announce the PC until Intel has launched the Pentium D, which is also expected to happen in May, she said.

The Pentium D-based Aspire was mentioned on Monday during a keynote by Abhi Talwalkar, vice president and general manager of Intel's Digital Enterprise Group, at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in Taipei. Acer plans to formally announce the computer and its specifications at the Computex exhibition, which will be held in Taipei May 31 through June 4.
