Default Re: P4--different cores? Prescott, Northwood, Coppermine??

I'm not sure about the Coppermine...

The Northwood is one of the best Pentium 4 cores ever made. The Gallatin is just as good too, but it was only in the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.4ghz processor. The Prescott is a piece of crap. It has longer pipelines, which produce TONS of heat, and they use TONS of power (over 100w average).

The Gallatin and Northwood are 130nm, while the Prescott is 90nm. They're going to come out with the 65nm Conroe core soon. It's going to be awesome...expect it to be 30% faster than NetBurst.
