Prescott isn't Pentium 5 - Prescott isn't Pentium 5
Mon Feb 02, 2004 | 12:38A| PermaLink
The big news today is of course Intel's news core; Prescott. PCStats covers this late-breaking event live with a review right here, but we'd also like to mention the many other sites that have had to work on a Sunday to get their reviews published when the NDA expired. Accelenation test the 3.2Ghz and 3GHz model while the gang at Hothardware compare against the the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition. Lost Circuits take the more diplomatic route, saying; "Potential shortcomings of Prescott are not present in Intels new flagship processor, that is the P4 ExtremeEdition at 3.4 GHz which is complemented by a 3.4 GHz version of Northwood as well. We have taken three speed grades of Prescott (2.8-3.2GHz) and compared them with the existing Northwood (up to 3.2GHz) and P4EE (3.2 and 3.4 GHz) with respect to performance and thermal dissipation. The result is a variety of different meanings for the term scalability." Xtremesystems have a few words on Prescott right here, as motherboard review dishes out their on comments.

Prescott isn't Pentium 5 says TechReport; "Prescott is also a major reworking of the Pentium 4's microarchitecture--major enough that I'm surprised Intel didn't opt to call this processor the Pentium 5." have two articles up for us, the first, Intel Prescott: One More Willamette-like Slow Processor or a Worthy Piece? and the second, Massive Attack: Performance Tests of 14 Processors Priced at $200+.
