X-bit Labs reports the Intel Cedar Mill Pentium 4 6x1 series processors will have a power consumption of only 65W. Following the recent power consumption reduction of certain Intel Pentium D 900-series processors to 95W, Intel Corp. is gearing up to introduce Intel Pentium 4 processors 6x1-series with thermal design power (TDP) slashed to 65W, a figure that Intel’s performance-mainstream processors have not seen for years, according to Taiwan-based mainboard makers cited by HKEPC web-site.

The reductions in power consumption of both single-core and dual-core designs is attributed to improvements of Intel’s 65nm production technology in general and in decreases of power leakages in particular.
