Intel Pentium 4 on 65nm to use less power

Posted on Sunday, October 02 2005 @ 11:21:50 CEST by

THG reports Intel's upcoming single-core Cedar Mill 65nm Pentium 4 processors will consume less power than the current Prescott generation. According to their sources the Cedar Mill will drop from 95W to 86W compared to the current generation. Dual-core processors are hot right now but single-core processors like the Cedar Mill will still be used for Intel's business platforms.
While performance gains are expected to be limited for the aging Pentium 4 architecture, Intel apparently has made significant progress in reducing the power consumption of the processor. Sources showed Tom's Hardware Guide a qualification sample of a 65 nm Pentium 4 653 chip - a processor that recently had been removed from Intel's official roadmap - which consumes about 10 percent less power than its preceding chip generation. The thermal design power (TDP) rating for Cedar Mill chips will be 86 watts, down from 95 watts for the Prescott core with 2 MByte L2 cache. The 86 watt power envelope applies to the Pentium 4 600-series ranging in a clock speed from 3.0 to 3.6 GHz.
