Intel lowers core voltage to 1.475V

Intel will decrease the core voltage for some of their Pentium 4 and Celeron processors that are manufactured using 0.13 micron technology from 1.525V to 1.475V, according to what we have heard from some of our sources. The move is unprecedented, since Intel only increased the Vcore during the last three years in order to improve the yield of the chips.

All the models in the range from 2.0 to 2.80GHz will now have the core voltage of 1.475V or 1.50V, while the up and coming Pentium 4 3.06GHz and maybe the 3.20GHz will have the Vcore of 1.525V.
