I have been looking at computers but am stumped as to what is the difference between intel pentium 4 and intel pentium 4 prescott??

I have seen a few computers offering this prescott spec but is it the same as p4 or what??

Thanks a confused (still) computer wannabe buyer

For the general user the difference would not be of any great importance.

Choose the computer that you consider best value for money.

The Prescotts have a bigger L2 cache 1mb compared to the older version at 512k and improved architecture is about the sum of it .

This click here will explain it far better than i can.

almost all P4 you can get now are presoctt, it is not easy to find any P4 Northwood anymore.

The prescott also has 2 jags.

Hi All, Thanks for the info. I was getting confused. So it would appear that most computer providers aqre offering pentium 4 with 1mb cache which must be the prescottpec then. Thanks for clearing my understanding

Prescott is also a heavy consumer and has many off days !
