Intel Desktop Pentium 4 Cedar Mill microprocessor family
Cedar Mill, the last single-core Pentium 4 core, was built on 0.065 micron technology. Micro-architecture of this core didn't change from previous Prescott core, therefore in all tests they perform the same as Pentium 4 Prescott CPUs. The main and only advantage of Cedar Mill processors over Prescott processors is their lower power consumption. For instance, Pentium 4 Cedar Mill 3.6 GHz has 30 Watt lower Thermal Design Power (TDP) than Pentium 4 Prescott 3.6 GHz.
To distinguish Cedar Mill CPUs from Prescott CPUs with the same features, Intel added 1 to their model numbers. Thus, Pentium 4 631, 641, 651 and 661 are 0.065 micron microprocessors, while Pentium 630, 640, 650 and 660 respectively are their 0.09 micron equivalents.
Pentium 4 Cedar Mill microprocessors were manufactured only in 775-land FC-LGA (socket 775) package.
