Jon Stokes at Ars Technica has finished the second half of his architectural history of the Pentium processors. This time out, he's focusing on the Pentium 4 and Pentium M, which makes for some intriguing contrasts. Good reading.
Jon says he thinks Prescott is "Intel's last major version the Pentium 4's Netburst architecture" and predicts the Pentium M will become the foundation for future Intel consumer processors. I thought that was what was happening back when the Tejas project was cancelled, but later rumors seem to be conflicting. Now, I'm not sure what to think.
