Pentium architectural history explored, part two

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.
