Does anyone know if I bought a Pentium M 1.7Ghz (400fsb) Dothan (2MB cache) would it be faster than a Pentium 4 3.0ghz prescott?
I don't believe what some people say about, "ohh, a pentium m is twice as fast as its Mhz rating because of its 2mb of cache".... i've heard it a million times from everybody but
I don't believe this because of 1) doubling the prescott's cache didn't help so much as to do anything anywhere near doubling the performance. 2) i read the pentium-3 based architecture, shortened pipeline etc. is responsible for the pentium m's speed.
