wait, they are making PENTIUM cpu's agian?????
Just like the Athlon for AMD, the pentium name has become their "budget" model and has nothing to do with netburst, though there were some pentium netbursts for socket 775 when it first came out including a dual core (called "pentium D"). But the newer (2007) "pentium dual cores" are based on the core 2 architecture.
There is even a "pentium" for their new socket 1156 (Pentium G6950), and it is based on the core i architecture. Just like AMD's new Athlons are based on the phenom II architecture but have some things removed for the budget crowd.
