Is this a Northwood?

I've recently have been so burnt (no pun intended) by the purchase of a 3.2 gig Prescott chip that I am now accepting defeat and replacing it with a Northwood chip. However, I'm not sure how to ascertain a Northwood. I saw an ad for a 3.2 gig P4 with 512k cache with this model number:


Does anyone know if this is a Northwood chip? Please let me know, as I'm really looking forward to smashing up the Prescott with a hammer. Thanks.

    All Prescott Chips have 1Mb. NW has 512Kb. So yes, it's a northwood. (assuming they're being truthful about that)
