P4 a

I have seen several ads that have an "a" next to the cpu speed i.e. P4 2.0a.
What does the "a" mean???

  1. It means it's a Northwood based on the .13u process and 512K L2 cache. It's a much better o/cer than the non *A* P4, and it's also faster.

  2. By the way when you come across the 'b' after the p4 it means its on the 133 quad pumped fsb so 533.
