P4 a Tags: CPUs Last response: August 20, 2002 6:38 AM in CPUs Share csparks August 19, 2002 9:31:26 PM I have seen several ads that have an "a" next to the cpu speed i.e. P4 2.0a. What does the "a" mean??? More about : question chuck232 August 19, 2002 10:19:33 PM 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. <i>Past mistakes may make you look stupid, but avoiding future ones will make you look smart!</i> BuddyAtBzboyz August 20, 2002 6:38:09 AM By the way when you come across the 'b' after the p4 it means its on the 133 quad pumped fsb so 533.
