It means it is slightly slower than the current P4 of the same clock speed,
has slightly more L2 cache, runs like 20% hotter, and does nothing new.

From what I have read it means that Intel is going to get those who buy one
help pay for their research and development.

There is a slight chance it may have 64 bit extensions, though as of
now, no one knows.

It may have them, but it is generally accepted that they will never be
functional.

Intel's Tejas chip (which should follow Prescott) is rumored to actually
have 64-bit support. Intel's Xeon server line is rumored to be getting
them with the Prescott style Xeon chips, however I don't see how Intel can
do that, as having a 64-bit Xeon with a competitor's instruction set would
indicate weakness in the Itanium, but we'll see.

It makes sense what G smith said as well. As the newer lower clocked
prescotts will be equal (maybe less in some cases) to the previous core,
it will allow for higher clockspeeds. I just wonder what kind of chip
Intel coul dmake if they didn't bother with all this clockspeed mumbo
jumbo. Well I guess it would probably look a lot like a pentium M.

Nothing with that name can be good. We've got a politician here in
England with the same name who's a complete idiot and a bloody
socialist to boot.

That's always true. It's the people who buy first that bear most of the
cost.
