Compared to the current generation with 90nm “Prescott” core, the new 65nm “Cedar Mill” will drop from 95 to 86 watts. A qualification sample of a 65 nm Pentium 4 653 chip which consumes about 10 percent less power than its preceding chip generation. The TDP rating for Cedar Mill chips will be 86 watts, down from 95 watts for the Prescott core with 2 MByte L2 cache. The 86 watt power envelope applies to the Pentium 4 600-series ranging in a clock speed from 3.0 to 3.6 GHz.
