Pentium 4 650/651 diffenences

Discussion in 'Intel' started by Craig Robison, Jun 20, 2006.

  1. Hi gang,
    I am new to the ng and I apologize if you have already been down this road.
    I am trying to figure out the differences between the Prescott (P4 650) and
    Cedar Mill (P4 651) generation CPU's. I am wanting to upgrade my system and
    the motherboard (an Asus P5WD2 Premium) appears to support either one. The
    prices are almost identical on these processors, so I am trying to figure
    out which one to get. I understand that the 651 is newer and runs cooler
    BUT what else...? Is there a down side to the 651?

    I believe that the 6x1's are also the version of Pentium 4 that had the
    "No Execute"-bit anti-worm protection feature in it.
