Pentium IV -- fan noise too lould?

Discussion in 'Gateway' started by Gordon McLean, Jr., May 10, 2004.

  1. As I sit here listening to the fan roar in my 2.2 GHz Celeron-based Gateway
    laptop, I spot the following interesting article on the problem of power
    consumption in Pentium IV's, not to mention cache size. Is Intel abandoning
    the P IV design prematurely, preferring Pentium-M-style instead for the
    future? Was the P IV (GHz ueber alles) architecture a mistake?

  2. The answer is, yes. Intel will phase out all P4 mobile CPUs in favor of the
    Pentium-M, and yes, heat is a major issue with the P4s in notebook designs.
