or do you just ignore it and look at the GHz, FSB, cache still?
What's the new numbering method? Is at as cool/messed up as AMD's PR ratings?
ex: Pentium M 725 = 1.6Ghz Pentium M, 400MHz FSB, 2MB L2 cache
Pentium 4 540 = 3.2Ghz Presott, HT, 800Mhz FSB, 1MB L2 cache
So unless you memorize what 725 & 540 mean, you have to look it up or just look at the details that they've been using forever.
At first, I didn't like it. However, I really really really like them now. So much easier to say "hey, hand me a 550" instead of "give me a socket 775 prescott 3.4GHz".
Plus things are more organized in my POS now
