PRESCOTT has big time problems with Power and Heat dissipation

Interesting post at X-bit Labs:


Last week Intel’s President Paul Otellini confirmed there had been issues with yields of Pentium 4 “Prescott” and Pentium M “Dothan” processors both made using 90nm strained silicon fabrication technologies. The Santa Clara, California-based company had to redesign Dothan, but could not afford pushing the new Pentium 4 chip at a later date. Though, the firm will deliver the 3.40GHz Prescott processor in March, a month after the formal launch. The later-than-expected availability of 3.40GHz processor may also negatively impact the launch dates for faster chips, as Intel’s 90nm products not only may have problems with yields, but also consume and dissipate too much power.
