Re: Re: Centrino comparison to P4?Agreed the Centrino monicker is Intel marketing hype, it is indeed a Pentium M, but it is not to be confused with a Pentium 4 M.
The Pentium M is built from the ground up as a mobile CPU, the Pentium 4M was a reworked desktop CPU.
From PC Magazine:
...a 1.4-GHz Pentium M unit easily beat out a 2.4-GHz P4-M system on our Business Winstone and Multimedia Content Creation Winstone tests. On Business Winstone, the Acer unit (the fastest of these Pentium M portables) scored 31.9, a 38 percent increase over the 2.4-GHz P4-M's score of 23.2.
That is what I've been reading elsewhere, as well. The Pentium M, which is currently available in clocks from 1.3g to 1.7g, whoops up on the P4Ms. For a mobile CPU, it rocks.
