Architectural difference between Pentium 4 and Pentium M (core duo/solo)

Hi all,

The Pentium 4 has a deep 20-stage pipeline, I'm wondering if the Pentium M, Core Duo/Solo also have the same architecture?


Thank you.

Pentium M and core duo/solo have much shorter pipelines than the 64-bit P4. Don't ask me how this relates to threading.

Tim,

I'm wondering if the Pentium M processors are based on the NetBurst architecture?

Thank you.

Pentium M supports the entire original P4 instruction set, so I suppose you could say yes.
