    I gotta tell ya, that finding the information was a lot easier than you may have thought. Just by entering “compare gallatin and prescott processors” in Google’s Search, revealed a multitude of sites with similar info. But none-the-less, below is a pretty good comparison between the Newer Prescott (Intel 3.73GHz) and the Gallatin (Intel 3.46GHz) processors. Google for the definitions of any terms you may not be familiar with and you might want to do a visual core comparision as well.

    Some of the noticeable differences between the two was; the lack of L3 Cache on the newer Prescott however they doubled the L1 Cache on it, and notice the increase in HEAT! In fact, in looking up info for you the Prescott was the toastiest x86 Processor.

    Manufacturing Process: 90nm
