The Pentium 4 is a seventh-generation x86 architecture microprocessor produced by Intel and is their first all-new CPU design, called the NetBurst architecture, since the Pentium Pro of 1995.
The original Pentium 4, codenamed "Willamette", ran at 1.4 and 1.5 GHz and was released in November 2000 on the Socket 423 platform, and later Socket 478 from 1.5GHz to 2GHz.

 Intel® Pentium® III Processor Thermal Management
When building quality systems using the boxed Pentium III processor, it is imperative that you carefully consider the thermal management of the system and verify the system design with thermal testing.
Boxed Pentium® III processors are shipped with a high-quality fan heatsink, which can effectively transfer processor heat to the system air.
For boxed Pentium® III processors in the S.E.C.C.2 form factor, the testing point is at the center of the heatsink base on the top of the processor near to the processor marking area (see Figure 1).

 X-bit labs - Articles - Pentium III-S 1.13GHz (Tualatin) Review
That's why Pentium III processors were initially bundled with 512KB L2 cache, which was situated in the external SRAM microchips and worked at half the CPU clock frequency.
Pentium III line was a real success, and a shift to the new manufacturing technology could have given Intel a chance to go on increasing the clock frequencies, as well as to add several millions of transistors to the core.
The main drawback of all the Pentium III CPUs, which aggravates as their clocking grows, is the insufficient processor bus bandwidth.

 All Pentium III Models | Hardware Secrets
As regards their mechanical design, there are two models of Pentium III, that is, this processor can be found with two different types of connector, and the motherboard has to match the type of connection used by the processor.
The first models of Pentium III to come onto the market were cartridge-mounted, resembling the design used for the Pentium II, known as SECC-2.
Models of Pentium III up to 600 MHz utilize a 512 KB cache memory circuit operating at half the processor's clock frequency - for instance, in a Pentium III-600, the L2 cache is accessed at 300 MHz.

The Pentium III is similar to the Pentium II, but adds some new instructions, and a couple new features.
It appears that Intel transitioned from.25 to.18 on the Pentium III 600B processor, and the Pentium III 533B is all.18 micron.
This assumption is based on the fact that Pentium III 600B's were manufactured at 1.6 and 2.05 volts, while Pentium III 533B's were manufactured at 1.6 volts only, according to this page at Intel's site.

 Comparison of Athlon, Pentium III, Celeron, K6, M2 CPU's
Like the Pentium II and Pentium III, the Athlon is mounted in a module with separate SRAM chips for the L2 cache, and it has a special bus that connects the processor to the L2 cache chips.
By contrast, the Pentium III has a larger 512K cache, but it is off-chip and thus runs at one-half of the processor speed.
Unlike Pentium II and Pentium III, the K6-2 does not have a separate interface for the L2 cache, so the cache speed is limited to 100 MHz and must share the bus bandwidth with memory and I/O traffic.
