Intel Pentium 4 660: specs and benchmarks
This is Prescott architecture desktop processor primarily aimed at office systems. It has 1 core and 1 thread, and is based on 90 nm manufacturing technology, with a maximum frequency of 3600 MHz and a locked multiplier.
Compatibility-wise, this is PLGA775, PPGA775 processor with a TDP of 115 Watt.
It provides poor benchmark performance at 2.65 percent of a leader's which is AMD EPYC 7763.
Of Pentium 4 660 processor market type (desktop or notebook), architecture, sales start time and pricing.
Basic microprocessor parameters such as number of cores, number of threads, base frequency and turbo boost clock, lithography, cache size and multiplier lock state. These parameters can generally indicate CPU performance, but to be more precise you have to review its test results.
Information on Pentium 4 660 compatibility with other computer components and devices: motherboard (look for socket type), power supply unit (look for power consumption) etc. Useful when planning a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. Note that power consumption of some processors can well exceed their nominal TDP, even without overclocking. Some can even double their declared thermals given that the motherboard allows to tune the CPU power parameters.
