With the variety in names and so-called types of Pentium processors over the years, it can be a little bit confusing knowing the differences between them all. With that in mind, today’s SuperUser Q&A post has some answers to a curious reader’s question about numbered and non-numbered Pentium processors.
What this response missed is the new Pentium CPU and chipset being sold in modern netbooks. This 64-bit processor is actually a quad-core Atom CPU, which is Intel's netbook and tablet processor.
So the modern-day Quad Core Pentium is just an Atom with a new name.
