Goodbye Pentium 4?

Intel has announced that Tejas and Jayhawk, versions of the Pentium 4 designed to push the clock speeds of the chip ever higher, have been shelved. It seems that the power consumption of the new chips would simply have been too insane for them to be a viable option, and instead the company will move to a dual-core architecture, which will give better performanced without the power requirements of a small house.
