Do you have more info on that? Try:

     grep 'model name' /proc/cpuinfo

The original Pentium 4 (eg "Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz") had
hyperthreading which was actually pretty pathetic for parallelism.

The Core 2 Duos (eg "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU     T9600  @ 2.80GHz")
are far superior.
