How many address pins are on the Pentium 4?

  1. Could anyone tell me where I could find a diagram, chart or clear information that tells me exactly how many address pins are on the Pentium 4 processor?

    I'm looking at a chart in Irv Englander's The Arch of Comp. HW and Systems SW book, and it shows that the Pentium 4's addressing capability dropped down to 32-bits (from 36-bits, which was the P6 family's addressing capability).

    It doesn't make sense to me that the newer Pentium 4 would drop the number of address pins.

    Thanks

    I received an error trying to download the document myself, but your quote helped.
