"The whole Core family was a "revised Pentium III"."

Indeed, as far as I'm aware they essentially ditched the power-hungry Netburst (Pentium 4) architecture as a dead end and went back to the Pentium III architecture after they got better results using the latter as the basis for their mobile line.

(I remember reading magazine articles circa the mid-noughties suggesting the mobile Pentium as a serious alternative to the P4 if you were looking to build a more power-efficient desktop PC).
