Intel Pentium 4 1.4GHz & 1.5GHzby Anand Lal Shimpi on November 20, 2000 12:54 AM EST

Again, the Athlon at 1.2GHz holds a 10% lead over the Pentium 4 at 1.5GHz. Even on a PC133 platform, the 1.2GHz Athlon ends up 2% faster than the Pentium 4.
UnrealTournament is a very texture intensive game, meaning that these a considerable amount of stress on memory bandwidth which the AMD 760 DDR platform definitely has. At the same time there is a stress on low latency memory performance, which the AMD 760 platform has, but which the Pentium 4 also has. Remember that the Athlon can do more in a single clock than the Pentium 4, making the 300MHz difference in clock speed between the Pentium 4 and the Athlon compared here mean very little.
Under Expendable, a very memory performance dependent test, the Pentium 4 suffers considerably, falling to the bottom of our performance charts. Even a high clock speed wouldn't help the Pentium 4 here, it seems like there are some situations in which the Pentium 4 just isn't a high performer.

Seriously how come no one posted on these old articles? It was an interesting read on a bit of history. :)

Maybe because there wasn't a comment section back then? /sarcasim

Interesting piece of history. What ever happened to AMD's lead... :(.
For 10 year in the future reader.
I knew AMD would take the performance lead.

Anonymous_87 - Wednesday, January 4, 2017 - linkthis was the worst CPU by intel ever, much like Phenom launch in 2007, yet this is kind towards intel. a contrast to the phenom review. Its sad the bias.
Dr AB - Saturday, May 9, 2020 - linkOn the contrary I think this was most interesting ... With much higher memory bandwith, sadly clock speeds were not as impressive in early released models.
AndrzejKalach - Friday, February 3, 2017 - linkYeaa this history is awesome. AMD INTEL this companies needs to fight every time in the market.
Good old intels CPUs! That is what i want.
Check my blog: https://proudmedia.eu - In polish but this site is very good like this awesome post!
rosek7302 - Friday, February 3, 2017 - linkhi the 50% higher clock speed very good
