Again we get a similar picture painted here, the Pentium 4 still isn't cutting it in today's benchmarks.

Another example of where a higher clocked Pentium 4 could come in handy is in this MedMCAD test where the Pentium 4 at 1.5GHz has the slight advantage and could definitely take a clear lead if clocked even higher. Unfortunately for Intel, it seems as if AMD will always be hovering around the same clock frequency as the Pentium 4, at least for next year, with an Athlon.

    10 years after first post. 15 years since article.

    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.

    this 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. Reply

    On the contrary I think this was most interesting ... With much higher memory bandwith, sadly clock speeds were not as impressive in early released models. Reply

    Yeaa 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.
