Again we used the following command line for all tests and the pawns. Overclocked performance 18 x , 2GHz Lets see how a small bus overclock on the i helps things out. The Athlon XP manages to pull away from the P4 2. Before we get started, lets take a look at the test rig: Let’s investigate how we fare in practical benchmarks. Excellent scores too from the new version of Sandra.

Intel i850 Drivers???

We’ll run the benchmark modes in fastest and quality. Overall, good stock performance where we expected it. Distributed Computing – General. The new drivers help a lot in this case. We’re somewhat mystified by the Athlon XP’s relatively poor showing in this benchmark, it seems to contradict our other benchmarks.

Fitted with an all-in-one monoblock which matches the Gigabyte Aorus aesthetic. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.

Intel’s NetBurst Architecture – The Pentium 4’s innards get a name

We’ll start off with 3DMarka synthetic benchmark from the folk over at Madonion. We know that many of you are keen to ‘rip’ your personal CD collection onto your hard drive to listen to in MP3 format. Both Intel and AMD have still to play their inte cards.

Nasgul, the Xp install did work fine without the drivers, but you are absolutely dead-on right about the IAC! Starting at the top we’ve got the ATX connector flush along the top left edge and the auxiliary ATX connector at right angles to that in the top right. Next, the P4 result. First, the P3 binary result.

There are a few niggles on the board like the AC’97 audio stuttering and the Mhz issues, but overall I’m very impressed with my 2nd look at an i solution. The P4, at its native 2. This design is vastly superior to anything Intel has come up with. Tablets Laptops and Netbooks Phones. I had the choice of GlacialTech or the stock Intel cooler and both are simple to install.

Three Kings is the DVD of choice, its mixture of action and dialogue make it an excellent benchmarking test. The smaller die allows smaller transistors, which in turn produce less heat. For argument’s sake, if we say that the Athlon XP and P4 can push an instruction through 4 stages of their respective pipelines per clock cycle, it would take the P4 twice as long to process the same number of instructions as the Athlon XP due to its double-length pipelineor would need to be at clocked at twice the basic clock speed as the Athlon XP.

However, just out of curiosity, we ran the numbers to see if Mhz was a win for the P4.

Intel DGB PCSTATS Review – i Chipset

That is how we today have a x86 processor capable of 2. The extra cache helps keep the processor saturated with data, and should help in ensuring that the massive bandwidth on offer is effectively utilised by the CPU. Let’s now focus on memory bandwidth, something that is crucial in keeping the CPU fed with data.


It consists of a series of tests that represent common tasks in home and office programs.

Lets take a look at what they bring to the table. Let’s see if this still holds true. Twice the maximum bandwidth of the PCI bus. It’s a shame that software needs to be specifically optimised for the platform but that’s necessary in this case. I would have prefered it flush with the right edge in a vertical orientation since the extra cable twist is an annoyance.

The P3 and Athlon processors have a 10 stage pipeline, the P4 on the other hand is blessed with an extra-deep 20 stage pipeline. Let’s investigate how we fare in practical benchmarks. teham

As you can no doubt gather, branch mis-prediction is especially costly in a deep pipeline as it takes 20 clock cycles to recover from any error.
