[vox-tech] processor shootout: new intel, amd offerings

this is pretty cool...



what was released
intel just released a 2.8 GHz P4 with a 533MHz FSB.
amd just "released" the 2600+ athlon based on the thoroughbred core.

intel's chip is already on the market.  AMD's chip is not available.
the media has coined AMD's release as a "paper release".

reviewer said the new P4 runs pretty cool review said the new P4
operating temp was at 34C.   ... oh my god, becky!  that's cooler than
my athlon 1.4!

the new intel reached 3.15 reliably.

the new P4 outperformed the new athlon by 10% - 15% on each benchmark.
the new athlon is about equivalent to a 2.53 P4.  reviewer points out
that you don't want to skimp on the RAM for the P4.

pretty much what you'd expect.  the new P4 is $508, new athlon is $300.
major drag.  i'm not sure $200 is worth a 15% gain in oomph.  but if i
had a real job...   :)   when the 2600+ reaches the market, hopefully
the 2.8 P4 will drop a bit.
