I currently have a AMD Zacate dual-core clocked at 1.4 GHz with integrated graphics, but no expansion whatsoever. I believe that the processor is bottlenecking the GPU even if the GPU is weak.

Would a NorthWood P4 with a discrete graphics perform better? The cache amount is the same. I'm not planning to overclock but I will if i have to, and it itself is a whole new system.

Current Setup

AMD E1-1200 1.4 GHz idles at 900 MHz with Radeon 6710 graphics

450 GB SATA HDD at 7200 RPM with windows 8 64 bit

4 Gb RAM at 1066 MHz

No expansion slots...

your current APU is actually better than a pentium 4 if you go by these passmark scores.


also note the pentium 4 is only a single core processor.

These benchmarks are based on popularity and value worth. I'm looking for comparison benchmarks based on overall performance.

A P4 NorthWood has Hyper Threading, meaning that it would act like a dual core right?

Those benchmarks are based on processor performance, they are just made more reliable by more people submitting results but the siflte also uses them to work out performance to value, the p4 has worse performance, hyper threading does not work the same as a dual core it will only give a Max of 30% performance improvement.
