Single P4-HT or Dual P3 ?

Just wondering if anyone has info on whether a system with a new 3.6Ghz Pentium 4 with Hyperthreading will outperform a system with dual processor Pentium 3 1.4Ghz? Lets suppose the system will be performing video compression software.
Have any benchmarks been performed in this area?

  1. it 3.06 not 3.6.

    P4 will be faster if not close to twice as fast.

    Just next to the lab and the bunker you will find the marketing departement.
  2. Yep the P4 would own the P3 by a wide margin.
