I have an AXP 2500+M @ 2400mhz on an A7N8X. What A64 is about the same speed. I am guessing about 3200+ - 3400+. I only saw 1 head to head with only the AXP 3200+ and A64 3200+. Can someone point me to another benchmark.
That is really not a fair comparison but with gamming in mind, 2.4ghz barton is about on par with the a64 3000 or 3200 but that is still very weak for mostly the a64 will smoke the barton in everything except some gamming where really the AGP is the determining factor.

I have 2 Mobile XP2500+'s, one does 2.6GHz, one does 2.4GHz. I honestly don't feel they compare well to an A64, even in gaming. No doubt they were very good buys for the money, but I'd still think the A64 3000+ > AXP @ 2.6GHz. At 2.2GHz (XP3200+) the XP's aren't any better off than a 2.8C Pentium 4. SO I'd say at 2.4GHz, maybe on average it's about a P4 3.0C or A64 2800+ for games. Of course that will all vary by aplication, but I was thinking games as a whole. But at half the cost or less, that isn't too shabby at all.
I'd like to see how a AXP @2.4GHz, A64 3000+, and P4 3.2GHz and a A64 3800+ would compare on a GF6800U or X800XT. Just how bad would each CPU hold those cards back in some games. And which of the 3 CPU's would do the best.

Yeah, I agree. The 3800+ was put in to see just what the cards could do and just how much the other 3 cpu's held them back.
This little review compares the mobile XP at speeds that should be just above the 12*200 scores; close enough for comparison. I would have loved to see a few more CPU's in there and some more game tests and settings, but still gives a picture of what the barton can do at those speeds. Pretty close to P4 3.0GHz in gaming.
The P4 did way better than I would have expected. Few reviewers have been able to get a P4 to beat the A64 with the same Pr rating. I suspect that the P4 was a personal system. It seems that the other two lack the type of tweaking that is evident in the P4.
