Astonishing results are revealed in compiling the Linux kernel: AMD Athlon XP 2300+ and Intel Pentium 4/3000 are neck and neck, at about 175 seconds. The Athlon 900 seems almost lamed, requiring about double the time.
Archiving: WinACE 2.04
Archiving is a very practical application. With the help of WinACE 2.04 Packers under Windows XP, a 178 MB WAV file is packed, reporting the time to complete the task. Again, the advantages from RDRAM can be seen: the Pentium 4/2600 (Intel 850 platform) beats the Pentium 4/3000 as well as the AMD Athlon XP 2300+. Still, the Athlon XP 2300+ is able to outperform the Pentium 4/3000 by about half a minute - a sensational result!
