AMD Launches Athlon Processor at 1300 and 1333 MHz

Video Processing

Video2000 is doesn't make much of a difference between the five processors and Pentium 4 wins with a tiny edge.

The iDCT-part (required for the decoding of the MPEG2-stream) of the MPEG4-encoding software FlasK is optimized for Athlon as well as Pentium 4 and here you can see how powerful Pentium 4 can be. Even the Athlon 1600 of the Power Box is unable to beat Pentium 4 1.5 GHz.
