AMD Launches Athlon Processor at 1300 and 1333 MHz

Synthetic Benchmark Sandra 2001

I included these numbers for the overclocking freaks amongst you, who love Sandra2001 so much. The CPU performance part shows Athlon beating Pentium 4, but I will refrain from commenting on the meaningfulness of these results in real life.

The above-said is also valid for those numbers. Athlon scores higher than Pentium 4 in the multi media sub-benchmark. Don't ask me what that means though.

The memory benchmarks demonstrates the powerful dual-channel RDRAM memory subsystem of Pentium 4. Athlon on AMD760 with DDR-SDRAM gets beaten badly. Once more the question remains what those numbers really tell us though.

    I've had mine for 10 years now and it still runs great! If you're a traveler to the future and are wondering which chip to get in the year 2001, this one is hard to beat.
