Barton's Here: Athlon XP 3000+ vs. P4 3.06 GHz

Sysmark 2002

The Athlon XP 3000+ falls far behind the Pentium 4 3066 in some partial areas. One more thing about all AMD Athlon XP CPUs: compared to Intel's models, the AMD processors lag slightly behind because they lack enhancements. Plus, the integrated HyperThreading functions give the Pentiums a slight advantage. That said, the Athlon XP at 2500 MHz still takes first in office performance.
