Intel's New Pentium 4 Processor

MPEG4 Encoding With Flask / DivX

You might remember the recent article about AMD's 760 chipset . I wrote that I consider the MPEG4-test the overall most important processor benchmark, because the scores in this benchmark make a really noticeable difference to the computer user. We are talking of hours of waiting that can be saved with a well performing processor.

I bet that Intel loves this benchmark, because Pentium 4 performs really well here. Even the slowest Pentium 4 is able to beat the competitor from Sunnyvale.

This result shows what Pentium 4 was designed for. It seems that Intel is taking more care of 3D-gamers and DVD-Rippers than of office workers. Pentium 4 doesn't want to be working class!
