Intel Beats AMD To 2 GHz

Benchmark Results

BAPCo Sysmark 2001

BAPCo's productivity benchmark shows Pentium 4 2 GHz as the clear performance leader.

Pentium 4 used to perform better than Athlon in this sub-benchmark in previous tests already, so that it doesn't surprise anyone that Pentium 4 2 GHz is winning this test hands down.

The office performance part of Sysmark2001 used to be Athlon's stronghold, but once Pentium 4 runs at 2 GHz it is winning this contest as well.
