Intel Beats AMD To 2 GHz

3D Mark 2001

This benchmark is more of a graphics card test than a processor benchmark, but Pentium 4 2 GHz is still able to beat the competition.

FlasK MPEG Video Encoding

The heavily P4-optimized iDCT of FlasK has always ensured that Athlon gets badly beaten by Pentium 4, even though AMD did what it could to optimize FlasK for Athlon as well. Pentium 4 2 GHz wins hands down.

CINEMA 4D Ray Tracing

CINEMA 4D used to be Athlon's big strength, but Pentium 4 2 GHz is able to beat the fastest Athlon processor for the first time in this benchmark.
