Intel Pentium 4 1.7 GHz: More Power For Less Money

Mercedes Benz Truck Racing

This game is not as old as Quake 3 or MDK2, but also not exactly brand-new. The scores are distributed quite fairly. Athlon 1333 is pretty much on par with Intel's new Pentium 4 1.7 GHz.

At 1024x768x32 the picture doesn't change. The top-performers of the two processor makers score identical results.


The beautiful 3Dmark2001 may be out for a short while already, but for processor comparisons the previous model will do just fine. We used the default benchmark run.

Pentium 4 1.7 GHz is able to beat Athlon 1333, though not by much, while Pentium 4 1.5 GHz lags a bit behind Athlon 1200.


It's always interesting to see how processors perform in this benchmark, which is mainly meant to test video hardware.

Pentium 4 1.7 GHz is scoring the best result here, which might be some proof for Intel's claim that Pentium 4 is an excellent processor for video applications.
