Pentium 4/2200 vs. Athlon XP 2000+

OpenGL Performance: Quake 3 Arena

In both of the Quake 3 Arena time-demo runs, the Pentium 4/2200 is ahead of the AMD Athlon XP 2000+. The NV15 demos show a similar picture: Pentium 4 leads in the charts. With the introduction of the Northwood core, the distance between the P4 and the Athlon XP has increased, especially in lower resolutions that put a greater load on the CPU.
