The Die Has Been Cast: Pentium 4/2533 vs. Athlon XP 2100+

Archiving: WinACE 2.11

Archiving is a very practical application. WinACE 2.11 was used under Windows XP to archive a 178 MB WAV file while the clock was running. The P4/2533 clearly wins over the Athlon XP 2100+. In this test, the fast memory clock of 533 MHz (grey bars) has a particularly noticeable effect. All chips that are not yet available on the market are marked with grey bars.
