AMD 64 vs Pentium 4 Processors: AMD Athlon 64 and Athlon 64 FX vs. Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition CPU


  • AMD Athlon 64 Processor:

    Features and Benefits:
  • AMD64 technology for simultaneous high performance 32- and 64-bit computing
  • Enhanced Virus Protection when enabled by Windows XP SP2 is designed to prevent the spread of certain viruses, like MSBlaster and Slammer.
  • 128-bit integrated DDR memory controller – up to 6.4GB/sec memory bandwidth for breakthrough performance and extraordinary cinematic computing experiences
  • HyperTransport technology enabling increased bandwidth and reduced I/O bottlenecks for increased system performance and better multitasking
  • High performance doesn’t have to mean lots of heat and noise. AMD Athlon 64 desktop processors feature innovative Cool'n'Quiet technology that enables systems to run quieter, providing performance on demand.

    "Pentium 4 Extreme Edition vs Athlon 64 FX: Well, the battle of the most powerful desktop processors from both leading CPU makers reveals no winners. We can't admit that the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition wins at the difference of 1.3%, especially because the P4 EE wins in half of the tests, while the A64 FX takes the crown in the other half. Such battle makes me smile again. The companies have been fighting for years and none of them can take the lead, in spite of new architectures, hyper-threading, 64bit instructions etc...."

    "Battling Brothers - Celeron Vs. Pentium 4: All hail the Pentium 4! With its high clock speeds, a wide selection of compatible platforms and a dearth of rival AMD models, Intel has successfully defended its title as the champion in the processor business. Now the low-cost Celeron model has joined the party in the lower-clock-speed segment (up to 1.8 GHz), in order to beat out AMD's models with low prices and high clock speeds. .." Tomshardware.com

    "Celeron Vs. Pentium III: ...AMD was able to sell huge amounts of K6, K6-2 and K6-III processors, even though they had never been a threat to Intel's high performance products. The sales volumes of low end processors cannot be justified by their great performance, but by the fact that these chips provide enough performance for non-3D applications like word processing, spread sheets, presentations, webdesign and similar software. ..."
