I was talking about the Prescott not the new ones, but I do know what you are talking about.
And I know that the p4 should do better, my other friend's old rig was p4 3.4ghz and it was matching and sometimes beating my old athlon 3400+, it really depended what day of the week it was. I think it was a few reasons he was running so slow, but the p4 was a big reason.
