Yes, I keep saying I have a vp6 motherboard based system, with two 1.0GHz p3's. Its much faster than any of my friends single chip systems, even those nice p4's. The p4's arch. slows the chip down, all those deep/big pipes.
If you were to compare theoretically:
A p3 and p4 running both at 1.0GHz, the p3 would run about 20% faster. Its bandwidth pipes aren't as complex, those complex pipes take more time to push information through..... That's why I would rather use a dual p3 or dual p3 Tualatin anytime over a p4.
Ps- My p3s are the ones that support a 133mhz bus.
