In a mag i bought recently it tested the FX 55, 3.46ghz P4, 3.40ghz P4, here is the results.

NOTE: FX 55 - $1059 USD
P4 3.46ghz EE LGA 775- $1065 USD
P4 3.40ghz EE LGA 775- $989 USD

(according to Newegg)

Benchmark 1 - Multimedia Content Creation 2004
FX 55 - 39.2
3.46ghz - 33.6
3.40 - 33.5

Benchmark 2 - Business Winstone 2004
FX 55 - 29.5
3.46ghz - 25.4
3.40ghz - 24.9

Benchmark 3 - Memory Bandwidth
FX 55 - 5522MB/S
3.46ghz - 4692MB/S
3.40ghz - 4526MB/S

Benchmark 4 - Pifast (10 Million Places)
FX 55 - 49.22 sec
3.46ghz - 56.47 sec
3.40ghz - 63.12 sec

Benchmark 5 - 3DMARK 01 SE
FX 55 - 24002
3.46ghz - 22170
3.40ghz - 21122

Benchmark 6 - Doom 3
FX 55 - 92 fps
3.46ghz - 89.2 fps
3.40ghz - 86.6 fps

All systems used same components except Mobo and CPU. The AMD won 6/6 test.

And you wonder why Intel has 85% of the CPU market.

in those tests Deadweight posted, the 3500+ didnt do too well against the P4 3.46 except in the memory bandwidth, UT2003, Wolfenstein, PI, etc. But comparing the 3500+ to the 3.46ghz isnt that correct because the 3.46ghz price wise is more comparible to the FX-55 which slogs it in all tests.

Yeah really, dont foget the 3.46 has 2mb L3 cache, while the 3500 has only 640kb L2 Cache. That helps ALOT. I would just get a FX-55 for the amount of the 3.46. Again, AMD64 do not have FSB!

Aren't the Extreme Edition Pentium 4s incredibly expensive too? I think I saw a 3.4 or 3.6 retailing for nearly a thousand dollars canadian.

So the winner is obviously the Pentium in this case, but as mentioned above, the FX-55 will take it to school for about the same price, even in the majority of Intel favoured applications.
