On tomshardware it shows charts that its better than AMD athlon xp processor.
Dont get Athlon 64 because u cant run any program on it yet.
first, Athlon XP's are far cheaper than Pentium 4's of equivalent speed. they are last generation's CPU's anyway. so are Northwood's. Athlon 64's have completely overrun them
and the prescott is no match for Athlon 64's either. in gaming, single core Athlon 64's overrun them. in multimedia, the X2's, especially the 4800+ take them to school.
and what do you mean you can't run any programs on them yet? you can run MORE programs on them. they haven't just ditched 32-bit
