Interestingly enough, a P4 with HT outperforms a Pentium D of the same speed in some gaming benchmarks. If you're a serious gamer, get AMD. If you can't do that, get tha p4 6xx series. The Pentium D is a mediocere gaming processor.

Of course, AMD has always been better in gaming.

Because the vast majority of the games do not support SMP. The Pentium D will crush the P4 when the games have SMP support.

ymmetric Multiprocessing, or SMP, is a multiprocessor computer architecture where two or more identical processors are connected to a single shared main memory. Most common multiprocessor systems today use an SMP architecture.
From Wikipedia.

Just Clarifying myself

This is true. However, with today's games, which do not embrace SMP, the Penitum D is a mediocere performer.
