Default Which processor?

Hey guys, which processor is better for gaming? An AMD Athlon XP 3000+ or an Intel Pentium 4 2.8GHz?

Neither will play any of todays games at decent settings, but the Athlon XP would probably beat the P4 in gaming.

No it doesn't beat it

Check this review
Athlon XP 3000+, AMD closing in on Intel - Benchmark results

P4 3.0GHz outperforms Athlon XP 3000+

I'm not sure about P4 2.8GHz, but I think it would beat XP 3000+

EDIT: Here is a another review comparing P4 3.0GHz vs Athlon XP 3200+
Athlon XP 3200+ Carries the Torch: OpenGL Gaming Performance

Since P4 3.0GHz outperforms 3200+, then there is no doubt that P4 2.8GHz perform better than 3000+

Nice try. Old reviews, new cores since then. Gaming is AMD's strong point, not synthetic benchmarks or cherry-picked games from Intel cronies.

The 3000+ will out-game the P4 2.8. The P4 will out-encode the 3000+. Pure and simple.

LOL ^^

Have you checked my second link ? the answer is no

Athlon XP 3200+ Carries the Torch: OpenGL Gaming Performance

P4 performs better in gaming than Athlon XP

I posted two links, the second link doesn't show synthetic benchmarks, but gaming benchmark

If you are talking about Athlon64 then maybe you are right. But he is talking about Athlon XP

P4 2.8GHz performs better than Athlon XP 3000+ in both gaming and encoding. Pure and simple

The second link shows gaming benchmark. Did you look at those benchmarks ? The answer is no

Who told you that I was not comparing them in gaming ?! LOL

I was comparing them in gaming

I posted two links, but there are some lazy people here who didn't look at the second link which shows P4 outperforming Athlon XP in gaming





Athlon XP 3200+ Carries the Torch: OpenGL Gaming Performance

.................................................. ..............

Next time before you spread lies and make silly reply like that, check all my links not just one link

I posted two reviews. The second review shows gaming benchmark.

Why is the OP interested? These are both ancient POS processors.

Nothing was said about socket A. Buying one would not be a smart move. The 64 3000+ beats the P4, hands down.
