Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz 800MHZ FSB Processor Review

Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz 800MHZ FSB Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: While the AthlonXP 3200+ gives the P4 3.0C a good run for its money, the P4 is slightly faster in the end as you'll see.

SysMark2002 is more of an extension of SysMark2001 rather then a whole new benchmark. The applications used during testing have been updated and most importantly for AMD users, the new SysMark2002 uses the Windows Media Encoder 7.1 which supports the AthlonXP's SSE instructions.

Internet Content Sysmarks Ranking
1. AthlonXP 3000+ 325
2. AthlonXP 3200+ 336
3. Pentium 4 3.0C 434
4. Pentium 4 3.0C Oc'ed (3.45 GHz) 467

Office Productivity

1 AthlonXP 3000+ 198
2. AthlonXP 3200+ 204
3. Pentium 4 3.0C 225
4. Pentium 4 3.0C Oc'ed (3.45 GHz) 271

Because SysMark2002 uses relatively new applications, the Pentium 4 3.0C simply owns the AthlonXP 3200+. The internet content score is extremely impressive!

Content Creation Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running top, Windows-based, 32-bit, content creation applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Me, or Windows XP.

Business Winstone 2002 is a system-level, application-based benchmark that measures a PC's overall performance when running today's top-selling Windows-based 32-bit applications on Windows 98, Windows 2000 (SP6 or later), Windows Me, or Windows XP. Business Winstone doesn't mimic what these packages do; it runs real applications through a series of scripted activities and uses the time a PC takes to complete those activities to produce its performance scores.

Winstone 2002 Benchmark Results
Content Content Score Ranking
1. AthlonXP 3000+ 47.1
2. AthlonXP 3200+ 49.8
3. Pentium 4 3.0C 48.2
4. Pentium 4 3.0C Oc'ed (3.45 GHz) 53.2

Business Winstone

1 AthlonXP 3000+ 34.6
2. AthlonXP 3200+ 33.2
3. Pentium 4 3.0C 34.3
4. Pentium 4 3.0C Oc'ed (3.45 GHz) 37.8

In Winstone 2002 things are much different and it seems like the P4 3.0C and AthlonXP 3200+ perform approximately the same.
