Intel Pentium 4 2.66GHz Processor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: The Northwood core has a great reputation for its overclockability, even going so far as to pull back many enthusiasts from the loving clutches of AMD.

Benchmarks: Super PI, POVRay

SuperPI Source: SuperPI

SuperPI calculates the number PI to 1 Million digits in this raw number crunching benchmark. The benchmark is fairly diverse and allows the user to change the number of digits of PI that can be calculated from 16 Thousand to 32 Million. The benchmark, which uses 19 iterations in the test, is set 1 Million digits.

Lower numbers denote faster calculation times (seconds), and hence, better performance.

Super PI (1 Million digits) Benchmark Results (Lower is better)
Processor Seconds Ranking
1. XP 2700+ (2.16 GHz) 51
2. P4 2.4 GHz 76
3. P4 2.8 GHz 56
4. P4 2.66 GHz 57
5. P4 3.26 GHz 50

SuperPi tests the raw FPU power of the processor and that's why AMD always performs well here.

POVRay Source: POVRay.org

The Persistence of Vision Ray Tracer (POV-Ray) is an all round excellent package, but there are two things that particularly make it stand out above the rest of the crowd. Firstly, it's free, and secondly, the source is distributed so you can compile it on virtually any platform.

Lower numbers denote faster calculation times (seconds), and hence, better performance.

POVRay Benchmark Results (lower is better)
Processor Seconds Ranking
1. XP 2700+ (2.16 GHz) 148
2. P4 2.4 GHz 249
3. P4 2.8 GHz 197
4. P4 2.66 GHz 208
5. P4 3.26 GHz 172

POVRay is another FPU based benchmark and here the AthlonXP beats the P4's handily.
