Athlon 64 vs. pentium 4
Athlon 64 3200 Review — Forgotten CPU? – Amdmb.com. The Athlon 64 3200 basically is one fast machine. In this review, it was about 15% faster than a Pentium 3.2 GHz and 20% faster than an Athlon XP 3200+ in gaming. And, 25% faster than the Athlon XP 3200+
On synthetic benchmarks, the Pentium is much faster in memory access, but area about the samein CPU (amazing since the underlying clock rate of the Athlon 3200+ is actually 2.0 GHz).
