Intel Pentium 4 1.5GHz - Intel Pentium 4 1.5GHz - Page 6

The Intel Pentium 4 processor is the seventh generation x86 microprocessor architecture from the Intel Corporation. Many months ago at the Intel Developer Forum 2000, Intel released what was known as the Willamette core, this turned out to be the code name of the Intel Pentium 4 processor that was to be released months after IDF. Sit back as Cameron lets us know if all your dollars should be put into this new processor!

Results - Sisoft Sandra 2001 CPU Benchmark

 

 

In our FPU first benchmark we see the Intel Pentium 4 beating both other processors. In ALU testing the Intel Pentium 4 is beaten by the AMD Athlon, then following the slower Intel Pentium 3.

 

Results - Sisoft Sandra 2001 Multimedia Benchmark

 

 

The Intel Pentium 4 is beaten again in this benchmark by the AMD Athlon, Intel's SSE2 technology is beaten by AMD's older 3DNow! technology.

 

Results - Sisoft Sandra 2001 Memory Benchmark

 

 

In this memory benchmark the Intel Pentium 4 increased memory bandwidth helps it take the lead from the AMD Athlon and Intel Pentium 3.
