The Need for Speed: 3GHz And Counting

The Need for Speed: 3GHz And Counting news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

Hexus has taken a 2.26GHz P4 and has overclocked it to 3GHz.

I've found it somewhat eye-opening to see just how well the present Northwood P4 will scale. Those that lamented the release of the P4, one with a low work-per-cycle ethos, may now want to review their assumptions. Sure, the Pentium4 requires an additional 30 - 40% more clock-speed to match the Athlon XP's benchmarks, but when you can scale as well as it does, clock-speed becomes rather academic, we solely focus on the benchmarks results.
