If almost everything has to be bought new anyway, eg if you are using a Pentium III system If you want to switch to something new, the Athlon XP 2000+ is currently particularly recommendable. But even the somewhat slower Pentium 4 models are all in all not that bad in terms of their price-performance ratio.

Conclusion

The newest processors may be the fastest. In terms of price, however, they also set new standards or are currently not even available. Even if our benchmarks only cover a small part of the existing applications, it clearly shows that the Athlon processors get along a little better with our games than with our office applications, some of which can shine through the support of the P4 instructions SSE2. When comparing the game and office ratings, there is a gradient of 5 percent. The Pentium 4, on the other hand, can be described as top everywhere and also available up to the highest clock rates. The only Athlon XP that is currently available in large numbers in retail stores has the model name 2200+ and is a good 30 percent slower than the currently fastest Intel processor. Hopefully the faster models won't be delayed any further.
