'Of course, chess!', It shoots through your head, if you look back over the last few months, almost the entire last year, taking into account the competition between AMD and Intel. Step by step and often alternating like a textbook, both companies presented their latest achievements. The tactic? Rather conventional: clock speed increase. The result? The game is still running! After AMD was able to turn the rather hopeless positional play into a head-to-head race with the XP2800 + on October 1st, 2002, it is now White's turn again, even if the consequences of this step may be relevantare not really foreseeable yet, a promising position could arise for the future. Intel uses: Hyper-Threading.
We dare to analyze the game and take the used figure, the Pentium 4 3.06GHz with Hyper-Threading Technology, under the microscope. What is special about this processor? Where are his strengths and how will the game develop in the future? We hope to be able to find answers to these questions in the context of our articles, three in number.
Since Intel's Hyper-Threading is not entirely without, we decided to do so to publish a total of three consecutive articles on this topic. For a full understanding, read the following articles in sequence.
- What is Hyper-Threading? The Basics
- Intel Pentium 4 3066 MHz in the test (This article) HyperThreading support for the desktop
- Intel Pentium 4 in the Hyperthreading Special Benchmarks beyond pure theory
Since it is possible that existing knowledge from older processor tests will be used in this article, it is by no means wrong for those who want to know a little 'more' to take a look at our older reports .
- (Rating) Celeron with 2.0 GHz in the test - does a Pentium 4 competitor overclock to 3.0 GHz? (Athlon 1600+ to 1700+, Pentium 4 2.53 up to 2.8 GHz)
- (Rating) The Athlon XP 2700+ and 2800+ in the test - back to the top thanks to FSB166? (Athlon 2200+ to 2800+, Pentium 4 2.4 to 2.8 GHz)
- (Rating) The next step in the Athlon evolution - Athlon XP 2400+ and 2600+ i m test (Athlon 2200+ to 2600+, Pentium 4 2.4 to 2.8 GHz)
- (Rating) At full throttle towards 3 GHz - Intel Pentium 4 with 2nd , 8 GHz in the test (Athlon 'C' 1.4 GHz, Athlon XP 1600+ to 2200+, Pentium 4 1.8 to 2.8GHz)
- Pentium 4 with FSB 533 MHz in the test - Intel sets new standards (Athlon XP 1900+ to 2100+, Pentium 4 2.0 to 2.53 GHz)
- Pentium 4 with 2.4 GHz in the test - the new front runner (Athlon XP 1800+ to 2000+, Pentium 4 2.0 to 2.4 GHz)
- Intel Pentium 4 2.2 GHz vs AthlonXP 2000+ (Athlon XP 1800+ to 2000+, Pentium 4 2.0 to 2.2 GHz)
- AMD Processor Roundup (Duron 950 to 1200 MHz, Athlon 'C' 1.0 to 1.4 GHz, Athlon XP 1500+ to 1700+)
Who else If you are still interested in the processor history of AMD and Intel, the articles “ Intel's Processor History - The Path from the Intel 4004 to the Pentium 4 ” and “ AMD Processor History - An Overview from the K5 to the Athlon XP “have their real pleasure.
