Preface

While the AMD fan base is still using the new 0.13µm processor core Waiting for the code name Thoroughbred, Intel can move on to the next evolutionary stage with its 0.13 µm Pentium 4 processors. We are talking about the new Pentium 4 models, which are operated with a front-side bus of 133 MHz or an effective 533 MHz via the quad-speed bus and are now available in stores with clock rates from 2.26 GHz to 2.53 GHz are. This not only brings Intel a lot closer to the 3 GHz target for the end of this year, but can also further extend its lead over its competitor AMD. After the Pentium 4 with 2.4 GHz and a front-side bus of 400 MHz was able to beat the Athlon XP 2000+ with a real clock rate of 1.66 GHz in almost every area of ​​our extensive benchmark suite, this time an Athlon XP was allowed to compete 2100+ against Intel's new high-end processors for theDesktop market, the Pentium 4 with 2.4 GHz and 2.53 GHz with a front-side bus of 533 MHz. Whoever was able to win the battle of the fastest processors for the time being should emerge from the following pages.

2.4/533 GHz Intel Pentium 4 and Athlon XP 2100+
Intel Pentium 4 2.4/400, 2.4/533 and 2.53/533
