    Found the article today nosing around the anandtech site, and it puts a great perspective on the budget end of processors, with all the benchmarks they ran and tests they did.

    i know. but obviously the p4 1.8a is not gonna be able to compare to any athlon xps higher than 2000. y don't they just compare something in the same league?

    Because the Intel CPU of the same performance is way over the $100 barrier.

    Because it&#39;s about what you get for your money... why on earth would you compare a budget priced AMD with the comparable but over-budget Intel equivalent?
    If Intel priced their 2.5GHz processor a little nearer the Athlon then same-speed comparisons would become relevant; as it is, Intel don&#39;t and the comparisons aren&#39;t.
    if your font size is this small i'll add you to my ignore list because you're wasting my time, OK?

    Also the 1700+ almost consistently outperforms the Pentium 4 - 1.8

    And look at this one where the most expensive P4 is the least performing. (even overbudget in this test at &#036;120.)

    Hehe, my 1700+ is quite merrily running at 1.84GHz (2200+ -ish) without getting too near 50degC under load.
    I&#39;m happy with that&#33;
