  1. GERMAN TECH MAGAZINE c't has published a set of benchmarks in the latest paper edition of its magazine which some subscribers have received today. The magazine, in an article by Georg Schnurer, compares a prototype 1.2GHz Athlon64, a 1.2GHz Athlon XP and a Pentium 4 running at 2.2GHz.

    Not bad really for a 1.2 GHz processor, my guess is that it will all come down to timing from both AMD and Intel (and probably pricing) once these new CPUs start rolling in the retail.

    Of course, I remember when my measley 1.2 T-bird outperformed a 1.6 P4, granted that was a long time ago, and times have changed, it just goes to show how the better you put things together, and take the time to get it correct, the better it will turn out.
