Prescott benchmarks leaked


— 2:38 AM on January 28, 2004

The Inquirer has leaked a handful of benchmark results comparing Prescott and Northwood Pentium 4 processors at 3.2GHz. Those who speculated that Prescott's longer pipeline would result in slower clock-for-clock performance than Northwood will be somewhat vindicated by the results. However, Prescott scores an unexpected victory in PCMark 2004, suggesting that the chip may have at least one trick up its sleeve.
