Beyond the jump up in clock speeds, there's not much new to report, but the contest with the Athlon XP 2600+ is compelling. To keep things spicy, we're using our updated processor test suite, all the latest drivers, and a whole lotta Cajun hot sauce.
Anyhow, read on to find out just how fast this new Pentium 4 really is.
This puppy looks like a Pentium 4. It looks just as much like a Pentium 4 as most other Pentium 4s. Unless you count Xeons or the old Socket 423 monstrosities. And maybe those new Celerons.
Like most review samples, it's hard to tell the clock frequency by looking at the processor itself. We mark them up with a permanent marker after their photo shoots.
