    i could be wrong , but:

    i heard someone benchmarked the P3 vs P4 and found that the P4 is not any faster than the P3.

    whats the diff. in chips anyways.

    please let me know.


    thanks

    the P4 had some performance issues in the beginning, but that was some time ago. Any fairly recent P4 is going to smoke a P3.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    yessir!

    The P3 is a far more efficient CPU, however a P4 has the brute force to outdo it.
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    What I had read was that a p3 of equivalent mhz was faster than the p4.

    How many mhz? If its 2.0ghz vs 2.0ghz that can't be, because p4 has higher cache and L2. Do you have proof of these findings?

    The first P4 ,the willamette was really bad, but the northwood core helped to make things faster!

    There is more than just Mhz, and Cache to a CPU.

    There is also something called an instruction set which plays a MAJOR role in how a cpu works....

    well there was no p3 2.0. it would be in comparing a p3 1.4 for example. Some p3's also came with 512k l2 I think.

    all last p3 sold were mostly p3s (s for server) variations with all of them had fsb133 with 512k cache and this cache was FAST

    I think if mhz are equal, any p3 would smoke a p4, except the last ones with 512k cache and fsb800

    but then if you give fsb800 to a p3, well would be funny to compare

    just look at the centrino I'm writing with, a pentium M 1.5 ghz, with mostly p3 design with p4 instructions and fsb400, I can crush every p4 upto 2.4 ghz where I get equal scores.

    so imagine a 3.2 ghz centrino... lol, yeah I know I got 1 mb L2 cache but well...

    the next p4 will have 1 mb as well, would be nice to compare the two...

    Yep. I HIGHLY doubt ANY P3 would keep up with any of the newer "c" revision P4s.
