Thread: Northwood the way to go

    Hi all

    While i have been the big AMD fan in the past, over the last few months expanding into the Pentium 4 realms has been to my surprise rather interesting

    The most interesting is the Northwood core Pentium 4

    If any overclockers are thinking of going for Pentium 4 wait until the 0.13 micron P4 hits the shores

    Already i have my 2.2G @ 2.65G without any voltage increase. Not a bad effort.

    I think you'll change your mind when you see the new Athlon benchmarks.
    Ok, the new Northwood is better than the old P4, but itīs still too pricey.
    Athlon is cheaper and the new athlon will make everyone drool

    For overclocking, the 1.6A P4 seems to be pretty nice. It's not uncommon for people to hit 2.2-2.4GHz with the proper hardware. I dunno about you guys, but that's some fine OCing there. 600-800MHz is one heckuva good overclock, especially considering these are all stock speeds.

    My personal opinion is that there are some things AMD is better for and other that Intel is better for. There are also situations where neither one is the correct response. My personal opinion is that Laptops and Dual-processing are still Intel's territory. The Athlon's still get too hot for my tastes, and this is their first SMP sweep ever. My gaming rig has a nice 1.4GHz T-Bird running @ 1.53GHz currently, while I'm running dual 800EB's on a VP6.
