Which CPU would be the fastest:

P4 eXtreme
P4 northwood
P4 prescott?

Assuming that we benchmark the latest version of all of them..

[Edited - Got it wrong]

The Prescott Core will run better than the Northwood but will also run alot hotter.

AMD's Athlon 64 3000+ Winchester Core will beat both of those, runs cooler and will cost less. Just incase your interested :wink:

The P4EE is based on the Northwood Core... (I think its core is a Gallatin?)
The Precott will benchmark(video encoding) quicker becouse of its long pipeline...
The Northwood will run games quicker for its short pipeline....
it all depends one what sort of benchmark you use to test the CPU's

thanks.

But let's say that we use gaming as a benchmark: would the northwood still be the best out there? P4 extreme seems pretty wild, prescott goes up to 3,8GHz now and as you say, the AMD seems pretty wild too... 8)

Edited post as Grim was right, I was looking at a different comparision.

The P4 EE IS as Grim said based on the Gallatin Core which is derived from the Northwood Core.


P4EE is based on the Northwood Core, which is slower than the Prescott core.
Nice and confusing for you :P

The AMD would in hands down due to its short Pipeline... (shorter the better of unpradictable tasks like gaming, the presscott "rocks" at video encoding due to its long pipeline whihc is suited to predictable tasks.)

I have a 3000+ overclocked to about a 3800+, it plays all the games i want (boyfriend:V, HL2, CS:S, Doom3....) with max bots/detail with non lag, pair it with a good GFX card eg, 6800GT or a 6600GT and you have a great gaming rig

For gaming you really are better off getting an AMD.

right, so you guys would all go for AMD then. I think a 3800+ (or something like that) just came out.

I heard that AMD's aren't that good a multitasking though, is that true? If one had to take that into consideration along with the gaming, what would you then choose?

It is true, there not as good at multitasking.... But i would personally still go fo an AMD64 because it kick ass for gaming
