A lot has been said about the Pentium IV since it's launch, most of it being negative. This isn't the first time that Intel have been criticised for new processors, but ultimately their technology becomes more accepted and in some cases the standard. Remember MMX? It offered no benefits at launch but very quickly became a must have because games and software were written to support the instructions. This is now true of their latest processor, the Pentium IV. It has been slated for it's inability to beat a lower clock speed Athlon DDR, but this is un-realistic. There isn't ANY software that supports the architecture of new SSE2 instructions of ...

The Intel Pentium 4 (Williamette) chip has been designed virtually from the ground up, and is the first entirely new architecture since the P6 core - which was in every Pentium since the Pentium Pro, and is built around a totally different principle to the Pentium III chip. Intel has taken the (apparently) bizarre option to design the Pentium 4 without the everyday user in mind???? Strange? Well not so if you think about it - how many people with say a 700MHZ Pentium III sit in front of office 2000 wishing it would go faster? Unless you are the worlds quickest typist, you are just not gonna have that problem. So what is the Pentium 4 aimed at? Well clearly the power user Read the complete review

Well with intel releasing there Pentium 4 series not so long ago, most would agree that the performance of a 1.4 P4 was no better than the 1ghz P3. So what exactly are Intel doing to combat this problem? Well they have hit the market with the 1.7Ghz P4. But dear o dear, this latest installment seems to have the same performance as the earlier P4's. The only difference with the P4 is the power consuption. Which it soaks up 1.75v. So how does it perform with your applications and your gaming? Well to answer that in a straight forward way. It performs terribly. The more noticable software problems arise around MS Word & Excel. Also do not expect ... Read the complete review

With the introduction of a new generation processor comes the inevitable confusion among consumers about what to get. And face it, the competitive situation in the PC micro processor market today has caused a pace of product introductions in shorter order than ever seen before in what was already a fast paced industry. The purpose of this epinion is to examine what is behind Intels' new generation of processor, to determine what it means in terms of performance for both now, and the future, and finally, to help the consumer make an informed decision about when or if to upgrade to the Pentium 4. What is the difference between the Pentium 4 and the Pentium ... Read the complete review

The P4 has almost the biggest hype on the market just now but it really is just the biggest waste of money for buisness users. Alright, I'll give it some slack, it is really good for gamers as it runs pretty smoothly and better than the P3 but it is useless for running programs. I have seen the P3 run programs faster but you would normally think the opposite, wouldn't you? Just because this is a P4 and says it is 1.4GHZ and upwards doesn't mean it will work that fast with all program structures. The 1.4GHZ+ Malarky Let's go into detail about the whole MHZ/GHZ terms for the computer newbies. A processor does ... Read the complete review
