Posted on: 12/06/2000 09:18 PM

Thanks to CarterTG for pointing out this nice article which features a face-off between the new P4 at 1.5GHz, Athlon 1.2GHz and a pair of 1GHz P3s doing workstation duties in Win2K.
The range of applications we have evaluated here suggests that SMP capability could have a valuable performance impact for many Windows 2000 power users. Without doubt we will continue to find other applications of interest to professionals and consumers that respond favorably to the existence of a second CPU.
Many excellent benches showing us exactly what we already know, SMP is better in almost every circumstance.
