“My first processor”

Written on: 23/01/2014 by Winterburn (5 reviews written)

I got my first computer back in 2001. It came with this Intel Pentium 4 processor. During those years the P4 was the best among the available processors. It was also the latest to arrive. It did perform extremely well. If I had external graphic support enabled in mu cpu then I believe I would get way better performance. However, I was still very satisfied with my computer. I could play games like Max Payne etc. without having to upgrade. All in all I would say this had been a great… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/03/2008

The Pentium 4 is a nice CPU to have although, Intel made quite a few mistakes here and there. If your an intel fan or require the use of a powerful system e.g. for games, rendering or anything really intensive etc then go with the Athlon 64 or 64 X2 (even better, Intel's own, more up-to-date, Core2Duo and Quad2Quad) processor. The Pentium 4 has been plagued with bad ideas since it's first release since, it would seem, Intel's marketing staff were telling the engineers what to do, not the other… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/10/2005 by chris groeschl (1 review written)

I got my Intel Pentium 4 processor with my AA8 3rd eye and I'm not much of a techy but the guru is reading the temp a 149 F. This is causing the fan to run at 4800 rpm and therefore vibrates a lot and is noisy. If anyone has input on how I could fix this problem please make a comment… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/10/2005 by Danneh141 (1 review written)

Intel Pentium 4 is by far the best processor you are going to buy. It's the fastest and the most powerful processor. It's brilliant quality and it supports ANY game you throw at it. DOOM 3, Half-Life2, Half-Life2 Lost Coast*, Counter-Strike Source, BattleField 2* And thats only on a 3.00GHz, 800MHzFSB, with HT Technonology. Image the new 3.6GHz or 3.8GHz or DUAL CORE! Amazing!

Recommended buy!!… Read Full Review

Geefour's Response to Danneh141's Review

Written on: 08/03/2008

The Pentium 4 is actually the second slowest processor based on what it can accomplish as far as I am concerned. AMD mocked how many instructions-per-second that the Athlon 64 could accomplish compared to Intel's Pentium 4 processor line. The Pentium 4 had some inherently bad designs but, since it was marketing that were driving Intel, the processor speed was the boasting matter - AMD was driven by the engineers so, AMD spent less money on it's boasting of how its CPUs could and would wipe the floor with the Intel CPUs

Written on: 14/05/2008

I am using P4 3.0Ghz HT with 1.5Gb DDR ram and believe me I am using it from last 3 years, and I don't want to buy another computer. I do everything on it, from gaming to development or even DVD making and editing with such as Pinnacle studio 11 software. It takes only 20 to 25 minutes to install windows xp sp3. I also used core2duo, yeah its good but quite expensive but i think i really dont need it for another two or three years but i need to upgrade my ram to 3 or 4 Gb to make it core2duo like computer. If you have limited budget than you should buy it. I bought this pc in more than 2000 dollars without LCD. when it arrived.

Written on: 15/01/2004 by micko (1 review written)

The Intel Pentium 4 Processor really is one of the most reliable processors u can find over the counter. but you have to be a technician in order to match your parts like the fsb of the northbrige, the ram, and the processor itself that has many versions. unlike amd processors, there's n hassle at all, no need to change ur power supply (if u already have at least 300 watts). with pentium 4 processors, you made a mistake in buying parts then it will run like pentium 3… Read Full Review

“The Pentium 4 is by far a superior processor, it's...”

Written on: 09/08/2002 by Ryguy. (1 review written)

The Pentium 4 is by far a superior processor, it's basic math. The frontside bus of a P4 is 533mhz, the frontside of an Athlon is 100mhz, so it's easy to see the difference there. Plus P4's are just faster with clockspeed, would you really take a 2.53ghz P4 over an Athlon that won't even If you want to go the Athlon site and read all of their analogies, and ways of hiding the fact that they are behind in the markey go ahead, but math doesn't lie… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/09/2002

I must agree with the P4's excellent performance. I have always been a fan of the Celeron processor which i ran at 1.1GHz. I have recently purchased a P4 1.8GHz which is vastly superior. For comparison, my Celeron with GeForce4 made only 70f.p.s in Quake3, my P4 with the same graphics card makes 147f.p.s. 3D Mark 2001SE gives me 4853 points with 1.8GHz, GeForce4 and 128MB DDR.

The front side bus of an athlon started at 200mhz and is now up to 333. all processors are double pumped.

The pentium4 is only good over 2.5 ghz.
If you benchmark duron1300 and pentium 4 1.7ghz or any celeron.
Duron is running away.
And how much cost duron and how much Pentium.

Written on: 14/11/2002

The older P4's are not as fast as the AMD's but they are a superior chip in terms of cooling. But since there processes are longer the clock speed severly holds it back until you reach around 2Ghz once you reach that the P4 becomes superior as the process length does'nt matter then and the new 3ghz with Hyper Threading is almost twice as fast couple that with the 1066 ram and it is awesome

The Intel Pentium 4 processor is good and it is the fastest processer out there. But the only problem is, they aren't as dependable as the pentium III processer. I think they slapped it on the market to meet demand. But this is only my opinion… Read Full Review
