Pentium XE 840 vs Pentium 4 XE 3.73

XE840 1 s Pentium XE 840 vs Pentium 4 XE 3.73

Intel has compared the performance of the Pentium XE 840 (3.2Ghz
/ 800Mhz FSB) vs a Pentium 4 XE 3.73Ghz at 1066Mhz FSB. CineBench 2003 supports
multi-threading and it is one of the favorite benchmark around to show how
multi-threading can speed things up. Pentium 4 XE 840 equipped with dual core
has Hyper-Threading technology built in which therefore is capable of up to 4
threads. Pentium 4 XE 3.73Ghz on the other hand has a single core is capable of
two threads. The results from CineBench 2003 showed that the lower clocked/FSB
Pentium XE 840 can render 1.5 times faster than Pentium 4 XE 3.73Ghz. If the
applications aren’t written to support multi-threading, you might just see a
drop in performance using the Pentium XE 840 but having 4 threads certainly will
improve multi-tasking capabilities in one way or another.
