AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 - Page 4
Here are the timings for our Athlon 64 FX-55, the 3800+ and an Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz.(less is better)
You can see the Intel processor prevails and computes the primes much faster
than either of the AMD processors. Even though the FX-55 clock speed is 2.6GHz,
200MHz faster than the Intel CPU, the difference is disappointing. Knowing
Athlons' disadvantage in computational benchmarks we expected at least slightly
speed from the FX-55.
