Intel Pentium 4 3.73Ghz Extreme Edition

4. PCMark04

PCMark04 is an application-based benchmark and a premium tool for measuring overall PC performance. It uses portions of real applications instead of including very large applications or using specifically created code. This allows PCMark04 to be a smaller installation as well as to report very accurate results. As far as possible, PCMark04 uses public domain applications whose source code can be freely examined by any user.

PCMark04 includes 4 categorized suites for benchmarking your computer. These include CPU, Graphics, Memory and a Hard Disk Drive benchmark. In our case, we selected only the CPU test suite.

With PCMark04, the P4 3.73Ghz ED achieved the highest score from among the CPUs we have included in the test.

The test results, more analytically:

  Intel P4 3.73Ghz Intel P4 660 AMD 3800+
File Compression (MB/sec) 5.4 5.3 3.3
File Encryption (MB/sec) 70.5 65.6 37.2
File Uncompression (MB/sec) 45.2 42.9 28.9
Image Processing (MPixels/sec) 18.5 16.9 14.6
Grammar Check (KB/sec) 3.0 2.4 6.5
File Decryption (MB/sec) 107.5 102.3 74.2
Audio Conversion (KB/sec) 2921.7 2779.1 3171.9
WMV Video Compression (FPS) 64.1 59.7 56.2
DivX Video Compression (FPS) 88.4 77.6 71.8

The AMD 3800+ is still better in the Grammar Check and Audio Conversion, by a distance from the next best. In all other tests, Intel's products lead.
