For those who lives in the UK, you should get your hands on the May edition of CustomPC magazine.
They've done a lab test of a P3 and a P4. I won't go into all the details

P3 spec:
Tualatin-core Pentium III-S CPU (1.26GHz)
133MHz FSB
256kb L2 Cache
Socket370

This CPU was OC'd to 1.8GHz.

One paragraph taken word for word from the magazine:
"In the FPU-intensive benchmark, RealStorm 2004, the Pentium III, at 1.8GHz with a lowly 256kb of Level 2 cahce, outgunned the modern 2.6GHz Pentium 4c, with its 800MHz FSB, double the Level 2 cache and a massive amount of extra memory bandwidth."

yeah...that was talked about when the first P4 came out

basically its like riding a 18-speed bike....the P4 is pedaling faster, but its in a lower gear and not going as fast as the P3 at the same clock speed

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
