The archiving test brings us an opposite outcome – the Athlon 64 processors with their low-latency integrated memory controller beat the Pentiums.
When scanning for viruses with a popular anti-virus program, the Pentium 4 570J is almost as fast as the top models from AMD.
The Pentium 4 570J is considerably faster than its competitors in Adobe Photoshop CS.
The processors of the Pentium 4 family cannot boast a high performance in math1 programs. The new Pentium 4 570J equals the speed of the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.46GHz, but is very slow compared to the Athlon 64 CPUs.
The same goes for the popular Mathematica 5 suite. You shouldn’t wonder at the results, though. AMD’s processors have been excellent in computational tasks since the K7 architecture.
