Performance in Digital Content Creation Applications
If we compare the performance of our Pentium 4 670 with that of its predecessors, the performance gain will be quite small. The new solution costs $851, which is hardly justified by the benchmark results we see today.
The same conclusions could be made if we look at the SYSmark2004 results. The new CPU is hardly that much faster than the Pentium 4 570 with the twice as small L2 cache and the same core clock rate: we see the advantage of only 1-2%. However, Pentium 4 670 manages to defeat Pentium 4 Extreme Edition 3.73GHz. This once again proves the fact that all High-End Intel processors are offering pretty similar performance these days.
