Performance in PCMark04, 3DMark 2001 SE and 3DMark05
PCMark04 doesn’t reveal any unexpected results, too. I would only like to point out the fact that this benchmark is quite insensitive to the increase in the L2 cache size, therefore Pentium 4 670 and Pentium 4 570 run almost equally fast.
According to the results of the popular 3DMark 2001 SE benchmark, the performance of the CPUs with NetBurst architecture is greatly dependent on the bus frequency as well as on the L2 cache size. That is why Pentium 4 670 outpaces all other members of the family except Pentium 4 Extreme Edition targeted for gaming enthusiasts.
