Intel Company has just announced new processors based on Prescott 2M core featuring 2M L2 cache memory. Besides that, these Pentium 4 CPUs also support Enhanced Memory 64 Technology and Enhanced Intel SpeedStep. Let’s find out if these architectural innovations will affect the situation in the processor market.
The performance of our testing participants in ACDSee, which consists of simple packet functions for image editing and in fully-fledged Adobe Photoshop is about the same. Athlon 64 processor family seems to be a little bit better suited for image processing, than the solutions from Intel.
At the same time we have to state that Pentium 4 6XX CPUs outperform their predecessors from the Pentium 4 5XX family by just a few tenths of a percent. In other words, the increase of the L2 cache memory in Prescott 2M CPUs is hardly noticeable in graphics editing apps.
