Performance in Internet Applications

Inexpensive personal computers are often used as Internet clients so we dedicated a separate section of the review to typical Internet applications. We used the new WebMark 2004 benchmark which measures the speed (time it takes the system to react) of visiting various Web sites created with advanced Internet technologies (Macromedia Flash, Shockwave, JavaScript, Java, DHTML, SSL, .NET and others).

Well, you might have foretold it. The Intel Celeron family confidently occupies the bottom of the diagram, although their results are not downright bad as in other tests. For example, the top-end Celeron 2.8 outperforms the Athlon XP 2200+, although this is hardly a great achievement. The Pentium 4 1.8A again fails to justify its high price and works at the same speed as the twice-cheaper Celeron 2.2GHz. Now, let’s view the results in more detail:

The first diagram shows the speed of working with classical informational Web sites, and the second one shows the speed with commercial sites that provide paid services.
