The week before Comdex Fall kick off was not really exciting and there were not a lot of interesting reviews or highly-important news, but we still managed to find something fascinating read for your pleasure.

The article of the week is definitely the Intel Pentium 4 with SSE3 technology review at a Chinese web-site called OCHeaven. The boys had managed to get Intel’s Prescott chip with 800MHz Quad Pumped Bus, 1MB of L2 cache, HT technology and 13 new SSE3 instructions to test it against the currently available Pentium 4 processors at 2.80GHz as well as at 3.20GHz. The results they received are quite surprising – in some benchmarks the Prescott 2.80GHz performed nearly as fast as conventional Pentium 4 CPU at 3.20GHz, in others it was behind the 2.80GHz Northwood microprocessor.
