P4 3.0ghz vs 3700+ San Diego?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of upgrading my P4 3.0ghz Prescott but I'm not sure how much of a difference in performance I would get getting an Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego. Could someone fill me in on how much more of a boost I would be getting if I upgraded?

It's comparable to a 3.7ghz P4 so it's gonna feel more or less like a 700mhz increase.
Not bad at all...

the 3700+ does NOT refer to it being a 3.7ghz intel. there was an article on AMD's website stating this. you could do the math but again its not totally accurate because of som difference in technologies. But here goes

3700+ - 2200mhz x 9ops = 19800
p4 3.0 - 3000mhz x 6ops = 18000

it would be a 3.3ghz intel to do the ops per cycle of the amd. but its not 100 percent accurate . hope it helps

Hmm, now I'm somewhat confused. Will I even get a performance boost compared to my OC'd 3.0ghz @ 3.6ghz?

My Sempon64 at 2400 beats out a 3.8ghz Intel in Sisoft Sandra (likely do to the 300 FSB but still). A 3700+ is like a 3.6 ghz Intel or so I would imagine.

well, hard to tell, your comparing apples to bannans... I would say that your bus speed and your processor speed of your intel would compare to a stock 3700+

I would say you would notice an increase in preformance, especially when you overclock the 3700+. Like someone else said, a stock 3700+ will feel like a 3.2 or 3.3 P4, but when you overclock that 3700+ and get a good 2.7-2.8ghz out of it, you would likely feel like a 4.0ghz+ P4. Also AMD is generally better for gaming, so you would notice a boost there too.

Good luck.
