What do you get when you combine an on-die memory controller, dual-channel configuration and DDR400? A blazing fast memory subsystem of course. The Athlon FX beats the P4 by over 20% and leaves the Athlon XP 3200+ behind by more than 81%
The Intel P4 is still able to show a lead on this test as the frequency on the P4 gives it a strong advantage on this kind of minute CPU work. Notice the Athlon FX and the XP are nearly the same score, due to their sharing of the 2.2 GHz clock rate.
