TR & the Intel P4 2.8 GHz processor

WE’RE BACK AT IT again. Intel has a new Pentium 4 to release, and we’re
going to test it against AMD’s surprising new Athlon XP 2600+ to see which
is faster. This time out, Intel is making something of a leap; the fastest
Pentium 4 was previously 2.53GHz, but today’s release is the 2.8GHz variant.
Almost scary, innit?
Beyond the jump up in clock speeds, there’s not much new to report, but the
contest with the Athlon XP 2600+ is compelling. To keep things spicy, we’re
using our updated processor test suite, all the latest drivers, and a whole
lotta Cajun hot sauce.
