2500+ Mobile Barton Overclocking and Benchmark Results

Many sounded the death knell for overclocking when one of the overclocking stalwarts, AMD, started locking their massively popular Athlon XP chips.

Those in the market still for an Athlon XP chip may want to hold off purchasing decisions until after reading through this article.

Intel P4 3.2Ghz Review

It doesn't feel like too long has passed since the introduction of the P4 'C' family, indeed, it's only been around 2 months, but this particular release was to be expected since Intel has to capitalize on its performance lead over AMD. True, AMD's 3200+ with 400Mhz FSB (200Mhz core) has already made it's debut and is now widely available, but the consensus amongst reviewers is that the 2.2Ghz 3200+ is really not a huge step forward for AMD. AMD did indeed outmaneuvre Intel by releasing their "3.2Ghz" class chip ahead of Intel's 3.2Ghz 'C', but we think you might be a little more impressed with Intel's release than with AMD's.
