Summation

The Pentium 4 based on the Northwood is Intelís powerful weapon against AMD. The transition to the 0.13 Micron process allows the Northwood core to hit the 3000MHz+ mark with little or no modifications at all. At the same time, it allowed Intel to implement more L2 cache memory for superior performance. AMDís XP2000+ is already in its 0.18 process limitation; their upcoming 0.13 Thoroughbred core will replace the current 0.18 Athlon and will be their weapon against the Pentium 4.

For the average user, the Athlon XP2000+ remains the smartest solution for its lower price and good performance. Someone seeking for maximum performance will be better with a Pentium 4 considering its strong overclocking potential.
