: Pentium 4 slower than its predecessor :


Not really - check out for some very thorough
(and very independent!) comparisons, both between Pentium III and Pentium 4 and Athlon..

True, you may have to recompile your software using
Intel's compilers to get the best performance.

In time though, once applications are targeted for it explicitly,
the Pentium 4 should make a wonderful music processing engine.

Disclaimer: I work on these compilers for a living. However,
these are my personal views. I have no knowledge of what,
if any, music applications are being worked on to use the
Pentium 4. If you happen to be the author of such an app and
want to know more about Pentium 4, I would be glad to talk to you.
