Intel Pentium 4 1.5GHz Review

TweakTown has posted a review on the Intel Pentium 4 1.5GHz processor.
The Intel Pentium 4 processor is a fast processor, built for the future, not today. Intel should have designed the processor for today so it´s features can be fully utilized. Intel didn´t though, they designed it hoping programmers would take advantage of the processors new features after it´s release, not a very wise discussion I believe. I cannot justify spending AU$2000 on a processor and memory, not when it can be beaten in just about all benchmarks by a top end AMD Athlon processor (especially AMD´s new AXIA stepping which can hit 1.5GHz) which is a quarter of the price of an Intel Pentium 4, at least at the moment.
