Pentium 4 3.8GHz Game Requirement Analysis

The Pentium 4 brand refers to Intel's line of single-core desktop and laptop central processing units (CPUs) introduced on November 20, 2000 and shipped through August 8, 2008. They had the 7th-generation x86 microarchitecture, called NetBurst, which was the company's first all-new design since introduction of P6 microarchitecture of the Pentium Pro CPUs in 1995. NetBurst differed from the preceding P6 (Pentium III, II, etc.) by featuring a very deep instruction pipeline to achieve very high clock speeds (up to 3.8 GHz) limited only by TDPs reaching up to 115 W in 3.4 GHz ?3.8 GHz Prescott and Prescotts 2M cores . In 2004, the initial 32-bit x86 instruction set of the Pentium 4 microprocessors was extended by the 64-bit x86-64 set.

Right… I have to ask you by the way, is 3.8 Ghz 1 core equal to 1.9 Ghz Dual core? Processors of same class.

memory cache , FSB speed , lithography technology , TDP is also very VERY important
if they have same specs (cache , fsp etc) but only CPU cores and CPU speed isn't same , ex :
3.8 Ghz vs 1.9 Ghz Dual Core I will say 3.8 Ghz is better because
1.9 Ghz you should amplify with x1.6 not 2.0

I can show you this : http://www.game-debate.com/hardware/index.php?pid=461&cpu=Celeron%20450%202.2GHz
this CPU have 2.2 Ghz and 1 core but is better than Pentium 4 with 3.8 Ghz and 1 core too because they don't use same technology ;)
