In this review there is a brief technical overview, stability analysis, performance comparisons, and discussion of support issues for the Pentium 4 at the kernel level and in GCC. For the performance portion, the Pentium 4 is compared to a Pentium III 1Ghz processor and an AMD Athlon 1.2GHz processor in the areas of integer performance, floating point performance, application performance (Quake 3), and compilation performance. On the support front, there are several questions answered by Alan Cox on kernel issues and Jan Hubicka on GCC issues. If you've been considering buying a Pentium 4 for use under Linux, read this first."
