The magazine, in an article by Georg Schnurer, compares a prototype 1.2GHz Athlon64, a 1.2GHz Athlon XP and a Pentium 4 running at 2.2GHz. Of the benchmarks, the most important noted by our German readers are the Bapco Sysmark 2002, SPECfp base 2000, and SPECint base 2000. The magazine also publishes a number of comparisons between these three different CPUs using different games. The Athlon 64 (Clawhammer) is shown as having 1MB of cache L2 cache, the XP 256K, and the 2.2GHz Pentium 4 512K, with the different processors using PC2700, PC2700 and PC2100 memory types in order. Here's a brief snap of what the paper magazine publishes: Bapco Sysmark Athlon 64 178, Athlon XP 145, Pentium 4 217 SPECfp base 2000 Athlon 64 674, Athlon XP 504, Pentium 4 677 SPECint base 2000 Athlon 64 739, Athlon XP 532, Pentium 4 774 Although the benchmarks are not available yet on the c't Web site, it's likely that they may be published later.
