Adding the normal Caveat that performance is always a function of the type
of job you want to run...:
There are some Gaussian 98 numbers I ran a long time ago on various
processors including an Athlon 1800XP which should be the same as an Athlon
1800MP (they only differ in the fact that one of the external bridges is
lasered open on the XP version to stop it working parallel. If you close the
bridge with some conductive paint it then reports itself as an 1800MP...) -
There aren't any 2.4GHz P4 M numbers on there unfortunately but the Gaussian
input is there if you have access to such a machine running Gaussian you
could get the numbers.
> From just general experience I think you should be looking at a
speed difference for the P4M - of the order of 2x or more. The 2 MB cache of
the P4M makes a big big difference. Plus the FSB speed is better.
I hope this helps,
All the best
