Linux Hardware benchmarks: Intel's Prescott, Intel's Extreme Edition, and AMD's Athlon 64 3400+.
"Finally, we're going to declare the Athlon 64 the best bang for the buck. You'll notice that it's consistently on par with the Pentium 4 processors and in many cases much faster (not considering the Extreme Edition which is over twice the price). The Athlon 64 3400+ is about $100 more than the Prescott but you can get the 3200+ model which is only 200MHz slower for about the same price as the 3.2GHz Intel chips. Whether that 200MHz is worth the money is your call but due to it's performance and future-proof 64-bit compatibility, we name the Athlon 64 our top processor."
