That isn't really the case any more.  Not since the K6, really.  The
Pentium 4 has extremely bad floating point; the Athlon is still faster
than the Pentium 3 in that department.

This is absolutely true! The AMD K7's are superior to the Intel chips. My only complaint is that no one has come up with a dual K7 board. I use AMD exclusively in single processor boxes and they work like a charm... The only Intel chips I own are the ones in my dual processor box. :-( BTW, if anyone knows why they haven't come out with a dual processor K7 box, let me know.
