Intel's Pentium 4 570J - Will 3.8GHz do the trick?

@ 2004/11/15
March of 2000 marked a very interesting time for AMD and Intel; just two days apart, each company broke the 1GHz barrier with an extremely high priced, low yield, barely available CPU – and users stood in awe. Today, Intel quietly introduces a Pentium 4 running at 3.8GHz, and the excitement is nowhere to be found.

Maybe it’s that the 3.8GHz clock speed is hidden behind the 570J model number. Maybe it’s that our latest benchmarks have shown that it’d take much more than 3.8GHz for Intel to truly regain the performance crown. Or maybe it’s the cancellation of the 4GHz Pentium 4 that has robbed the 3.8GHz model’s 15 minutes of fame. Then again, this isn’t the first time we’ve reviewed a speed-bump without getting too excited, so maybe business is just as usual.
