Intel Pentium 4 benchmarks stalinised

Willamette benchmarks airbrushed out

Hardware site 2CPU, which a few days ago published a set of Pentium 4 benchmarks, is reporting that pressure from Intel has forced it to pull them from its site.

A brief statement, which can be found on the page where the benchmarks formerly known as Pentium 4 benchmarks resided, now says "the benchmarks have been removed at the request of Intel".

Still, we've no doubt whatever that now the genie is out of the bottle and the cat is out of the bag, copies of the offending benchmarks may be found elsewhere on the thing that is called the World Wide Wibble.

And of course you can still check out our closeup pix of the P4, which we first published some two months ago, here.

The 2CPU statement can be found here. ®
