HDTach is a free hard disk benchmarking program from SimpliSoftware. This benchmark is not only capable of producing results on hard disk access times but also CPU usage required during disk access.
A small difference can be seen in the CPU utilisation during the tests, with the Core 2 Duo's performing 1-2% better than the Pentium4.
Cinebench is a benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software Cinema 4D. Consequently, the results of tests conducted using cinebench carry significant weight when analyzing a computer’s performance in everyday use.
The OpenGL graphics benchmarks were more closely matched, with the Pentium4 scoring around 600 points lower in all tests.
