The Content Creation test is a bit more interesting thankfully. The Athlons take the lead ever so slightly from the P4s but again, things are pretty much nip and tuck. The 3.6GHz P4 560 on the i925X puts up the best P4 score of the bunch and the i925X hints at slightly better performance within the Pentium 4 EE scores.
