I actutally take that statement back after reading this at the end of the review
"The performance that this motherboard enables speaks for itself, I'd say. As a desktop processor, the Pentium M fares very well. The stock Pentium M 755 at 2GHz rivals the lower speed grades of the Athlon 64 and Pentium 4 fairly consistently. Overclocked to 2.4GHz on a 533MHz bus, though, the Pentium M gets downright scary, shadowing the performance of the Athlon 64 4000+ through many of our tests, including games. The Pentium 4, even in its most extreme editions, often can't keep up. Games and similar apps with lots of "branchy" code—and perhaps quite a bit of x87 floating-point math—apparently befuddle the Pentium 4. The Pentium M, on the other hand, slices through them with ease."
Not bad for a processor with a slow FSB based on the Pentium 3 Architecture
