Is this "Pentium 4 3.00 GHz" the (same as the) Pentium 4 630 of 3.00 GHz that I have in an ancient HP Compaq "dc5100" small-form-factory computer? Said machine, which is about 15 years old - the BIOS dates from 2005 - runs just fine with Linux Mint 19 (and MX-linux 19, in dual-boot). It cannot compete with multi-core systems, of course, but for being that old, it is an amazing machine. During the Covid-19 "lockdown" earlier this year 2019, I have been working at home with it, and it went about as smoothly as with my Dell laptop with a 2c/4t i5-6200U CPU.

Not suited even for modern versions of Ubuntu. It did outperform the Athlon at the time, but only by ramping up the clock speed to housefire levels. Good for retro games. I'll give it credit for that.

I have to pay my respects to this thing. I ran it in an ancient Dell pc for nearly 5 years, finally upgrading in 2015. For what it was I had this thing running quite well- I had it at 4gb of ram (although i think it could only utilize like 3-something lol) and a 512mb AGP Nvidia graphics card, running on Windows XP. I ran Minecraft, TF2, and Borderlands on this darn thing. (although the whole pc did crash once or twice running TF2) I found that I could somewhat multitask- by that I mean have Chrome and Minecraft open at the same time without much trouble. I guess I had this thing running quite good for what it was.
