I'm not an expert but I believe you've reversed the two. Athlons are known for very strong integer performance. Their FPU is also respectable, but Pentium 4's can be much faster with code that is optimized for SSE2. The best evidence of this is GIMPS performance on Pentium 4s as compared to Athlons.
