From someone called Palomino87: This is very secret - AMD realeased these pictures to branches in Australia, Germany and USA only, for unknown reasons. It shows a new Barton-Core AthlonXPô @ 4000+ and a FSB of 366Mhz.

This all that is known so far, these pictures were aquired from AMD Australia in Sydney. Only Picture availible is provided.

if you want performance, just buy a 3.06 or 2.8 p4 and be done with it... Who wants a 366mhz fsb??!!

Yes that procs are nice and perform to the extreme,
unfortunately not everyone (including me) can afford
the price on the newest procs due to their high price.

Me myself where planning on the 3.06 ghz & Geforce FX this month but i will have to wait a bit longer because my girlfriend
keep telling me she need a faster comp than her P3 650 and a better crt monitor to save her poor eyes. And what can i say, i'm going to get her some new stuff...

BTW, P3 650??

Shameless to ask for something faster isn't it? *cough*

I agree, you really think AMD puts normal selling labels with core steppings on its testing stuff?

Hey '__tweaker as I'm buildin' myself a P4 setup soon then it's only fair that you should taste the AMD side of the coin as well. :devil win

I don't know yet but AMD was well in front but I do need the P4 experience most atm. ;)

No you dont

I really havent seen much of a difference between equally priced stuff that comes through the shop. In fact the only real difference ive noticed (besides obvious Sandra and 3dmark scores whichi believe has no noticeable relation to actual cpu power in applications) is that P4's have more complex (thus more annoying) heat-removing schemes (esp on Dell's - not relavant to you i know)

I say you buy the 8RDA+ now and OC the f8ck out of XP proc before you kick your self later for not having the OC bragging rights.

I think this is all just me talking aloud again thou...

Are you implying that the picture was doctored? I just cant believe that anyone would do that.

JediAgent

Photoshop's great aint it..... :D

SlackMaster

If it were that great, then it wouldn't be obious that it's fake. Although that is not fair to say that, because photoshop is great, it's obvious that the person who created it is the one with issues. I'm sure that with enough talent, that picture could look authentic if it was done with MS paint.

JediAgent
01-21-2003, 05:37 AM
I was saying photoshop is great bc it does look real, and the type of ppl who create these things are not the type with experienced talents, simply knowledge of the use of a program, and some time. Photoshop lowers creation times of fake pics such as that one... the reason we consider (or just me) it fake is still at the top of the page if you want to read it...

SlackMaster
01-21-2003, 06:24 AM
Well Jedi, I have to disagree with you. Just by glancing at the phot, I was able to tell that it was fake.

Maybe your Jedi powers are failing :)

Don't get me wrong, I never doubted the fact that you thought it was fake. I'm just sorry for the people who thought it was real.

/Kicks Jedi in the A$$ when he's picking up his pride. :)

Yeah, well it really doesnt hurt newbs to think its real. A real 4000+ Hammer is due out in late Q4, so let em believe it, they feel special they know in advance... new product rumors are good for newbs until they get ****y about how much they think they know...

/falls over and realizes lost pride cannot be picked up but must be won back, woosh, hisss, as his lightsaber flicks on a slashs Slack upside his big dumb head

Spit balls are really wet and at high speed dont burn when the lightsaber hits 'em... thus they still hit me! Annoying as flies!

Nice work on the 5000+:D That one look better than the first one.Its amazing what one can do with photoshop or one of the other drawing proggy's out there.You can just about make anything you want to and edit others pics to anything you want them to look like.
