Can't wait. It will be sweet!:king:
How fast do you think one of these babies can go?

Hard to say, but I really hope that they dump the speed rating system that they're currently using. When I buy a processor, I like it to reflect what I will get out of it...not what they THINK that it's equivalent to.

yeah it is bit of a pain. I sell computer systems right, and a few days latter i get a phone call from a client. "My Computer is a AMD 1800 but in a program it says its a 1533, you ripped me off!!"

Takes a fair time to explain the Performance Rating difference to MHz :mad:

wasted time.

I think the chip maker's main aim with these are mainly heat reduction - as current day processors make quite a bit of heat to dissipate. It'll certainly help in notebooks - with the trend being thin and light, heat issues are a real bugger to tackle. It's just a pleasant side effect that the chips are able to be scaled higher.

I have never owned a notebook but i imagine they would get warm :)

how quickly do laptops start to heat up?
i would imagine that would be the biggest problem with the new 1ghz+ mobiles...

pretty fast, as the fan on the heatsink isn't on all the time to save battery.

.13 will be VERY VERY VERY NICE

still needs a hsf though....

wait till the .0000000000000000000000001 ones...

I'll be dead by then. :angel:

Everyone will be, due to the amount of heat an AMD chip with a .0000000000000000000000001 micron architecture would put out ;).

lol, lets just say if it ever got that low, it'd be in like the 3000 ADADs..lol

Thanks, Jealous :)

And you never know, aznx. Our grandkids might be there to see it :).
