    As you all SHOULD know by now, AMD has released the 3200+ Athlon XP (i hope u intel fans feel a sense of grief now). It , like we hope the K8 will do, is running on a 200 MHz FSB DDR (400 MHz), which equals the new P4 on the Canterwood NB's. It has a 6% better proformence rate compared to the 3.06 w/o HT on. It is on 200MHz*11 Multiplier. I was wondering, since i am thinking about getting the 2500+ Barton, if you can get that to the same speeds. Apperntly, it looks like AMD just did the OC'ing work for us. The dropped the mult. and pumped up the FSB, and AMD World thinks that to. So, since it is still on the Barton core, im going to guess that you can OC it to 3200+ speeds. But I want to know, because AMD World said that they couldnt even get the FSB up to 205MHz*11. (They easily got 200MHz*12, and didnt comment about12.5 or 13) Thanks, and that should also help ppl with 2800+ and 3000+. By the way, does anyone in the Tweaktown family have a 3000+?

    Uhhh, the canterwood P4C outpreforms the 3200+ in everything except float in sandra...nice comparing a 3.06 WITH HT on totally weakens the chip...

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Right about now, I wouldn't be too worried about an AMD out-preforming the Intel, but soon in a few months it will be an issue for debate

    Yeah, the K8 Athlon 64 Clawhammer should give the presscotts a bit of trouble. But there wont be a real fair way to Benchmark cause its 64 vs 32

    Yeah, you right. Tejas is supposed to start at like 9.4 GHz speeds, but i've only heard reports of it being 32 bit, not 64. Thats really dumb, because it will be hard to support all of the things, even though K8 will be 32/64. But back to the main question, do you think its possible?

    Well for starters, no every CPU will overclock to the same degree and this is where luck plays it part but most XP2500+'s seem to get inbetween XP2800+ and XP3000+.

    Wiggo how can you get the Performance Rating into MHZ/GHZ there has to be a formula...
