    I knew you would catch it any way but I thought it topical enough to put in the forums as well as there has been quite some discussion lately around the Hammer and when/how/what etc. I haven't seen the Anandtech write-up yet...will head on over there now thanx Wiggo.

    ps (after the visit to Wiggo's link)

    Now I know what I've been waiting for.......Hammer looks REALLY interesting and worth waiting for.

    what i don't like about the hammer though is that i'll have to buy a new mother board, ram and cpu when and if i upgrade to it.. i'm upgrading in the summer so i don't think i'll be going that route for a few years anyways but still... also i've heard that it's probably going to be pricey...

    The hammer architecture looks extremely promising, if AMD can secure 3rd party support for it then it will succeed greatly :thumb:

    Freshly ripped from AMD's site. ;)
    [b]Chipset vendors Ali, SiS, NVIDIA, and VIA are also working closely with AMD, and are expected to design and produce chipsets for AMD’s “Hammer” processor.

    So far it sounds very promisin' for AMD and not so good for Intel as Intel have been workin' very hard on "Yamhill" which is a late project to try and combat the "Hammer" line. :smokin:
