    Prior to the K6 CPU's the core was underneath in the socket but I spose the dropped the heat spreader at that time as Intel didn't use them then and they probably wanted to distance the K7 away from the K6 at that time. :smokin:

    well they are going to rape intel processors.......because someone said a few weeks ago that they released hammers to various companies at 800MHz for testing purposes and some benchmarks got released and they were comparing very well up against 1.6-1.8GHz P4's. That doesn't really corrolate to real word benchmarks though, I'm still a beleiver casue lately AMD hasn't done anything in the past few months, and truthfully my opinion is after they terminated the thunderbird line up they only released the xp lineup just so they can have something on the market while hammer is under development.

    Your guess is as good as mine but AMD did state earlier this year that they should come in around the price of the topend Athlon release price range if ya can figure that one out. ;)

    What will the big differences be between the two?
