    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.

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