    A good statement:

    I doubt that amd will bow anytime soon, allthough it seems as if they are putting it all on 64bit, may it rise or fall, if it is going to be a hit (wich i doubt) intel will for sure release a similar product right afterwards sending amd down to beeing the underdog again, but, what if it is going to be a pos? then amd have been wasting alot of time, making a average processor and doing paper realeses, not exactly what i would call good marketing.

    this seems like a last somewhat desperate shot from amd to get to the top, however, i dont see intel planing on producing any 64bit desktop chips, and if it was worth it, they would be making them for sure.

    Meanwhile, intel just realesed ht to the p4, are coming with a 800mhz fsb chip in a few months, as long as springdale and canterwood are coming out (yes the amd does have dual ddr boards and no they arent using the bandwidth near as good as the p4)

    Price vs performance? The price difference on equal performing processors are minimal, i mean if u choose what to buy because its 10$ cheaper u really should reconsider how much a fast computer does mean to u.

    Some people are saying that amd are better because they perform better on slower mhz, well using some brain activity would sow u that when buying a p4 u pay alot less per mhz than u do when buying a amd, and the argument just shows a great lack of beeing serious.

    HT is here, 800mhz is just around the corner, so are canterwood and springdale, and prescott arent to far away, so what does amd have to show ? Paper realeses and 64bit talk my ass..

    :cheers:

    All I can say to that is....I hope that was a quote and not yours Tweaker. My spellchecker and grammar program alarm went off, and all I could see was the flashing red lights...oh wait, that's the uneducated biased opinion alarm....hmmmm...
    To me, it comes down to : Opinions are like @$$holes...everyone has one, but the only one you need worry about is your own...:afro:

    Yes it was a quote. I dunno bout you guys but i should have been quite irritated as a customer if someone treated me the way amd treats their customers. If Intel should behave like that i would tell them to go and **** themselfs and switch to amd..

    All they keep doing is delaying and making those "paper releases"

    Btw how long is it now since the actual first release date on the hammer were set? :mad:

    :cheers:

    as the only place that you can deal with them is buying their cpu and technical support.

    Donīt you need some special program that supports the Hyper Threading, to get some benefit from it??? I donīt think there are very much of that kind of programs...at least not yet! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :D

    all you need is a multi-threaded program...it's not a big deal for the average home user - but I have lot's of CAD/CAM/CAE applications at work that would benefit from it

    ...in fact I will be building 3 hyper-threading workstations this spring/early summer - 3GHz P4's & hopefully springdale if it's out.
    I was planning to use GF FX cards with them - but I'm not so sure now since I've seen the early reviews, I might go with Radeon9700/9800's with the FireGL driver mod :thumb:

    He means the way AMD puts off their release that for a later time...for a long time.

    I think that AMD sucks with releasing products that dont appear on shelves for months, and pushing the release dates back.
    But to be completly honest. I havent seen a real-world application that needs 3ghz of CPU processing power!!!!

    just my :2cents:
