    The bartons wont be on different sockets, they are just the .09u XP's. Anyhow, they have been on socket A for a fair while now, but just because the socket is changing doesnt mean upgrading to the P4 is going to be better. Especially when you consider that a clawhammer clocked at 800MHZ outperforms a P4 williamette clocket at 1.6ghz

    Anyway, i wouldnt trust that they will stick on 478. Not after that 423/478 confusion

    HOLY CRAP!!! I wonder what Intel has to counter this. Anyway thanks for all your help. As once I get my report card, I'll be gettin new computer wit Athlon Xp 2100+ will be

    I'm not surprised AMD is milking the Socket A platform for all it's worth. They stuck to Socket 7 for quite awhile. The Slot A platform was probably their shortest-lived platform, but they still tried to keep consumers from getting totally screwed.

    A lot has changed since last year when "Barton" was to be a 0.09micron SOI part as seen in this latest roadmap from AMD
    <center><img src="http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/styleone/roadmap060502.gif"></center>
    with "Barton" just being an upgraded 0.13micron part with 512KB L2 cache but "Clawhammer" should be out soon after relegating the now Athlon line to the budget PC market where it will take over from the Durons though socket A will be with us for some time yet. The 0.09micron SOI version of the "Hammer" family has been delayed till later next year now. :smokin:

    Yep. i heard durons are being phased out, and once the hammers are in, obviously they will be marketing the XP's towards the budget crowd. But when you consider there is still the whole range of T-Breds and Bartons to still come out, socket A is not nearly dead, one thing that is dying/dead is 100MHZ FSB Chips. No real loss there. How far are the XP's going to go up to (in terms of PR Ratings not clock speeds) 3100+? when you consider how long the T-Bred has been delayed, i think XP's will still be around for a long while now

    The sad fact is they probably wont need anything to counter this. As intel still has the masses believeing their chips are the better choice because they are clocked higher, therefore people will believe the intel P4 2.4GHZ is going to be faster than the clawhammer at 2GHZ (which has a PR rating of 3200+) when in actuality the hammer will drill the P4 np questions asked. You wouldnt believe how many people completely disregard the PR rating system used by AMD and just judge the quality of the chip based on its clock speed, people figure that because the 1700+ is clocked at 1470MHZ, a P4 @ 1.5GHZ will outperform it, when in reality the 1700+ will kill the P4 @ 1700MHZ.
