Feel free to correct me on this for Intel's Desktop offerings. ( Processor Specs @ Intel: http://processorfinder.intel.com/scripts/default.asp )
    That may be the case, but I seem to remember some issue related to hyperthreading that would increase cache latency and slow down cache access. I also wouldn't put a whole tonne of faith in a document that simply lists the cache speed as identical to the core clock listing (for a P4 2.40A, "2.40A GHz").

    I'd love to get my hands on a dual Opteron board with AGP 8X support, unfortunately it puts the systems well outside of my price range.

    Is your whole family retarded, or did they just catch it from you?

    True. Haha, I didn't catch that one


    I'd love to go Opteron also, but I couldn't afford it. So I voided a few warrenties and built a monster dual 2.45GHz AthlonXP-M (1.35volt 2400+ mobile processor overclocked by leaps and bounds) system. With a bit of watercooling that I'm planning later this year, I'd expect to run this at 2.5GHz or higher. For $80 per processor, I think I'm close enough to the performance (if not beating it) of a low-end $200 Opteron 2xx processor to be the winner here. For the cost of my entire system, you might be able to buy a single Opteron 240 processor, a decent motherboard, maybe a 512MB stick of RAM, and a cheap HDD...

    I would guess my 45 Mhz e-mail server needs ..... updating?

    Ah, I crack myself up.

    we dont really know what will happen in this coming 2005
    but on my own opinion i think Intel will focus on this 64 bit processore and forget the old one's (i mean is will focusing on this new technocrap)= less heat & whtsoever ....I wish.....
    is there any 64 bit OS (windows xp and linux)..... ohh i think ill made one 128 bit
    <just kdding>!!!

    intel....
    so they can get the high rate in the market ...
    and AMD will adpt this or what? I think the AMD 64 blow intel.. naaahhhhhhhh
