Will be launched on 23rd Sept. I hope price war Btw Intel and AMD will spark another round of price-slicing, so that I can buy a notebook with better price and performance.
But obviously, only for so long. In fact, Intel hasn't released anything about 64-but development, but it's strongly suspected that they have.When AMD comes out with their 64-bit CPU, only two will exist from large companies

bah with all this 64bit mumb jumbo. I'm not wasting a penny on this technology until I really need to use more than 4GB of RAM. As it is already, I don't see myself upgrading my hardware for another 10 years or so.
You mean Win2006. Longhorn, Microsoft's next version of windows, isn't do for a while. Perhaps they will release a Windows XP SE, just as they did with windows 98. I also can't wait for the new MS Office with really really advanced spell checking, requiring 10GB of RAMOriginally posted by Guybrush Threepwood

The article was far less negative than you indicate. The P4 was faster in 32 tests, the Athlon in 15.Originally posted by dduardo
The official toms-hardware review of the AMD 64 is in: http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/20030923/index.html
As I suspected from the beginning, the processor falls flat on its face. Intel is yet again the leader in CPUs.
Something else I didn't realize - that P4 hasn't been released yet (1-2 months). The Athlon is faster than the current fastest Intel chip in most of the tests.Originally posted by russ_watters
