    it got bug, performs lower than expectation,
    intel had held its shipment,
    better shift to AMD athlon 3000+, cheaper and better.

    Thats not the chip you think it is. The one just released is on a 400mhz bus - there is an existing 3.06 ghz chip that has been out for a few months and works fine.

    i think it refers to some batch of production that got flaws.

    I think get an XP1700+ and overclock it to 3000+ levels. Seriously, why pay more for faster when u can pay less !
