livn4metalhurray for intel for jumping on the amd banwagon. but if recources are tru, 64 bit p4's will be about the same price as 32 bit p4's, which will dramatically help the market. hope their not talking about the p4ee's...

read xeno's post. Also, AMD or Intel weren't the first to have 64-bit chips on the market.. companies like SGI or Sun had them for over a decade.. no one but tech heads knew about them though because they weren't meant for home use. How did Intel jump the AMD bandwagon?

5$ says they come out dead even to the point where only true chipst developers can argue over real differences. The general crowd will argue over benchmarks, and no one will ever agree on which is better. Kinda like now...

n0eSoon, the 64-bit Prescott's will be upon us, and we'll be able to finally have comparisons of who's better in the 64-bit arena. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2004/05/28/intel_64b_prescott/

w00t! Now lets see if AMD can come back with a hit..

I think he means an even better one ;)

Lets hope it encourages the two companies to build even better ones in competition until the technology is so advanced that what we think is good now, will be obsolete in a year or two :nodding:

um, no.. again... as xeno pointed out, AMD WAS NOT the first to have a 64-bit chip.. what's the change? NOTHING. There are no programs designed for 64-bit use currently made for home pc's.. it's all being emulated in 32-bit mode. Intel is not arriving late in the game.. if anything it was AMD. Intel is just releasing a 64-bit cpu for the home market. and even THEN, the only program that will utilize the 64-bit processing that anyone here will use is WinXP 64, which no one has yet.

Yes, I know about linux-64. :P but think about what I said here and you'll understand that I'm still correct. ;)
