Well, it all depends on the way you look at it. On the one side, escalation would give us a better chance to succeed in that theater, but would be ultimately costly. It seems that we do not want to lose particularly, but that we do not want expend the effort necessary to win this conflict. If the leadership doesn't make a strong decision one way or the other in this case, then we may be consigned to a long, drawn-out siege. The issue is partly that people from competing areas do not want our success to continue and are trying to stop any progress we might make. The major issue lies in our vacillation as a people and our inability to fly under a unified banner.
Celies? Nobody. Semprons? There still decent cpus for low budget rigs, there great for file servers and stuff like that.
I have a Celeron...
No seriously, though it does sell, but anyone who even knows the brand name probably won't buy it.
Semprons are quite close per clock to the A64's because A64's are virtually insensitive to the cache sizes. Though to cripple it even further there is no dual core version and is clocked significantly slower.
The Celeron 400 line based on the Conroe-L core should outperform the current Netburst based Celerons quite nicely.
-1MB L2 cache
-Sometime later this year with 1.6/1.8/2.0
