I have a Pentium 4 2.0G now and it works fine. Occasionally I miss my old P3 1G dually setup. I hate the pause or stutter when I'm printing or writing a CD. Anyway, is there anything new in the SMP world for Pentium 4s? Is there a DUAL P4 motherboard yet?
I don't miss my old Dually P3 1.26G setup because I still run it Works better for me than many of the single processor 2GHz+ P4 machines I have around. Instead of P4 Xeon why not go AMD? My home machine is a Dual AMD2600+ MP, works great and you'll get the processors and MOBOs much cheaper than Xeons.
WOW! A blast form the past. I posted this question 2 years ago There is still no P4 dually, except Xeons. I now have a P4 3.06 with HT, but I! suspect a true dual processor rig would be smoother. I could jump to AMD when it is time for the next upgrade, but hey since HL2 is smooth at 1280 X 1024, what's the need?
