I don't see why they even needed to call it a new stepping. To me, a stepping would be after the release of the product, as a way to enhance. Since Prescott is not out, I don't understand why even say they're switching and updating steppings. Kinda like ATi affirming it is cancelling the R400's design and advancing it, now calling it R420. It's ridiculous. The only people who know there will be change to the architecture are the people inside ATi. Telling us this and changing model numbers is just pointless IMO, if you see what I mean.
lets move on.... i will wait till the official delay date b4 i comment further
Aw Pope, we're really going to miss your PRESS<b>H</b>OTT bashing!
My OS features preemptive multitasking, a fully interactive command line, & support for 640K of RAM!
Scotty on fast track to be released on target date.
I think what they are saying is that scotty will be released at 103 watts and the stepping will be when they lower that.
Actually, they must inform us about this because it's known that prescott runs very hot... why? I don't know. But if they say nothing about that we will have the idea of prescott=hot and that's not what they want. So... telling us they are working on it means that the final product will run cooler that what've been said. If this is not the reason... they want us not to forget about Prescott. god damnit, by the time I buy my new 2.4C they'll release this new prescott and my computer will be old again!!!
What are you waiting for!!!! Buy the 2.4C all ready I did.
