45W maximum for the 90nm opterons.. compares nicely to >100W prescott based Xeons or >120W Itaniums <A HREF="http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=12570" target="_new">http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=12570&lt;/A>

Intel is dead, stick a fork in their *ss and turn them over.

>>"If the reports turn out to be correct...

Yeah, that would rock <b>if</b> it were true. I'm really, really tired of giant HSFs and overheated puters.

I remember my PII was passively cooled.

Lots of people are reporting they are running their Athlon 64 with Cool and Quiet enabled fanless or mostly fanless when doing only moderate cpu intensive work. Using the Zalman cooler, apparently the fan kicks in from time to time while gaming, but even then never more than the slowest 1500 rpm speed. Thats about as good as a VIA Eden !

I think I'm more impressed with the Cool'n'Quiet technology than any other feature on the Athlon 64. No doubt this is something that has existed in laptops for some time, but as someone was saying earlier that this should have been in desktops a long time ago.

My thoughts exactly!
