We all now about CG stepping improvements now it seems a lot more goodies in store untill K9...
Not sure about the source though... :tongue:

what stikes me, is how quick AMD is with SSE3. Its barely after intel (perhaps even before intel really ships prescott!). By comparison, it took them quite a while (even years) to implement MMX, SSE, SSE2. Granted SSE3 is not a big deal, but in order to roll it out this fast means they must have had specs way before they where public. Smells like a nice conspiracy here: intel and amd sitting around the table, and MS being the moderator ? IOW: intel will support AMD64, and drop Yamhill, in return MS and Intel will give it another name (not AMD64), and AMD gets early access to the specs of intel's upcoming extentions. Does that not sound unreasonable ?

*Cue Twilight Zone music*

It makes sense, AMD has something Intel wants and Intel has something AMD wants. They would both be incredibly stupid not to work with each other to produce better products.

I've been told that "paranoid" is redundant in a sentence with Intel, so I think not.

1) I didn't see any timelines mentioned. While I doubt it, it could be 2 years before they support SSE3 for all we know.
2) News flash - Prescotts are not only shipping, but in stock at places like NewEgg: <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?DEPA=0&submit..." target="_new">Prescott</A>. Sure looks like shipping product to me...

Shipping may have been the wrong word, maybe he ment selling. Who would be dumb enough to buy a presscott hotplate?

I don't doubt it. The man said on the next cpu update meaning the soon to come .09 micron not two years. He also said in the beginning of vid they made room for extra compliers to be implemented.

If I glanced at a spilt box of tooth picks on the floor, could I tell you how many are in the pile. Not a chance, But then again I don't have to buy my underware at Kmart.
