<A HREF="" target="_new">@ Newegg</A>, 1.8 GHz, 512 KB L2 cache, $173

IMO, it's more likely to perform like Prescott 2.8 rather than Northwood "C" 2.8

I think in games it would be faster then a P4 3GHz, but we have to wait for benchmarks for this one.
This would make a good overclock CPU, maybe im gonna buy this one instead of waiting for socket 939.

Priced a bit under the P4 2.8's even. Paired with a NF3-250 board, not bad at all. I'd like to see some benchies too, although we have already seen that P4 vs. A64 benchies totally depend on the individual test and nobody can really claim one is outright better than the other. Still very nice to see A64 chip for well under $200.
When will it go under $150? :wink:

Interesting, but I found a preview of A64 2800+ on xbit lab( which was only 1.6G but with 1M L2 Cache. Are there 2 version of 2800+?
