Tom: Do a CPU Poll

I think Toms should do a poll to see what chip you run on your home computer. From the forum, sounds like a ton of AMD users, but those Intel freaks could just be hiding out. Maybe a GPU poll could follow it. Think it would be kind of interesting.

TBird 800 - Asus A7V 1005a
256 PC133 - Maxtor 45GB ATA100
Radeon 32DDR - SB Live MP3+

Did you ever realize that Tom's is a little slanted towards AMD?!!! He did do a good review of the PIV and I am glad of that. I have respect for his work. Why isn't AMD getting hammered on the 760 DDR chipset? Hmmmm

Just maybe that is why not very many Intel people here.

1MB ATI RageII+ Built in 2d (ugh)
Diamond monster (original Voodoo, 4MB:) 
etc etc

3) IBM 770ED laptop

4) Old IBM Pentium 200 Laptop, not even sure whats all in there:) 

5) Cyrix 586-100 Mhz, 16MB RAM... that thing is being given away as we speak:)

That's a LOT of different CPUs :smile:

Why should they? They made the first, new successful DDR chipset. It's only Gigabyte that had a problem, and they admitted that it was their fault. Not AMD ;p
