All I know is Cyrix chips have always blown. Someone has to be a moron to intentionally buy one of these things. The sad thing is the majority of people who get one have no clue that a 733 Cyrix is worse than a 600 Duron or Celeron, so they may go for it that way. I mean, how much typical savings will there be for a system? It looks like a Cyrix is only about $20-$30 cheaper than an equivicably clocked Celeron, for a $500 or so system. Big deal. That's not worth the risks. Plus, with integrated Socket A motherboards getting more popular (SiS 730, KM133), a complete Duron solution will get to be cheaper than that even. I mean, in the past I had this Cyrix 686 chip computer that totally sucked ass. It always froze, crashed, and was totally slow. I popped an old Pentium chip in the motherboard and the thing ran perfectly. But who knows, maybe with Via as new owner, the chip may actually be better.
