But what else is different in the Palomino? Besides being organic or whatever lol! Why would I want one over a TBird?

Here's a good link: <A HREF="http://www.cpureview.com/rev_amdmp_a.html" target="_new">AMD Athlon MP/760MP Analysis</A>. It talks about the Athlon MP which is also based on the Palomino core. The Desktop version will not be certified for MP use, but will have the same features.

It will dissipate about 20% less heat (in other words, not run quite as hot as Thunderbird), have hardware prefetch (very important), and implement Intel's SSE instruction set.
