I was wondering if we could all post some sites on previews/articles/reviews of the Palomino, nForce, Tualatin and the Northwood. I thought it would be a good idea to get everyone aware of these upcoming products and what their stats on paper/tested performance is.

Here are the sites I know of:

<A HREF="" target="_new">Quake Champ Thresh's Firing Squad's preview</A>
<A HREF="" target="_new">Wild_Andy's preview</A>
<A HREF="" target="_new">'s preview</A>
<A HREF="" target="_new">'s preview and comparison to the P4</A>

<A HREF="" target="_new">Tom's Hardware's Review</A>
<A HREF="" target="_new">a1-electronics's preview of the Tualatin</A>

<A HREF="" target="_new">a1-electronics's review of the P4 and preview of the Northwood</A>

I ran out of time getting links, but I hope others can share some of their sites too. I would like to be able to read some other sites that preview the above mentioned products as well as other products that have not been released yet. Thanks

  1. Why feed off of rumors? These guys are just guessing, based on what they hear from their rumor-mill.

    Case in point: Wild Andy reports the <b>Desktop</b> Athlon 4's core voltage to be 1.4v, while the Geek''s table shows it to be 1.75v (which BTW, is what the Athlon MP's core requires).

    That's a big difference with substantially different implications regarding mobo support, power consumption, and heat dissipation!
  2. Here's another link on the Palomino (MP in particular) that I think is good: <A HREF="" target="_new"> AMD "Smart MP" Introduction, Analysis, Review and Q&A</A>
  3. Actually I don't make any judgements about products until they are available and I have them at the store, then I play with them and see what is the best for myself. The links are just speculation based off stats which contradict each other as you mentioned with the voltage. I have also found conflicts in the number of transistors used, the amount and bus-width and latecy of the cache, the introduction bus speeds and the maximum potential bus speed.

    The thing that I found is that a lot of people on these boards seem to like these type of speculations and go gung-ho over these products which no one really knows about, but Intel/AMD, the Mobo/Chipset makers, large OEMs, and pre-box companies like dell.
