Hello:
Will we be able to use the new 1800+ in a dual configuration with the Tyan boards (or others when they come out)? Has anyone done this yet? Thanks

The XP are not officially SMP capable, but AMD is releasing a 1800+ version of the MP today I believe.

yes, it was released, performs quite well in progs which run well on dual processors (98% increase over a single 1800+ XP in one case!!!) but for the likes of high resolution quake 3 and the like the single chip tends to exceed the performance of the MP

if in doubt blame microsoft...

Where did you see that? I didn't think there were any reviews out yet.

The MP performs horribly compared to the XP in many cases! Go for a single processor system, b/c with the Tyan, any app that doesn't support multiple processors won't perform as well.

U got a problem?! Then dial 1800-328-7448!

Flame that is pretty common in SMP systems. It really depends on your needs as to whether a duallie is right for you. Even if performance is *hit* in some apps, if those apps aren't being used on the system, the user won't notice it. BUT, the user will notice that that 3D rendering program works WAY fast!
