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
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!
When all else fails, throw your computer out the window!!!
