  1. Doesn't sound like significant optimizations. Sounds like support for SSE2 apps, SSE2 in DirectX and SSE (not 2) support in Networking.

    AMD technology + Intel technology = Intel/AMD Pentathlon IV; the <b>ULTIMATE</b> PC processor
  2. Oddly, the P4 and Athlon both seem to get an equal performance boost going from Win2K to WinXP...

  3. no link?no benches?

    btw networking does not get significant effect from the CPU, not under any case.

  5. Face it, Raystonn. You were intetionally trying to make people miss it by disguising it with the words "This link" :)

  6. o, just noticed it, this is really not such a big deal, untill software come SSE2 compatible/optimised AMD will put out the hammer...
    seems like this goes both ways..

  7. Rayy, lol, your first post sounded like an advertisement.

    Interesting info however, but like kelledin said, athlons and p4s gain about the same speed going to xp.
