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

Oddly, the P4 and Athlon both seem to get an equal performance boost going from Win2K to WinXP...

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

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.
