Everyone is making their thanks to the Academy, their family, and to Intel, but which one would you buy now? The AXP or the Northwood? Personally I'd wait for the 133Mhz FSB Northwood to come out in a couple months before jumping on the Intel bandwagon again.
well if i had the money the northwood just cause it's better right now, IF i had the money i said. but since im not a spoiled rich bastard, the AXP is my choice and i would recommend it to the rest of my friends.
more bang for thy buck gives me better benches then matisaro
AMD all the way.
And besides, isn't 400MHZ FSB impressive? It just didn't come out right with the P4's bad performance before, so basically it ain't impressive anymore. I dunno but 533MHZ FSB is simply more ways to try to cover up the inside that is low-performing. And only bandwidth applications would really benefit, right?
I dunno about you, but I ain't going on the Intel wagon for a good while until they figure out how AMD thinks.
The other day I heard an explosion from the other side of town.... It was a 486 booting up...
I have no reservation about getting an AXP. Quite please with the results from building my own system with an Athlon 1800+. This year should be a good year for AMD now that there are chipsets that does the Athlon justice. This nForce motherboard I'm using is terrific! I'm looking forward to see what AMD has in store in future core revisions.
seems pretty unanimous... personally i wouldnt get either, theyre fast, sure but as soon as you get one its outdated. id wait for the thoroughbred, but then id wait for the next gen thoroughbred, they the thoroughbred XP... im happy with my athlon 800 o'ced to 945, i mean, who the HELL needs 280 fps in quake 3?
