Ok yea...2100+ release date tommorow, but the question is...do we really care? An increase from 1.67 GHz to 1.73 Ghz...not much. When is AMD going to take that leap foward that will really put the distance between it and Intel. Once AMD makes the performance jump over Intel, and its prices still being low, then and only then will it really do something.
I dont really care. All I wanna know is why AMD haven't released thier Thouroughbred yet. I am wondering if they have decided to include some last minute enhancements i.e making sure that it is 166 FSB compliant ?!?!? as and when 166FSB motherboards are released in the coming months. Your guess is as good as mine.

Don't really care. I think only reason AMD is releasing this is they are having some issues with their .13u production and they have to fill the gap between now and when they release T-bred. They will announce this processor but I think it will be available in very limited quantities.
mmm no, not as far as pure speeds go.
we all know they are still very compeditive with the opposition, and the new speed grade will just increase that factor with a slightly faster flagship and cheaper models down the line.
i believe we are all waiting for thouroughbred with alot more intrest.
still, amazing what amd is squeezing out of the 0.18 micron process
I love helping people in Toms Forums... It reinforces my intellectual superiority! :smile:
i agree that AMD's doing a great job with the .18 micron and can't wait for the .13 thoroughbred and hammer. AMD, imo, is just releasing these faster AXP's because, well they have them and dont wanna waiste em? Also maybe to not leave a gap in the PR rating for when the thoroughbred comes out. Heh who knows what AMD is doing for sure, all we can do is wait or get whats the fastest today and have it be outdone tomorrow, you make the choice..
