Okay the new bad boy has been released and I should say with no fan fare. I still don't know if it will run on my system "A7V333 Motherboard" or when I can even buy it. Does anyone know more than this and if so can you share it with me. You know when you don't have THE toy you move on to another. this is a word of wisdom to AMD and there PAPER PROCESSORS!

More about : 2800

I called Gigabyte to ask if it will work on my GA-7VXRP and they said it "might," depending if they can write a bios for it. Right now, they do not have access to a 2800 to do any development/testing. Once this chip becomes a bit more popular, we will see. Besides, a month after it's released, (I mean when it's REALLY released) it will be a hundred bucks cheaper. It may be a good idea to wait a while before jumping to the Inte... or whatever the other place is called...

depends if your system bus will run stable at 166. i know my epox 8k3a+ will, and im fairly certain the asus baord will.

Most 333 boards are ready for the new FSB, this includes the ASUS A7V333. bios 1013 supports Fsb of 166 for A7V333.

Well if you don't mind to wait a little bit more (how much?), I guess you will be better with Barton CPU. Equal frecuency, 166FSB and 512 L2. But also, and IMO is important, double the surface so the heat will probably be better transferred to the HSF. So, lower temps and "maybe" more overclocable.

We will see ...
