The prescott wasn’t destined to the enthusiast people, it filled all the market ranges be it enthusiast or not, anyway what Intel or AMD fanboys say doesn’t really matter.
I was speaking of AMD (company) that kept speaking of the performance and power consumption lead of the AMD CPUs, all of the sudden they have a new policy performance at any cost… doesn’t that remind you guys of the NetBurst technology Intel developed and AMD despised so much… now I ask, will we call the AMD 4x4 systems the new nuclear furnace?
