But I never said there was a shortage of C2's. I just said they are still making pentium-4's. Now, who are they selling them to? Go look at major OEM's and see what processors they are using, Core 2's, and AMD K8's. Point being, they are still making Pentium-4's for whatever reason, when the market wants C2.
how much power do you think each of those machines do you think use up in a hour of work? Operators have to maintain those machines and are thus on call(most likely), people load them on trucks, people drive those trucks, people design and update the chips, there is a lot of people employed and thus payed.

Jori. Honestly dude you need to go read up before making your statements. No charge for labor? You think that nobody is there working? Intel and AMD need plenty of employees to operate. Intel is still MAKING pentium 4 chips? If they are, they must be selling them. You make it seem like Intel has some sort of problem here. They are not "making old stuff while people want the new stuff." Did you happen to notice the load of conroes/allendales that flooded the market? I havent seen a shortage yet.
nope i meant the fx(72's right) 4x4
