Lol I agree with you. But like I said sometimes you have to pick something over another due to issues. Whatever they may be. Granted Intel maybe better at gaming. But I still prefer AMD just cause the three or so I've owned all have done well.

Yeah, I'll stick with AMD because they are a better corp (to me) than Intel. By the time I upgrade (at least 12months...) AMD should be on the top again

Lol, yeah thats the spirit we need I'm actually upgrading this Christmas, I don't need no fancy quad-core to be happy. (I need to keep some money around) I like the dual-core AMD has out now anyway
'bout time.

The second-gen tech clocks up to 400MHz
From 400MHz up to 3GHz there's some way to go, unless AMD would use 10MB cache at nearly a tenth of the speed of the CPU. This tech may be well suited for low power application that work at very low speed, but there' a long way before seeing it on CPUs.
Remember SOI? AMD licentiated SOI in 1999 (or 2000) but they got to use it only in 2003 on the 130nm process.

I guess it will really only be good for L3 cache.

So it could be possible that the K8L L3 cache is made of ZRAM...........

This stuff is also fairly new and under constant improvement I'm sure. They'll have plenty of room to increase the speed before it actually makes it's way onto AMD processors. I seriously doubt it'll reach a level of maturity where AMD will implement it into it's procs until at late 2009, not in time for K8L I'm afraid. Wait for it folks before buying a new system .....

Edit: It'll be dirt cheap to add as well.... mmmmm
