What's next? Dual GPU video cards? That I'd like to see.

P.S.; Paul, I'd give you a REP+ for post # 22 but it won't let me, something about I need to spread reps before I can give you another. Oh well!
Dual GPU video cards are already around, but not in the sense I think you mean

Seems as though your a little behind on the new technology. javascript:winopen('http://www.dell.com/html/us/products/renegade/renegade.html?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs','popup1000x70 0','WIDTH=1000,HEIGHT=800,RESIZABLE=YES,SCROLLBARS =YES,TOOLBAR=NO,LEFT=0,TOP=20');

thats the power of four...quad SLi

But that would be silly, since it is well known that AMD's lower clock speeds are due to the higher ops per clock cycle and generaly higher efficiency. And the lower L2 cache is because of the much lower latency because of the on-die memory controller.

The plural of "die" is "dice".... that's why you roll one die, not one dice.

I think it is dies and not dice.
Very nice!

It was a point to be made... It really doesn't matter, because nowon here wants the mindless and ignorant flame wars.

Yes, you red my mind. That's not what I meant and that thing cost $819 here in the U.S., even if I had a crap load of $$$ to spare, I would never buy that.

Dual Core GPUs, I wonder if that's ever going to happen. GPUs are getting more power hungry than ever and on top of that they're running hotter.

I also wonder how they're going to pull Quad-Cores off, in terms of heat and power?

Is Conroe just a quad core series? I thought there were cheaper ones that'd cost less?
