LINKKKKKK

i have a p4 socket 775 or whatever, and it is 3.0 ghz and 1024k l2 and a 16 sumthin l1

This here will have a bigger cache and it is the same speed.. so will dual core be better than what i have? and is it worth the money?

just start saving and then one day go online shopping crazy and BAM... you have your dream machine!! dont get your hopes down...just start saving and the prices will come down some to from where they are now, so it will be a little cheaper when the time comes

uh, you can close the thread yourself, under thread tools in the upper right hand part.

WAIT: you need to reformat your C: drive, not your D: (recovery drive)

cant close... must need more rep

oh its some new super 1337 cpu they are working on and its supposed to be really powerful and use less energy and run cooler... i dont know much about it though

Intel is completely dropping the P4 architecture and is redesigning an entirely different chip. The P4 design wasn't a good one for them and is at the peak of how far it can go. Haven't you noticed that they haven't released higher clock speeds even with the smaller transistor sizes? Anyways, Intel has been sitting in second place for a long time, but this new core should put them back ontop if everything goes well. It's still too early to say for sure, but the early performance estimates that it will beat the new AMD cores based on DDR2. It's all cycles, Intel will be on a brand new core and AMD is at the end of theirs. Both companies will battle back and forth as time goes on, but I really think that Intel will have the fastest chips before the end of summer. You might not see an increase in clock speeds, but the new Intel cores will complete more instructions per clock cycle than the P4 line did, so performance will be much higher even at the same clock speed.

You're confusing transistor size being smaller with actual chip size. A smaller transistor has several advantages to a larger one. It will consume less power, which in turn generates less heat, which in turn allows for higher clock speeds, etc (all generalities). The really nice thing about transistor sizes being shrunk even further is that they will soon consume so little power that they will be included in more and more devices. How nice would it be to walk to your refrigerator and have a built in lcd screen with infinite recipes at the touch of a button? Or how about a preset shower temperature with multiple setting configurations so each person can have their own. That could include shower head angle,temperature, even timed shower. The possibilities get exciting if you look at where technology is going.

wow, that sounds cool. but they should just make a big chip with a jillion transistors and have it uberfast
