from what i gather doser will be a multi-threaded freak. having said that allusion, i don't expect it to match the per thread per core performance of whatever intel will have out the door then. but if the murmurs are correct, unless you surf the net or check email and do actual threaded work with it? sweet jesus. the pricing will be ,unfortunately, an issue if said performance is there as well.right now, amd doesn't charge more for cpus to remain competitive, at least in the low to mid end. if intel had slower cpus, trust me we would pay a good chunk more. remember the first a64's? don't think it cost them 300 dollars for producing one chip, from planning,to developing, to production, followed by pr and 'my e-pen is bigger because it has 64 bit take that!' .... :)
