Man does that little fucker fly. Socket 478 / gallatin core. If i ever fell into $800 i would be all over one. Does anybody else have experience? Out of curiosity, how do the 6xx series with 2mb L2 match up?

Honestly, i've never experienced anything so smooth. I was doing some 3d rendering on it. It was quick, super responsive, and just felt tight as a drum. Even just booting up and starting the program was blink of an eye quick. And that's with a very mediocre system around it (no raptors or anything.) Wish i had some bucks for something like this. A powerful computer to a nerd is like a high powered rifle to a hunter. It's empowering just sitting in front of one. :p





Damn i'm lame. :p

Still too similar, puddy makes you happy. More like knife and sprinting.

Not well at all. For that matter, they are only sometimes better than the 5xx series, clock for clock. In many scenarios, they do worse, clock for clock.

Just out of curiosity, do you know how much power it uses and what temp the CPU runs at?

I share your feeling, although I have never used a Intel P4EE. I just upgraded from a Pentium 3 800Mhz, which was "ok" (had it for 5 years), to a AMD Opteron 252 @ 2.6Ghz. Boy, it sure can feel a bit faster. Especially when you can't seem to get UT2004 under 150FPS :D. And that's running at 33ºC 100% load with the windows open.

Yeah, Gallitin Core would be sweet. In effect its a Northwood Core but with L3 Cache. You got the "short" 20 Stage Pipeline (Short compared to pressy) You got Low latency L2 cache (Not like the 2MB of the 6xx series), And you have a higher latency L3 cache, but its very Large.

Too bad they dont go back to that core, All they need to do is add 64 Bit support and SSE3 and it would deffinatly be sweet a 65nm....
