It's OK, measured any other way, it's only 1200 workers.

But they have four, so it's all good.

Csb time.

I swore off AMD back in 2002 when they admitted to selling defective Athlons to Sony for their Vaio line. Defects were in the SSE unit, so Sony decided to add a little check in the bios to mask that instruction set. Fast forward to 2006, where I almost threw the thing in the trash because a program did its own cpuid and slammed the cpu with SSE instructions. The only evidence of this bullshiattery was on their Japanese website.

It doesn't stop there. In 2006 I built a computer with the first generation X2. You know, the one with a defect in the CPU timer. so any multithreaded applications that requested cpu time in just the right way could cause the system to seize. Java was unusable.

Because of BS like this, I'm skeptical of any AMD out there now. My luck sucks.

as long as they don't cut my Phenom II 4 core black edition CPU clocked up to 4.070Ghz per core on stock voltages and stock heatsink, i'm ok with it.


Intel who??

i've had nothing but good futune with them. have never used Intel procs. and i've spent, on average, one half the cost of an equivlent speed Intel CPU.

i'll always stay AMD unless Intel buys them. ):
