If AMD manage to get this all done, finished and out on time, we might even have a close battle at hand... :)

Excellent article. Look like Barcelona could be a pretty even match to Core 2. Only time will tell, of course. Hopefully AMD will be able to update it's architecture more often this time around.

With all this talk of all this new hardware comming out i'm getting impatient just waiting for it. R600, 45nm intel, new amd core, proper implementation of directx10 along with vista. Its going to be a busy year.

You know what I want, I want free new technology. I mean it's wonderful that we are advancing every single year, but being even a mild PC ethuist is unrealistic. At least for people with little self control. By next year it sounds like everything will be a million times better, and nothing will even be completely utilized for what is here now.

The more and more I read, the more and more I lean toward just make this computer last real long.


It does sound real neat though.

Should be good. But I'm happy to play smart and wait for all areas to catch up before splurging on a CPU which cant be utilised properly by software - I'll stick with a CPU that can be fully and effectively utilised thanks.
