In fact, they have a pure 64 bit CPU, it's called Itanium. In adition the Nocona has been released some time ago, which has EMT64 just like the P4.

So it's nothing new :)

This is their first 64-bit *desktop* CPU, but from what I've seen, it's not particularly impressive. The AMD64s beat these "new" P4s in just about everything, except maybe in overclocking capabilities.

I already got an AMD 64 anyway, so whats the point in getting an Intel - they cost more and aren't as good. Intel took too long on this one.
