    Not gonna buy it, but at least it will lower prices of other CPUs.

    For the world's sake, I hope the CPU sucks.
  8. This CPU is a fully-licenced MIPS-compatible CPU. A quick look at Wikipedia will give you the facts. As opposed to speculation and silly generalizations.

    I think you're missing the point of why people are so against things made in china.

    The number one reason, China is not the only country that can produce products. Which is why I am appalled at the idea that most everything has a "Made in China" label attached. I wish Import and Export taxes was so high it would force local manufacturing if possible.

    Why? Competition can't be a bad thing, especially as it's becoming more and more of an Intel monopoly nowadays in the desktop segment.

    Have a read of this very interesting NYTimes article, it's not all about cost or import taxes or currency manipulation, etc.

    lets face it Europeans/Americans wont work like the Chinese not as fast as china not as cheap as china and quality wont be better its not as simple as that high taxes = higher prices etc.. bad for biz :p

    I will choose not to respond to that statement, which I find just as appalling as my previous statement.
  18. Where ever the product is made the quality will be the same but china has the most workforce in the world so they can make more and faster, also china has more resources for making if u plan on making the product outside asia the cost of production will be higher making retail price higher is stupid idea to build it within there own country business wise unless there rich in resources and have a large workforce with lower salery then normal cause there country has alot of unemployed. sadly china population to large for there own good in some ways

    IDK where you live, but me and many, many other Americans have a hard time sending any much more money to China than factories, companies, and the government already have.

    I think Chinese chips are superior in some ways - they are often crisper, arguably less fatty, and a more uniform golden-brown than the traditional "British Fish & Chip Shop" type, but perhaps still lacking the authentic flavour of the latter.

    Can't agree with you, thin crispy fries for me every time! ;)
  22. ...and for those of us not living under the yoke in the bible belt, the location that goods are manufactured in is irrelevant.

    Each to their own :) - I think the "Chip Shop" chip maybe tastes better because it is traditionally fried in lard, therefore is unhealthy and so a little "naughty"? Certainly the location that they are fried in is irrelevant (bible belt, China, Steeple Bumpstead etc. etc.) assuming the presence of a deep-fat frier.

    Yay Zoltan! Any views on which chips are best with eggs? (in case you live under the yolk in the bible belt) ;)
