    It is good news for Intel users, but for us AMD followers we know that the XP will come down alot when the Throughbreds come out. And from what I've heard the Throughbreds will not be very expensive either. So, I don't believe AMD will be "squeezed" by this "strategy" of Intel.

    I agree with you Super. And not long after that, which is only about 7 months away, Hammer will come out. Now that will be a day of reconing !!
