I don't know if all of you have seen the Toms' Hardware article on the new Clawhammer from AMD, but here it is if you haven't: http://www6.tomshardware.com/cpu/02q1/020227/index.html Basically the jist of the article is that the new Clawhammer chip will be in 64 bit architecture, and be able to support software from 32 bit machines (pretty cool I think). It has the new 0.13 micron chip technology used in the P4's and soon there will be a 0.09 version of the Clawhammer (by soon I mean maybe next year, if we're lucky . I was just wondering if you guys think that AMD's newest CPU is going to be able to perform up to par with Intel? Can AMD hold out and gain even more market share with their newest CPU? Personally, I hope they can because I have a 1.4 gig T-bird and I couldn't be happier with it! And I believe Intel is ripping people off by not clocking the P4 at what it should be running, and instead underclocking it and charging insanely high prices for it. Just my opinion though, what's yours?
