Techbits

Greg
Techbits are a brain child of Greg Hess, who initially started them on the Discreet Forum, then moved them here to a permanent home; they are gathered, (chewed up) and processed by Greg Hess and Thomas Bruno, an all around good guys, hardware experts and 3DLuVr staff/contributing authors.

Article on Cbit. Important info about dual amd's and future of p4.



"As you can see in AMD's roadmap, AMD will introduce a SMP capable Palomino in second quarter for the workstation and server market. This Palomino has, of course, the same core as the desktop Palomino, which will be introduced in the third quarter. The only difference between Palomino desktop and Palomino Server seems to be that the server version has some typical "server" features (extra monitoring on die?). Both versions have 384 KB of cache (L1 + L2).



There is good and bad news for those who dream of a powerful dual CPU workstation. The bad news is that AMD does not support dual Thunderbird systems. Running two Thunderbirds on a motherboard based on the AMD-760MP might work, but AMD advises against it.

(Somebody on the net got one to 2.2 ghz. That would make it around 700 times
faster then a P4....am I exagerating? Or did Mir just smash into my house?)



To prove that point, 1.7 Ghz P4 vs 1.33 Tbird. (Yes its 700 times).
