I think the American and Japanese distributors get these at about the same time. But the American retail network is so established and completely in control by large corporations that all rules are obeyed strictly, whereas the Japanese network is less scrupulous in this respect and are therefore able to get the products released faster, perhaps quicker than Intel would like.
well i dont really care about the chip... just the 64 bit looked nice
i enjoy my xps performance...however I do like the new million dollar Voodoo envy... but for the little gain... im not interested in paying 5500.00
i have already made up my mind about getting a voodoo f5 hehe. that will be my next desktop but i dont need a desktop in the forseeable next couple of years at least...since my xps can hold up...but yeah when i am gonna buy a top notch machine it will be a desktop but from voodoo.
It\'s just a lower-end 64-bit single-processor designed for servers and workstations, not intended for home destops or notebooks. Xeon\'s and Itanium\'s are 64-bit also, but higher-end supporting multiprocessor apps.
hmm i dont think that will fit in our machines. even if it did no way am i putting that in my laptop. i am actually rather tempted to put in a 3.4 ghz northwood into my machine for better thermal performance and application performance.
