I bet he uses the machine for pr0n video editing.
Urm - well yeah they do actually - Barton2800+ still dies every once in a while. Not often, mind you
No I can back WW up on the later AMD Athlon troubles. Hate to say it but AMD took some shortcuts when implementing SSE onto the later cores, esp TBred B cored. There have been crashes on normally stable sysems running stock speeds. Some WUs will not run on those CPUs but will others.
It's just not optimized, not mature like the important enterprise-class chipsets had to be for release.
I'd like to see ATI do a chipset for this as well, as they've got a P4 license I believe as well now. Would be cool to get some proper competition there.
It's a shame NV didnt get this chipset totally right. I reckon the VIA chipset might actually be better (scary right).
I just wish it would have folded me past t1rhino one last time
