Announcement: 1 for 3 in real improvement
Quite a lot happening on the PC front. Intel announced their new 775 pin socket, new chipsets and new Pentium 3.6GHz. The amazing thing is that with all that technology, it ain’t faster than the current generation or the Athlon 64 in many cases. That’s amazing.
AMD also announced their new 939-socket family. Some slight performance improvement in the 2-5% range for the new socket. They now have dual channel ram but that doesn’t seem to help much. The pricing is about the same and they did announce new 3500+ and 3800 Athlon 64s that are much faster and much pricier.
