Ok. I was just reading an article on Intels new Dual Core CPU the Pentium 4 EE 840. The article is on http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0,aid,120264,00.asp
They mentioned how these CPU's are due out in a few weeks and how there are plans by a few PC vendors to use them in there systems.
(DELL) was one that was mentioned. They are planning to use these P4 EE 840's in their new line "Dell Dimension XPS Gen5 gaming PCs".
This makes absolutely no sence to me what so ever. Benchmarks have shown that these new dual core CPU's performance is most noticable in multitasking and multimedia. There is no noticable increase in performance for single applications or "GAMING".
The XPS Gen5 PC is marketed as a "GAMING" PC. Why the hell would "DELL" use this CPU in that system. It just doesn't make sence. I could see using this CPU in a new Dell Media Center PC. This CPU is perfect for Media Center PC's.
I don't know. Correct me if I'm wrong, sometimes I am.
