actually, 22/7 is only an approximation. it's only correct for 2 digits if you make it a decimal.

*edit*
I think the main reason the Conoe is that fast in math is because of its cache...

If you remembered that number.....dude.

I hope Am2 can outperform this(currently impossible, but its only in really early stages though). __________________ e6300@2.8GHZ G. Skill 4GB(2x2GB) DDR800 eVGA 8800GTS 320MB super pi: 1m=20s

(not that it has yet, but it is very possible upon the release of the conroe and the other competitor cpus) AMD was not always the best you know. And neither was intel.......................... Things swing back and forth, and now it is intels time to shine Alright I am going to go to bed, flame me all you want. __________________ INTEL i7 930 ASUS P6X58D 3x2gb Corsair Dominators EVGA GTX 480 CORSAIR 850-HX

Cooooooool. As most people should know, it looks like the pendulum has swung back towards Intel. Now to sit and wait for it to swing back to AMD since I have no money now and maybe by the time it gets back to them I WILL have money __________________
