amd's budget isn't as big as intel is to go into research. amd processors always had heating issues which get hotter with higher clock speeds. and then there is the design of the actual chip which makes this a little harder for advanced micro design to accomplish.

don't worry, the 90nm core will solve most of your questions.

You know, the Athlon XP was rediculed like that.

Amd's FX-53, reagardless of low clockspeed, wrecks havoc on the best intel cpu on gaming benches. Even the 560 3.6 loses to the FX-53. Alot of gamers look forward into performance rather than speed. It's all about how smooth a game runs and how it is a lag free environment. Game loading time comes right after that.

lol.. thanks guys for the info

Now that i know a little more about it, could i ask you a question?

is there a way to know instructions per cycle or is it the same throughout all AMD cpus???

Mine says it's 1.8 ghz ( 9X200) multXFSB in the bios and other

programs. Does is it mean it's wrong??

The 64 bit runs slower? Why is that? Or am I just interpreting it wrong.
