    New AMD Athlon 64 - 939pin CPUs now available in 3000+ and 3200+

    New 90nm process...


    These look good for overclocking.

    Swee-eet.

    The benchies confirm my suspicion that the Via chipset outperforms the Nforce3 chip, but there's not much in it. Nforce4 may be a different story though.

    Did anyone notice the intel furnace puffing away in the background getting all hot and bothered but still not really able to keep up?

    Yeah. I heard that this can be an issue. I think the best strategy is to be clear with your provider that you expect the BIOS to support your chip. Be sure to mention all this before the purchase.
