on the 15th:) cost?? About $815 :)

Looks to be another standard p4 800Fsb chip, but just with a 3.4 clockspeed. Doesnt look like an EE.

Should we get excited over it at 800$+ ?

Isn't Athlon 64 3400+ at half the prise ? :drooling: and faster :D

wtf?? $815??? Thats insanely over priced!

Thats more than the FX-51 and twice that of the 3400+, yet the 3400+ looks to theoretically perform better than it.

That's only a 6% clock increase, the 3200+ was 'on par' with the 3.2ghz P4 and the 3400+ had a 10% clock increase over it. So theoretically, the 3400+ will be 4% faster, and almost literally half the price:p

Oh well... i guess their yields on 130nm 3.4GHz parts isn't enough to supply the masses. I find this strange considering all the people claiming to hit up to 3.6GHz on stock voltage/cooling. If they launch the same time as the 3.4GHz prescott(provided it's not a paper launch, which along with the 3.4ghz EE, it's looking to be) demand shouldn't be too great anyway. And wasn't the 3.4Ghz prescott meant to be priced at $6xx or was it $4xx?

I'm not believing the price, but if that is the price, Intel truely must think they are invincible and don't need to react to AMD at all...

Intel make the most money from OEM's, OEM systems tend to be cramped and has little air flow to make the computer quiet.

If we are talking XP's (and not A64's/FX), since when. The Athlon XP 3200+ is 'on par' with the 2.8C P4 not a 3.2. But there are instances when the 2.4C beat the crap out of it.... :D

Of course i'm not talking XP's:rolleyes: There will be no 3400+ XP, so when i mention 3400+ i mean A64. should have perhaps mentioned it with the 3200+ part, but eh, i'm getting lazy:p XP is gone.. i wont even bother talking about how it should compare with upcoming top-end P4's.

Fair enough ;) I was getting interested then, i was starting to think that AMD might bump the XP's upto 3400+ as a final death throw. :D

It's possible i guess.... ;) The XP line has plenty of life left in it :D even if it is pushing years.

*EDIT*

Checked out the 3400+ review on tomshardware, id say the 3400+ is more like 'on par' with the 3.2Ghz P4. God help them when the 3.4Ghz P4 arrives. I was actually quite dissapointed with those results :( the only thing the 3400+ deserves its 3400+ name is with some games....
