Wow that sucks. Hope AMD doesn't decide to follow.

It was actually AMD and Microsoft that came up with this idea. I don't remember the link though, sorry
I'm hoping NVIDIA (lol) will think about CPU production. I think the market has 1 more spot for a biggy like them :>

Maybe there's a hope for a real VIA CPU now!

good idea! Grab'em while you can! Kinda like the Celeron 300 (old timers will remember that overclocking gem)

I dunno though, Anti Piracy features built-in to a main CPU? Sounds a little fishy to me, Inquirer worthy. And even still who knows, maybe some motherboards will have a builtin feature to disable that anti-piracy nonsense. And if Intel is crazy enough to do this, it might open the market for even more competitors which means lower prices!!!

Hmmm... SIS CPU... I'd try it!

Putting that big brother crap into a processor is like having devices built into our vehicle to track our whereabouts. I can understand having the anti-piracy stuff built into software but putting it into a processor is sheer lunacy.

Most people fear privacy intrusions and the loss of liberty from our government - not many fear or suspect the real "sleeper" - big business.

Hey, Cyrix makes processors!

sounds crappy to me. If there's an alternative availible with similiar performance i'd buy it over that crap anyday. However, we may find outselves stuck with little option. In such case I'd go with what I always do, price/performance.

Regards,
Mike
