It should definitely be actual clockspeed. I would say 3400+ for the lowest-clocked model should be right, at least if it scales like that 800mhz sample did.

The Hammer chips will emulate 32-bit, but it should be lossless because they keep the x86 architecture. Intel's 64-bit mainstream processor won't use that tech though.

Arg

so many uncertainties.

One thing is certain though.

If hammer sucks, AMD is finished.

Simple as that.

None of its uncertain to me...I've read everything about the subject.
AMD will have an ass kicking processor. As to what Intel will have, I couldn't say.

Windows XP 64-Bit Edition will run on the Intel Itanium and AMD Hammer CPU as the platform for workstation users who are reaching the memory limits of 32-bit systems.

Windows XP 64-Bit Edition will initially support up to 16 gigabytes of RAM and up to eight terabytes of virtual memory. Physical memory support will grow in the future as hardware capabilities expand. Data in memory is accessed thousands of times faster than it is on a disk drive, so it boost your performance tremendously. Also, Windows XP 64-Bit Edition has been designed to take advantage of the superior floating point capabilities of the Itanium processor. But what about Hammer?
Dunno yet, but I'm sure Microsoft and AMD are working on it.

Cool

BAH! I don't care about hammer, probably just as unstable as any other AMD processor, I'm buying a 3.06 Ghz P4 anyways

My first Athlon (Classic) was unstable for a month or so when they released a new BIOS
My second Athlon (XP) gets too hot, which I can safely blame on it being close to my video card which I have concluded that the fan is practically dead on.

So you can safely say I've had no instability problems with AMD K7 processors that weren't brought on by something else.

So...
Bite me.

When an 800mhz model is beating a 1.6ghz P4 Northie, that means something.

I thought it was beating a 1.6ghz p4. not 2.4 ghz?

I'd never buy intel. they're crap. Ever since amd started copying their chips their versions have always been better.

I'm not interested in raw gh'z numbers. Clock for clock, all amd chips beat the equivelent class intel chip.

Maybe it was 1.6...actually yeah I think it was. But that's 2x faster clock-for-clock than Intel processors.
