Dunno about that. But the results can be extrapolated.

AthlonXP at it's normal speed vs northwood

Plenty of those out

Just perforn a few calculations and there will be a reasonnabl perf. estimate

Or you can run the same tests yourself.

The prog they used later in the article is available for download

Its all estimates at this point...its pretty safe to say that Hammer will scale up as the processor gets faster. Much as nobody would want to use an Athlon XP at 800mhz....y'know.

you're right. it was an 800MHz Hammer sample beating a 1.6GHz P4

and the Hammer was using CL2.5 DDR33

You guys are starting to convince me on the Hammer, I still have my doubts, but if the hammer turns out to be anything like what you guys are saying I will get one over a Pentium 4. But only if it is as stable as the Pentiums, I don't want any issues if I get one. At what clock speed will it be released at? and when? I might just buy one of both, you know... just for the fun of it.

It should definitely be as stable as the Pentium. Plus it is set to have a heatspreader!

as long as it doesn't burn thru the motherboard or cause my expensive video card, will be NV30 by them, to burn.

the .13micron paired with a heatspreader should keep them as cool as Intel's.

Youd be surprised at how many stupid stupid people are out there. Back when I was doing computer tech work, right when the Athlon 1ghz chips hit stores (The very next day actually).. a guy brought his PC in, complaining that it wasnt running.

I plugged it in, and watched smoke coming off the CPU.
I took off the heatsink, and sure enough.. the dumbass didnt take off the tape that covers the thermal compound on the heatsink. So, he screwed himself pretty bad. Needless to say, after he left we laughed about it for days. It still brings a smile to my face.
