You're forgetting something; two days to AMD K6-3D. AMD's Slot1 entry. I'm
taking the chance that it MIGHT not have cpuid enabled by default for some
bizzare reason. NEVER assume things like that; the manufacturers will
usually do the exact opposite. ;) And if Intel even looks at Socket7
again, I think I'll wet myself. They're so intent on proprietarizing every
little thing they do, I seriously doubt they're even looking back. If
anything, they're probably screaming and yelling "we should have
proprietarized socket7! now we can't exploit it any more!!" *smirk* :)
