SubjectRe: Dual Athlon XP 1800+ on Tyan Thunder K7 or Tiger MP anyone?
actually (having had my hands on 1.2GHz t-bird and MP boxes) the MP does
appear to be noticably faster per clock then the t-bird version. the new
XP is supposed to be the same core as the MP (just different marketing) as
I understand things.
