    Actually, it's probably closer to:

    make cpu
    smp tests run ok? -------> No, sell as XP
    yes, do we have more demand
    for XPs than we have supply
    of those that didn't pass? -------> Yes, sell as XP
    No, sell as MP

    Remember, AMD is just trying to make a buck. If they've got a bunch of
    MP CPUs "sitting on the shelves" while no one can get their hands on the
    XPs, some of those MPs are going to "become" XPs. For those of us on a
    budget, we can only hope to get one of *those* variety of XPs.

    Now, that said, I'm probably going to buy MPs when I build my machine,
    as long as the price difference stays as the current low levels.
    Consider it a "warranty" or something.

    Just my $0.02
