eh dean? ano magandang bilin? medyo IPIT eh

if someone buy an Athlon XP today tapos ilang months lang yun na yung budget processor, eh di nalugi siya sa Price ng Athlon XP since iniexpect na bumababa ang price nya.

eh yung duron hindi na nga

OK lang naman ang duron pag wala kang budget. Ang ok sa mga bagong socket A boards, supported pa rin niya ang Athlon XPs.

kaya pala bumabagsak na prices ng mga XP.. goodie! :)

Imagine a world without AMD! :) siguro ang mahal sobra ng mga Intel processors! :) and siguro nasa Pentium 1 palang tayo ngayon... hehe
these competitions are really benefiting us consumers!

the athlon xp will remain to have 128kb of L1 and 256kb of L2.  they're probably gonna kill the duron and move the palomino core to the low-end part. 

they would probably do the same as intel...make a 512kb l2 cache version of the athlon xp and ma
