Default New AMD CPU

Hey, when is the new 64bit AMD CPU supposed to come out?
I'd like to try the 64bit chip, but if its going to be changed in the near
future i'd rather wait a little

Which new cpu? The 64 bit Opteron was released in April of 2003. Since
then there have been many "new" 64bit cpu's.

Everything changes, always in the near future in this field.

Or possible early June. There is a big show in Taiwan in June where the
motherboards for the 939 pin part are expected to be announced.

yes i was looking for the 939, and i know everything changes, but if its
coming out in a month, i'd say its better to wait the month, and get a mobo,
that is going to have new cpus coming out for it for more then another
couple of months!!

I picked up the old style about a month or two ago. Although it's
limited, it works well enough that it'll be a viable system until it
dies of old age. I've got several systems, so there's always
something it can do for me. It runs as fast as anything REASONABLE
available and does it cooler and quieter than the others.

PS this was written on a P2B 700mhz system

Obsolete and worthless, eh ?

Nah. I have an old PIII 450 I still use. Granted, it isn't running Windoze
on it (currently dual booting Slackware and Mandrake 10), but even if it
was, it would be suitable for maybe just an internet machine or word
processor wink.

Not if if suits your need. But I would consider upgrading ASAP if you live
in the USA. (prices for motherboards and CPU's seem to be cheaper here,
from what I gather.)
