Despite that…

I am going to upgrade my Windows PC. While I’m still defining what its role in my new production world will be, I have discovered it will take only a BIOS flash and some new memory to support running an AMD 3000+ versus the AMD 2000 I’m running now. I haven’t decided if I’m going to re-run the Cinebench tests using that CPU since the whole G5 vs AMD issue seems to be dead for now.

One interesting thing I discovered while doing my normal investigation into what bang I get for my money, I took a look at the AMD 3000+ vs the AMD 2800+. In some tests at Tom’s Hardware web site, the 3000+ was actually slower. For the money, the 2800 seems a much better value.
