AMD's new Athlon 64 2000+ LV at 1GHz beat the Intel Atom at 1.6GHz, also the AMD chipset (780G) and CPU combo is more energy efficent, plus it's easier to passively cool. The CPU will be a regular AM2 socket so it could be used in a desktop easily (but the starting price is somewhat high at around $90).

High at $90...

Really... Question

I would have thought that's a hell of a lot cheaper than many Core 2 Duo's..

I might be wrong, as it might not be a fair comparison.

Ps.. Are you intending to make up a pc of your own based around this new AMD ?

Compared to the price of the Intel Atom board with soldered CPU it's high, and no, if I had money to spend on it I would consider it and probably wouldn't still since all the boards are micro-ATX that are reasonably priced so it wouldn't be small like I would like it to be.

Whoa...there ... DJ.

Now you got my attention.....

Since when has the CPU been soldered on ?

Surely not...

That's gotta be kinda dumb for Intel.

Why on earth would they want to do such a thing...?

I would have thought locking it down to a CPU is going to limit the market appeal overall...

It makes me wonder what their reasoning would be...?

In the meantime, it leaves me a bit puzzled.

Oh well

Maybe you can explain it to me.

Cheers
