Went out to Discotek Necromantica tonight. Didn't really dance, was more of a social call than anything else.

Glad I went. I got a job. At a club, doing security... Starting in January. More details to follow at some point.

Intel releases new chip. 2MB of L3 cache... and the Athlon64 still stomps it fairly effectively in most areas. I'm impressed with AMD now...

SNIP:
Perhaps it's a stopgap solution until the 'Prescott' core is readied; maybe Intel will continue manufacturing Extreme Edition processors. Nobody really knows. However, the fact remains that Intel recognizes a market for high-end processors targeted at power users. AMD's Athlon 64 FX-51 is the pioneer in this market (AMD did unlock its flagship processors for easy access to overclocking controls, after all); however, Intel's willingness to compete on the same battlefield promises to ignite a rivalry of epic proportions.
