    The Geode has 1 serial PORT not PORT(S).
    Done..., three RS 232 ports too.

    So we've gone from none, to 1, to 3. What else is wrong with the Geode I wonder

    I couldn't care less, but when someone is wrong on the Internet...

    Anyway.

    Phenom II 920 and 940 which are cheaper than Intels 920 and 940 but with higher clock speeds, we know what AMD's up to

    I'm with whoever performs... that's why I'm a "Performance fanboy"

    ATI has best performance? Okay, good, give me it. nVidia? Okay!

    Intel? AMD? I used to love AMD and always thought of them as the gamer's Cpu... but... now they adopted ATI... and I like nVidia because ATI's usually run hotter and I think are relatively more unstable, whereas nVidia can have smooth high oc along with compatible intel boards, which as for the x58's it seems that ATi is relatively incompatible with... which supports my decisions and opinions.

    I can see what your saying but the fact that AMD is hoping to really shine in the non-consumer market makes this a pretty relevant subject matter as the devices can be used in automation and control systems when serial ports are present.

    I'm holding out for some consumer based benchmarks before I make a decision on my next CPU, I don't think Intel are worried though.

    I wont be getting a i7 and ddr3. Not unless i'm selling a kidney or two. And x58 motherboards for 300quid?

    Sorry. No thanks. My system maybe 10% slower... but its a damn sight cheaper. Yay for AMD.

    Exactly. The nice hope with AMD is that there will be some fast chip in the future that'll still work with your same motherboard, rather than having to update most of a computer just because you've gone to the next generation of chips. But then, if they'd carried on with socket 939 a bit longer perhaps they wouldn't have lost so many customers to Core 2

    this. although it wasn't a bad time to introduce am2 they should have kept 939 alive for longer than they did, they have pretty much said they cocked that up slightly in interviews since and the am2 - am2+ - am3 transition is looking so much better

    Until then it is all speculation. If Phenom II does perform well against Core 2 it will be interesting to see how Intel react.
