Just out of curiousity...
What's everyone's opinion regarding the P-IV vs. the Athlon Thunderbird???
I really want it to do well...but I'm not sure...
I've been a loyal Intel customer for over eight years. If the P4 doesn't rip big holes in AMD's market share, I may defect.

I'm uncertain about the P4, the 20 stage pipeline worries me. Most certainly, the price of the chip will be much greater than that of the Athlon and I don't think that Intel will be able to competitively price it because of the incredibly large die size (twice that of the PIII). The chip has potential though. I will hold off making too many judgments until the chip is actually released and it's performance compared with the athlon thunderbird.
