ye si know and i knew when i bought ir.
but it's faster than my celeron 800 at 1066 was, and imho it's faster than
fastest p3 (1.1ghz) was at that times.
anyway i choose p4 for teh rambus thing, the most important bootleneck of
the p3 arch was the slow sdram speed.
even the p3 power was not used at 100% due to waiting for ram reads/writes.
if you work with big things (not fit into the cache) then it really
