does anybody know an official release date of these platforms?

I think a P3-500 will do over 4 with a Mach II GT


for the mobo question, answer lies here I think: http://www.x86-secret.com/articles/cpu/s939/s939-2.htm

somewhere

my mach2 gt.
still about a month, and then i'll first see what the 3.0 does.
if that ones goes over 4, I won't be upgrading


are these mobo's that were used socket 939 mobos?

what to think of this...

we see in gaming environments, the only reason for us mere mortals to buy these incessantly expensive machines, the advantage at the same speeds of the athlon socket 754 xp 3400+ over the socket 939 3500+. it seems the double cache wins out on the double channel at the same clockspeed...
quite an interesting thing...

we see the 3800+ having some advantage just due to its clockspeed. but as it will probably not overclock any further then a socket 754 xp3400+, it seems like a waste of money to go this way.

THE hot item is still a socket 754 a64 3200+ on some nice cooling
