For those of you that haven't heard, new Bartons are factory locked, (not even wire tricks work with them.)

yup, its a fact

all of a sudden everybody will want to have older weeks, those hw vendors must be going crazy,
first the picky people want the newest, now they want old stuff

"the only way to increase your chances is to try to get a pre week 39 Barton..."

i think there going intel's way
i thought the A64 will have a 940 pins later on, like intel with their P4 in the beginning. so new cpu require a new mobo

the cheapest A64 in belgium is around 500, not every enthusiast is willing to spend that kind of money on a cpu :S
and still is almost 100 more expesive then the top P4 cpu

Need help, I need a new CPU, I was thinking about barton but...
All the ones we have are week 44, so ze're probably not going to get any newer ones.
As far as I know, my mobo will go up to 200FSB, leading to a nice 2200MHz OC, and 205 is a no-go.
My current main rig CPU does 2200MAX and it's just a 1800+.
Is it worth it, or should I look for something else (2100+ ulocked)?
Might the FSB be able te reach higher speeds with a barton, or won't it as I expect?

I thought only the xp2500+ was locked? If so, go for a XP2600+ barton.
