Tom's Hardware takes on 1GHz processors

Points worth noting

When the gigglehurts started to bubble at the beginning of last week, we thought it would probably take some time for a measured judgement on the AMD and Intel announcements, given the amount of PR flak generated. Now Tom Pabst has written a piece about the whole 1GHz affair which you can find here. In summary, the good doctor says that the race to 1GHz brings something of a smile to his face, but there are more serious issues involved. Tom takes a look at the benchmarks and points out a certain lack of scalability with the Athlon. He also makes an important point about the production lines for Intel's GHz technology, which we have also mentioned. ®
