Considering the benchmarks over at Toms Hardware, I'll be waiting for the P4 Extreme Edition. Especially since it's a heck of alot faster for the things that *I* do the most. As always, pick the best tool for the job. And Hyperthreading means no system slow down when I'm really pushing the CPU to the max and I want to multitask. To me, THAT is the biggest advantage the P4 has. But it won't help everyone. And being 64-bit is worthless until we have 64-bit software.

But, I may have to rethink my stance once the benchmarks with a 64-Bit version of Linux pop up. At least on Linux, you can compile everything to MAKE it 64-bit....

It's to bad AMD can't get the clock speed's up. An Athlon 64 running at 3+GHz would rock. So would a dual-CPU 3GHz setup...
Oh well. Hopefully soon. Very soon. Because the 3.6GHz P4 EE is coming...

EDIT:
$800 for the FX, and the P4EE is supposed to be $740. Pretty close...expensive, yes, but hey, it is cutting edge...

Burnin
I think you have the prices backwards from what I saw at toms it was the FX@749 and the P4EE/xeon@800

There is a 64 bit Linux OS out there. Not for me but I noticed you have the penguin in your avatar.

The retail version of the FX was $799; the price for the P4 is from Anandtech's article. I have yet to see it retail yet. Soon, hopefully!
And yes, there is a 64-bit Linux or two. Gentoo will probably end up being the best-it compiles everything for your system, so all the software and the OS would end up being 64-bit-no waiting for the developers! Not sure how much it'll help, though...

Can't wait till software comes out supporting it...

I haven't followed 64 bit processors at all, so I hope my questions are reasonable:
Is Windows XP 64 bit available? Someone mentioned it in one of the newegg reviews...

In any case, 64 bit applications don't exist yet, at least not any of the major ones...

Thanks!
I suppose apps would follow relatively (whatever that might mean in this case) soon after the release of the OS.

I believe the 64 bit XP has been pushed back to 1st quarter of 2004. I'd have to check around to be sure.
