I have a Pentium 4 2.0G now and it works fine. Occasionally I miss my old P3 1G dually setup. I hate the pause or stutter when I'm printing or writing a CD. Anyway, is there anything new in the SMP world for Pentium 4s? Is there a DUAL P4 motherboard yet?

Thanks

MIKE

I don't miss my old Dually P3 1.26G setup because I still run it :) Works better for me than many of the single processor 2GHz+ P4 machines I have around. Instead of P4 Xeon why not go AMD? My home machine is a Dual AMD2600+ MP, works great and you'll get the processors and MOBOs much cheaper than Xeons.

You could get a hyperthreading Pentium 4 which makes your processor work like 2 processors.

I never have freezes when I burn cd's while I play games on my HT comp.

WOW! A blast form the past. I posted this question 2 years ago There is still no P4 dually, except Xeons. I now have a P4 3.06 with HT, but I! suspect a true dual processor rig would be smoother. I could jump to AMD when it is time for the next upgrade, but hey since HL2 is smooth at 1280 X 1024, what's the need?

and didn't check the dates!
Maybe you should...most people don't want to read crap that's two years old (especially a dumbass question like a dual p4 board!).

Maxtor disgraces the six letters that make Matrox.

Even though it was a mistake, sort of, I think the question is still relevent 2 years later.
