Any idea when AMD will release something new? I know that the duel core technology is slotted for late next year sometime (we hope). But I don't want to wait that long to upgrade.

Does anyone know if AMD has any upgrades in store for the short term? I just don't want to make a purchase today and have something new come out next month.

This might be silly question, but could a hyperthreaded CPU like Prescott essentially be made to run Win64 by splitting the processor into to 32 bit parts at half speed?

Nope. The prescott doesn't have the 64bit registers enabled

I think we're stuck with speed bumps using the K8 (Athlon 64) core until Dual Core.

Humm... Is it a joke??? It's like asking a car manufacturers to split a car in 2 to make it work with 2 wheels and half is engine...

32bit vs 64bit is not as simple as "doubling" something... It's 2 different/complementary thing!
