Wait, look at this comparison chart: http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/20030217/images/cpu_chart.gif and then tell me where AMD has room to joke when their XP 3000 runs 16 degrees hotter than Intel's 3.066, and uses a higher voltage.

And, as you compare all the earlier models of the two flavors of processors, you'll see that AMD's processors always ran hotter than Intel's. That is, until you get back to PIII's and K7's.

That was pathetic...AMD should have really gone all out on this, it could have been hilarious. But they ruined it. Stupid Bitches

That chart says AMD Athlon XP 2500+-3000+ can withstand temp. up to 85C...not that it runs at that. haha
Plus look at power dissipation.

I can show you how to extract the heat into a moonshine still...

Ok, so more to the point... Who gives a flying *&%$ how hot the chip runs? Last I knew, it was about performance. Okay, so you might have to splurge on the extra $4 fan to move more air through the case. Ouch.

More heat = more fans = more noise/use water cooling. I don't like noise and I can't afford water cooling atm; therefore, I care about heat.

Its nice to see the Prescott knock the A64 from the top spot for performance.

A64 no longer holds the top spots for Super Pi

The heat problem was with the old stepping.

Next time post Urls. And the Prescott. Is just a heater. Man seeing a Presscott In a laptop was Funny. They seid you can only use a 12 cell battery for it. So the Guess the Presscott will last what 30 Mins on a laptop Battery. I seen it On http://www.xtremenotebooks.com Pro Star 8794 Accelerator.

And a Question is Who would want a Prescott In the summer time. The computer would force the AC to run More. But it would be great in the Winter time.

The human body still produces more heat than even a hotty Scotty.

Definately not if you factor in PSU and VRM ineffiency, the fans needed to cool it, etc. AFAIK, an average adult human consumes around 60-80W when not doing any physical labour.

If you want a better way to put this in perspective, a good 19" CRT will dissapate ~140W.
