I would still hang in there. Have you noticed the 2000 and 1900 falling. They are doing this for a reason.

March 20th is when AMD sends out its processor to motherboard manufactures to examine the chip itself etc. It won't be until May until they come out.

Just hang in there.

I expect that in, a week or two, we'll see a plethora of tests all over the net. That's how AMD plays "public relations", and advertises.

At least to the OEMs....
