It does great with 32-bit games.... a lot better then Intel according to benchmarks.

We've already seen your benchmarks Giancarlo

They weren't very good to your point.

Never said they didn't. AMD 64's are awesome because they handle BOTH 32 and 64 really well. That's why I just bought a brand new AMD 64 3200+ 939 winchester. w00t.

But my point is that while in a year or so, we might start seeing 64 bit games (thought 32 would undoubtfully still dominate the market), right now, the whole gaming community revolves around 32.

sooo if AMD 64's are better for games, does that mean that p4 w/ HT (or w/ out) are better for apps and multitasking??

The P4 isn't better for apps or multitasking.
