I am positive. The reason they ran hotter is because of that cache. The interconnect to that cache was slightly changed, and so it raised the core temps by 5 celcius, already adding to the Barton's interesting temps... Winchester all the way BIATCHES!!!
Actually, I am really looking toward the 8 way, dual core Egypt, the newer Opteron on the market. THose will scream!
