We might well notice a difference, we just dont know till we get the damn thing. not neceseraly because of the clock speed improvement but possibly because of the differnce in design of the apollo chips. Example: difference in speed between the 7410 and the 7450 (think i got those right, correct me if im wrong). both called the G4, both similar in clock speed, but because of design in cache etc the 7450 is faster.Originally posted by maclamb
perhaps not a great insight but I think the driven-ness of us on this site trying to get the best and fastest is more a (forgive me) male matter of who's is longer or who pisses farthest or even simply we want to get the best deal we can at the time for the money.
It has always been true that we spend the same amount of $ about every 18 months - but get lots more for it.
none of us like to think we got taken....
but really, how many of us will notice a difference between DP 800 NVidia and the 1.0Ghz DP ATi 7500?
Excellent point.Originally posted by maclamb
