And in fact a dual- or quad-970 system could potentially compare quite nicely in terms of price/performance to a single-processor Prescott or Hammer machine.


Well, I hope that is the case. It would be nice to see a fairly well stacked PPC machine reach the price points of Intel or AMD offerings. But then, it may mean that those new PC systems will be more expensive, raising the price closer to the PPC. I guess we will see in time.
