    That's 4 different cores if AMD wants to keep the Athlon XP (current core) going. From production stand point it's ambitious and from financial stand point it's pretty risky but we'll have to see if...

    It's because they can't. IPC is higher on Athlon than P4 so they rely on that fact to compete with a higher clocked P4. Athlon is currently limited due to it's thermal limitations. A brand new...

    Few possibilities:

    1. Bad flash
    2. Clear CMOS by shorting out the CMOS Reset. (or take out the battery) This board has a tendency to do this after certain setting changes are made.
