Re: xorg +XGI Volari XP5
It's not the cost that was my argument, but power usage.
that's why i mentioned the Turion64...
You can get a Pentium-M for the same price, albeit with less MHz (but
not less performance perse!). Besides, a Turion64 uses more power.
i doubt about the price, amd products tend to be much cheaper.
the Turions is at the same level as the P-M when it comes to power
The Turion64 ML at 1800Mhz, has a TDP 25watts...
The Dothan Intel specs with 21 Watts...
While in my personal experience AMD always stated a very high TDP while
the real usage is _much_ lower (e.g. winchester 3500+ TDP 67 real usage
Transmeta is still in the Pentium 3 non-coppermine/tualatin days where
performance is concerned, just like VIA with their C3. I won't seriously
recommend that to anyone buying a new notebook.
AMD Goede NX
in the ULV segment both AMD and Intel have similiar platforms
