SubZeroTech have had a look at P4 and AMD performance at perhaps a higher level than elsewhere in what they've called their "P4 and AMD Showdown: A Brief, Honest Look At The Numbers". Interesting times ahead, as the two heavyweights battle it out.

Last up for today, there are a few more LANs coming up. Both the ACT Gaming Network and Rezidue LAN Party in Mentone, Victoria are on the Australia Day weekend. Registration for Rezidue is through Ausgamers. Thanks for the info guys.
