Now that this has been out for quite a while, anyone actually noticing whether it's still a rip-off or not? lol

Now that this has been out for quite a while, anyone actually noticing whether it's still a rip-off or not? lolThere's a very extensive review of it here: http://www6.tomshardware.com/cpu/20030923/ It's comparing Athlon 64 FX and Athlon 64 vs. the P4 Extreme.

In the end: "Thanks to its ideal configuration and use of the best components, the P4 3.2 in the Extreme Edition (actually a Xeon labeled 'P4') wins the performance crown. Its former gaming weakness against the Athlon 64 has been ironed out by the 2 MB L3 cache. The AMD Athlon 64 FX-51 is only marginally slower. Especially with 3D games, both the 1 MB L2 cache as well as the fast memory access (HyperTransport) help it decisively beat competitor Intel P4 3.2 (standard edition)."
