You still measuring your processor speed in GHz? *yawn*

LOL If they keep upping the speed of these things, pretty soon you'll be able to compute and microwave your hotpockets at the same time.

From my understanding the processor has to be function specific... it can't alternate tasks at that speed.

I guess I'd like to see where you got that idea about this chip, $ilk, because your statement flies against my understanding of CPU's (OS's add "task switching" -- the CPU is doesn't know about or care about what it runs). Nor did I read anything in the linked article that implied that to me. You have a link for further reading?
