If the price is right I wouldn't mind giving it a shot when it hits mainstream.

I just wish they would have added SMP to the damn thing.

i think it will be a good seti cruncher. 133mhz fsb, that should stomp on celerons (at seti) , at least i hope!

I think I will give it a try. It should be a cheap upgrade for one of my k6-2 systems, provided I can find a cheap motherboard.

I agree that it sould be good at seti, provided the fpu is up to scratch. Don`t forget the L2 cache is 256KB (2x celeron) and the fact that it is mutually exclusive gives it an effective 320KB cache, which should help with some of the smaller data sizes. Also, as the multiplier is not locked it will be possible to drop the multiplier to get higher fsb speeds, if you are having problems with overclocking.
