I’ve been patiently waiting for an updated Asus Terminator K7 model to come out, and one hasn’t. Does anyone work there, and know if/when they’ll come out with one that uses DDR2700 and can handle the faster Athlons? (And, preferably, has an AGP slot in it?)
They came out with a faster P4 machine a few weeks ago (with AGP). The K7 machine is something like 18 moths old (in moth years, that’s about a century), and are way behind the bend in the price/performance curve (which is currently at around the Athlon 2800 mark – that’s the speed at which marginal improvements start to cost a lot more – the K7 Terminator can only take up to an Athlon 2200, and uses DDR2100 memory (20% slower than the ubiquitous and cheap DDR2700)).
