This would be absolutely awesome! 64 Bit chip form Intel, the mother of processors! Looks like I am gonna hold off on getting a PowerMac until this happens.

Just recently I have been doing Mpeg2 encoding, both on my iMac and one of my P4 2Ghz. I can tell you that the iMac is VERY slow in comparison. It might be good for editing images, and cuting and pasting video, but as for being a number cruncher, it fails. This new chip would fix this. And not only would it fix it, it would smoke any P4 on the market. This is definately something I have been waiting for.
