Noticed something on wiki
 
I noticed the hardware section on the wiki is empty mabey we should post some of the fallowing
-benchmarks
-a short on which is better for tf amd64 or intel
-a short on which is better for ll amd64 or intel
-new hardware coming that could improve speeds
-ideas on usage of hardware
-aup (acctable use policty) such as mass installs that arnt legal are not welcome

Maybe so moo, in which case I think it ought to include that TF is significantly faster on a 64 bit capable processor (when running a 64 bit and prime95-supporting OS which for most people means Windows XP 64 Pro but there are others).

I wouldn't buy another 32 bit cpu. It could list which processors can do 64 bit and which can't. Also mention that it is possible now to run prime95 on the Intel-based macs if they are running XP.

I heard some benchmarks are faster on intel macs.

This could also be true for NGMA, but it isn't the case for Prescott (with its high latency division routine thanks to the superpipelined architecture).

what about lls. is it the prescot or a64
