It's $169 now on newegg. Any idea if this chip is compatible with Xen?

Yeah and I just bought one of those from newegg a couple weeks ago for
about $215. *headdesk*
This thing absolutely spanks. I've compared it to my other athlons, to
my dual-xeon workstation at the office, etc. and for CPU and
bus-intensive tasks it is amazing.
Building gcc-4.2.0 for example takes ~2m18s.
You're not going to get one of these in a laptop, though. ;-)
