— 12:00 AM on September 15, 2003

Hold on to your expense accounts. We've rounded up the latest workstation CPUs and motherboards for an all-out workstation platform brawl. The Xeons are paired up, ready to take on the Opterons in tag-team action. Also on the card is NVIDIA's brawny nForce3 Pro, which is eyeing its upstart competition, VIA's ripped K8T800, with curious suspicion. What's more, the Athlon XP 3200+ and Pentium 4 3.2GHz have agreed to join us for some inter-conference action, giving the our contenders a shot at the unified world title belt. Will the young Opterons upstage the mighty Xeons? Can the mysterious K8T800 really take a punch? Will this metaphor fail completely before I get to the end of this paragraph? Keep reading to find out.
