Description Ulrich Drepper 2004-10-18 21:50:30 UTC
Please add a descriptive phrase to the summary, and more in-depth
description here (be sure to note any arch-specific issues):


The CPU requirements section currently says:

(x86) Fedora Core 2.92 Test 3 is optimized for Pentium PRO (and later)
CPUs, but also supports Pentium-class CPUs. This approach has been
taken because Pentium-class optimizations actually result in reduced
performance for non-Pentium-class processors.

It should rather say:

(x86) Fedora Core 2.92 Test 3 is optimized for Pentium4 CPUs, but also
supports earlier CPUs (like Pentium, PentiumPro, Pentium II, Pentium
III, and AMD and Via variants). This approach has been taken because
Pentium-class optimizations actually result in reduced performance for
non-Pentium-class processors and Pentium4 scheduling is sufficiently
different (while making up the bulk of today's processors) to warrant
this change.
