For Intel chipsets only. It's supposed to make your PC boot faster, run apps faster, etc. What will happen if I try it on my Athlon? Hmm.

I was under the impression that this application was only for Pentium 4's but maybe it works on others too?? I have a Dell Dimension 8100 w/P4 and have downloaded this with no problems. I used MS Works as my test program, it opens and runs this MUCH faster. Their are actually two programs to download, a utility and then the accelerator. I frequent DellTalk ® (a dell sponsored forum)and it appears that some are experiencing problems with installation? But I dont know if they installed BOTH programs as Intel states?
But my experience has been very good thus far...

It is actually only for Intel i8xx chipsets. So to answer NickSo's question, no you cannot use it. Now those who have Pentium 3 and 4 systems running on an i8xx chipset then yes.
The app is actually optimized for the Pentium 4 chip, but still works on the Pentium 3, just not as well.
