That's not strictly true. You're implying that there is a seperate 
binary for the P4 or AMD, which there isn't. The two different versions 
available in the latest open beta are simply either static or 
dynamically linked. I think Andreas might have applied some more 
optimization flags to the compile in the more recent versions, but there 
are not to my knowledge any binaries compiled specifically for one 
processor type.

At any rate, ob7 performs significantly better here than ob6 and 
earlier, so I'd definitely agree that updating is a good idea. In case 
anyone was not aware, the latest open beta can be found here:
