Not sure what the rules are for posting links? So google it..
Wish I had known I just bought a 955..
Nah post away...just don't hotlink images, host them yourself or use a picture hosting service....
I don't know many of these they will make, but i'd be surprised if we see a lot in the retail channel.
So its another black edition cpu, but with higher clocks out of the box? Similar to the Extreme Edition cpus with intel...
OCing overhead is quite good, so I am guessing 3.4 GHz out of the box...
Good way for AMD to make some profit by introducing high margin products such as this one.
The rumour has it: AMD picks the best chip in each wafer to qualify for the TWKR label.
...One criteria of selection appears to be able to withstand high core voltages.
Time will tell if this is actually true.
I see. They are going for overclocking records
Want one..don't care what it does has a great name.. and if it's like a 955 but starts at 3.4 definitely want one. drool..
If the default speed is in the mid 3's I could be tempted however I dare say it will be too expensive for my budget.
I dont think these are for retail.. probably special OEM, and for privilaged OCers to set records on an so forth.
i got my fingers crossed i get to handle one of these
This will be a nice upgrade for my 720BE when it comes out
965 & 975 Black
975 Black: 3.6GHz/8MB
.....but not until at least October.
It'll be good to see faster models as AMD's (ahem GlobalFoundry's) 45nm process improves
will definately consider 1 of those
I have seen nothing about this on the net and I check A LOT of hardware sites every day
Some news though:
EDIT: More news: http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/14352/1/
Hmm, now we see the bigger picture ty. The 2nd link via the Edit, may never be enough of them for general release ,
However, this is truly great advertising & promotional tool Exactly what AMD need Big Kudos to them.
ill have some results shortly on these TWKR chips, ive been lucky enough to secure one for some serious subzero clocking in the coming weeks =)
The packaging alone is enough incentive to buy it
Probally buy two, one to use and one to keep in the box and admire.
Lucky you! Keep us posted, that way we can live vicariously through you
