yeah QX9650 already exists from what I've seen
you've seen too much
now share some with us hahahahh
i'm guessing that's the CPU fugger will post about today or tomorrow
Im guessing, WANT NEW PC?
i just WANT NEW CPU
although damn im gonna need some new ram too!
better cash in on some ballistix before the price rises.
One thing I am very much convinced about: This tri-core offer from AMD will flop. In the car industry somebody offered with similar arguments ("performance gap between 4 and 6 cylinder") a 5-cylinder engine. It was never successful. And if Intel is really launching Penryn already in November, they go with a very strong lead into 2008, probably 1 year ahead of AMD.
Yeah but all Intel are releasing from that roadmap is the extreme part this year, how many people will buy an EE chip compared to AMD's 'value' offering? The tri-core is coming out this year right?
Hmm, I'm interested to see how the E8500 will clock. Could be interesting.
So it looks like the Q6600 @ 3GHz is the way to go in order to stay up to date for the cheapest price.
It's the usual marketing strategy (we do the same with new car models): You want to have the latest/newest product? Then you have to buy the most expensive version, because it is launched first.
It's not quite the same; in AMD's case, it seems they'll be a more limited supply part used to sell Quad-core chips with a single non-functional core. For the right price, I can see people buying them. Of course, all intel needs to do to stay ahead is stay aggressive on pricing and prevent AMD from re-grabbing the price/performance crown they used to dominate. In that case, it's likely that AMD's sales will continue along the slow downward spiral that they've had since the release of the Core 2 Duo.
i thought their sales went up the last year or so? intel continue to make more money then previous months but amd are selling more and more in comparison
did you guys see this year's IDF in SF
Fugger (XS Forum owner) was demoing an overclocked quad core penryn with paul otellini and overclocked the quad to 5.5Ghz
Seems like Q6600 is still good value?
Considering 4MB x 2 @ 2.4GHz @ ~$330... versus 3MB x 2 @ 2.5GHz for Q9300 @ ~$??? and 4 months away.
Q9450 is significant, 50% cache increase on the Q6600 and 11% clock increase... I wonder how they'd go against each other clock for clock?
Be interesting to see the prices and how much OCing headroom these mid-range quads have.
There's gonna be alot of excess and hopefully cheap C2D's & C2Q's in the upcoming months it seems.
Q9550 has an 8.5 multiplier?
Oh please do share!
Q9450! Yarrrghh!! That be the processor of me choice! Reckon i should be able to get it to 3.2GHz with a Tuniq? Time will tell Yarrrr!
Look at the overclock he got =o
need phase change cooling...
*adds to wishlist*
