They are not bad CPU's, just 3 years behind the current technology!
I really want AMD to take off and run with this disappointment!
I agree! The only technological advancement with this design was the ability to fit everything on the 32nm substrate.
Advancement's in technology usually produce benefits in one or more of these areas:
1) Performance - FX performs on level with the last generation Phenom II
2) Energy - Significantly worse in this department then the Phenom II Series.
3) Cost - Cost is slightly higher then the Phenom II series
Put everything else aside and look at the basic computing application, the ability to run a single application. The ability of the FX series is less then that of the phenom II series. Everyone has seen the 100 of benchmarks!
Bios applications may improve in the future which will allow better control of the modules and the shared resources somewhat, but a circuitry change on the substrate will probably be needed!
