WHY AMD? WHY!? - Page 3

post #21 of 30
It's quite simple really. No conspiracy theory required either, AMD doesn't have the space it needs for both lines of production. AMD would be better off to stop producing the VERY old 45nm arch used for Phenom II, and switch over to full blown 32nm fabrication, which would allow for more Llano production, which is a better overall package than any FX or Phenom II.

Despite Zambezi's short comings, it would be (in my opinion) more worth it to refine and improve its rudimentary and crude architecture than try to push 32nm Phenoms, as they still wouldn't compete with intel and money has already been poured into BD for years.

You might still be able to buy brand new ones off of Ebay. Did you have a look on there?

EDIT: I just had a look on some UK websites and it seems they aren't going to be restocking on Phenom IIs and they are trying to get rid of them.

Yeah, it's quite interesting how stock is slowly vanishing.
About Tiger Direct, can anyone tell me if they are trustworthy?
Looks like they ship to New Zealand, but how long would that take, I wonder.

I'm considering getting an 1100t or 1090t BE from Tiger Direct now as they are something like 209 US (~260 NZD, I believe)

In that case, its pretty unbelievably cheap at the moment. Free economy shipping for purchases over $50. not to bad?
Looks like I may finally be getting my Thuban :3
and I'm looking into buying a corsair H80 for cooling.. if the two match anyways.

post #28 of 30
i must admit after getting 4100 FX on 990FX Board and relizing it was slower than my old 550 i gave up on AMD
Which i was sad about as had AMD for 12 years plus

There are alot of AMD x6 on uk Ebay would it be that much too ship one out too you ?

Yeah, i've had a look at a few stores, seems like avg shipping to New Zealand from American based stores (Ebay, TigerDirect) Is about $60 NZD o.0
So for me an 1100T to ship here would be like ~$320 ):
