Link here! 125W too da*n hot!

Seems like they just want to increase clock speed to try to counter Intel for now. Somehow, I think that X2 6000 won't overclock a whole lot.

Also, this quote is interesting:
Quote:
Also, later on AMD plans to unveil Athlon 64 FX-70 (2.60GHz, 2MB L2 cache [1MB per core]), FX-72 (2.80GHz, 2MB L2 cache [1MB per core]) and FX-74 (3.00GHz, 2MB L2 cache [1MB per core]) microprocessors in 1207-pin form-factor for AMD 4x4 platform. Even though the cost of a 4x4 system will be very high, as AMD Athlon 64 FX-series processors cost around $1000 each, however, the 4x4 represents “performance at any cost” approach, which should dethrone the Intel Core 2 Duo and Extreme processors.
Dethrone Core 2 Duo at all cost.... will it dethrone Kentsfield (first benchies are in and look impressive...http://www.overclock.net/news-overcl...l#post1288357). And it should dethrone Core 2 Duo by a whole lot, since the strenth of Core 2 Duo is performance at a reasonable price.

I think it's really cute. AMD chose to market its processors as "Intel Equivalent Speed" when intel changed the amount of work being done per clock, and now that Intel's changed the formula again they have decided to use the scheme originally dreamed up from within AMD...

Cute. My dollar is on the Kentsfield though.

I found another intresting story at the techreport:

AMD will reportedly be adjusting multipliers in 0.5x increments with the 65nm "Brisbane" core, enabling 100MHz higher clock speeds than current models.

Its good to see the return of the 2MB of L2 cache. However, I think AMD was rather foolish to make 4x4 on the socket F platform, which is intended for servers. That means high-priced server motherboards and ECC registered DDR2, which has higher latencies and costs more than regular DDR2. Then around a $1000 per CPU. Thats gonna end up like $3000 just for the CPU + Mobo + RAM. Add SLI or Crossfire and tack on another $1000. Plus youll need a decent PSU around 800W to power all that, and along with storage, add-ins and peripherals, that adds on about another $1000.

Final price: ~$5000


Is it just me, or does all this sound a little absurd, especially since youll probably be able to build a comparable Kentsfield system for around half that?

What are you thinking AMD?

Interesting stuff, do those processors for the dual socket setup have to be the same?

This interesting little phrase raised some ideas in my head

Quote:
Aside from the 65nm speed details, HKEPC's sources claim AMD will make some adjustments to its branding scheme come the rumored November launch of 4x4-bound Athlon 64 FX dual-processor kits.
ehh maybe I'm just dreaming again.

I really doubt AMD is going to launch any more CPUs for the 939 or 754, maybe some 65nm semprons but nothing more.

Plus, that those serverboards generally are not designed for overclocking... unless mobo manufacturers want to spend development time and money to make a board that is stable enough for servers, and had OC functionality

I think they already ceased all production for 939, except the X2 4800 or so. And semprons also will be AM2. Don't count on anything 939 anymore. (even Opterons do now exist in AM2, or socket F of course)

I think AMD should start to change thier naming ways of the cpu,s
maybe instead of 6000+ they should call it 2400- or somthing like that
