So if I am reading correctly a single FX-70 will only cost $500? Thats pretty cheap for an AMD top of the line processor. I recall pretty much each FX series proc when they came out costing $1K.

I think that comparison is quite mislead. Core Duo is successor of the Mobile Intel. And a revamped K8 equals to that?

well the pentium-M was based off the pentium III design... which goes back to the pentium PRO days.

Yeah that's what i was saying on another thread about the whole 4x4 thing. So if you and a friend each wanted a CPU, you could both pay half and just take one, or is that how it goes?

And the $1000 for a Kentsfield does not include a motherboard, and history tells us that high end AMD motherboards cost a maximum of about $200, while Intel motherboards flirt with $400. (*cough*Striker Extreme*cough*)

That's the way I see it any ways.
$1000 for a top of like CPU from Intel.

$1000 for two low end CPUs from AMD.

Why bother with that when a QX6600 will be less than that and left you with enough money to buy MoBo and RAM?

$200 for a high-end AMD board? yes, but 6 months after its release. Originally they cost $300 as well.
And $400 for a high-end Intel board? you're on crack. The most they cost is $279 at its release date but they drop $50 in price in about 4 months.....get your facts straight. And the striker extreme is not even released yet (ZZF is not a reliable place to buy anyway) and it's no where near a high-end Intel motherboard, we're already have two high-end Intel motherboards: P5W-DH Deluxe and P5B Deluxe Wi-Fi, both $224 and $250.

The QX6700 is faster, cooler, more efficient and overall cheaper. Its a win-win situation. The same cant be said for 4x4, which is more of a die-hard fanboy platform.
