Probably in Q1 '07... But there will also be native quad-core 65nm Optys.

:\\ Only 512mb of cache per core- Not cool. I would have liked at least 1MB per core.

Dunno if anyone is gonna buy these, seems like there isn't enough onboard cache.

People buy Manchesters and 512kb Windsors, don't they?

The cache isn't a very limiting factor in my opinion...

I dunno- I am of the opinion that more cache is better. Considering the C2D packs 4MB into its core, I think AMD really needs to begin stepping up to the plate and offering more high-cache solutions. L2 cache is really nice because it's super-fast, much faster than RAM will be, so more "stuff" is available for the processor to process, which leads to better performance.

See? And 512k really shouldn't be offered anymore- San Diago [/Ron Burgundy] offered 1MB, so why shouldn't Brisbane?

Darn it, I wanted to make an Anchorman reference!


I'm not saying that I'm glad AMD's gotten rid of higher-cache chips - just that people will still buy them.

I for one will more than likely wait until native quad-core comes out for AMD, then compare vs. the QX66600 and figure out which is the better buy. No 4x4 for me, Intel quad-core already kicks its butt.

I guess you like the Anchorman reference

Initial results for the native quad are promising, but then again, so were initial 4x4 results. =/

I'm in love with that movie. Massive amounts of comic genius stuffed into 2 hours.

I believe it was to lower manufactoring costs or something to that effect.

Dunno.

AMD nearly DOUBLED their income since the aquisition of ATI. I think they can afford an extra $5 per chip.
