[tgdaily] AMD has an ace up its sleeve

post #1 of 64

The name of the game is called “unlocking the multiplier”, which will be played with the SB700 and SB750 southbridge chips. If you are running an upcoming 2.8 GHz Black Edition CPU, a motherboard with the old SB600 model (RD690) will keep the processor cores operating at 2.8 GHz. However, if you have a motherboard with the SB700 chipset, you will receive a free upgrade to 3.0 GHz. And if you get a motherboard with a SB750 chip, your processor will run at 3.2 GHz, which matches the clock speed of the Athlon X2 6400+ - the highest clocked processor AMD ever offerred.

This was rumored before on Fudzilla, but this has more of an explanation of how it works.

Holy crap, the 9800BE looks a lot better all of a sudden.

Thats been canceled and current plans call for an Athlon 6000 series to replace it. No idea if they mean the current series or introducing more, faster, Athlon 6xxx processors.

What I'm guessing that they're going to do (not stating this as fact) is turn the dual core Athlons into low-power parts, eliminate single core, and push the tri-core Phenoms into the market Athlon X2's have now.

So it's just a multi bump? That doesn't make much sense since the 9800+ BE has unlocked multis... I hope we get a better explanation into how this exactly works. Phenoms are going to be at 3.2GHz.

Considering how cheap the K8 X2s are right now and how there really isn't much of a price gap between the K8 X2s and X3s, the K10 X2s don't really have much of a place in the lineup. They would have to sell them for cheaper than the X3s, probalby into the X2 price territory. It would probably confuse the general consumer too much as to buy a similarly priced dual-core but with dramatically different clock speeds. Plus, the K8 X2s are tried and true so they might as well maximize their return on the K8 X2s.
