Any new products from AMD expected soon?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I have been super busy with school lately, and haven't been able to keep up with the semiconductor news... Are there any new releases expected from AMD and/or Intel?

I'm curious because a friend of mine is looking to buy an X2 AMD, and is wondering if prices will drop by early 1Q 2009.

Thanks!

Care to elaborate a little? What is so different about it?

It's a 45nm overclockable (from the preliminary tests) Phenom.

I did, thanks. There was a lot of technical talk about how they are going to introduce a whole new host of GPU integrated processors and processors with DDR2/3 memory controllers, etc. It still didn't answer my question.

Thank you. I saw that as well, just wondering if anything else was the case. Or if this was just speculation.

They may be called 'Phenom II's, but the original Phenoms are 65nm Agena/Toliman, these are 45nm Deneb/Heka with triple or quadruple the L2 cache (depending on the processor, of course), so they're wildly different from the Phenom Is.

Needless to say, Deneb/Heka is certainly going to vaporize Agena/Toliman when it's released and benched.

So, theoretically, the prices of the X2's should decrease very soon?

X2 prices are already going so low, though, hard to imagine it going any lower. I don't think it's worth waiting on just to save $10 bucks or so. Prices drop heavily in the mid- to upper range, but low-range stuff can't go much lower (most you'll see is like $70 to $50 maybe).

But yea, Phenom II is the big thing right now. It should help put AMD back in the game--I'm sure you know, even if you've been away for a while, that Intel has been crushing AMD for the past couple of years.
