FSB on the AM2? Maybe you could explain how this AMD AM2 FSB specifically works. It looks as though you've confused FSB with HTT or maybe AMD has moved the onboard memory controller offchip?

Don't be a smartass, you know as well as I do that I was talking about htt. The 2 words are used interchangeably often, but yes, fsb is incorrect. Do you have any comment on my statement or did you simply feel the need to flame?

I believe Intel will release Conroe around the time AM2 comes out. Cause if Intel is still on netburst when AM2 is released, theyll be in trouble.

And I think the reason Intel ran the Conroe against an FX-60 @ 2.8GHz was to simulate the FX-62, which will most likely run at that speed.

Thank you for the clarification. I had thought either you were wrong or that AMD had perhaps decided to move the onboard memory controller off chip with the new formfactor. I don't see where requesting clarification from you is a flame. Let's get this straight. I ask for clarification, you call me a smartass and say I am flaming you?

Is this a pattern?

I sure would love to see Conroe come out around the same time AM2 does.

As far as release date goes, I think it's toward the end of the year. Late summer, I think. And if all these things that they've been saying are true, it looks like AMD might be in some trouble. With Intels user smaller tranistors, becoming more efficient, and running above and beyond the overall specs of AMDs, it might be time for me to switch over to Intel. We'll have to wait for the new CPUs to come out later this year before we will really know, but these new Intel chips are looking pretty insane.

I honestly don't think amd is in any trouble at all. Yes this is a new processor that is on new architecture but comeparing it to the fx-62 is hardly fair i believe. Because its not amds new chip that will be the next generation, but rather just the chip to make the switch to the new socket. Wait until amd releases information on their new architecture because I know it will be able to keep up with the conroe. Also if what I heard that the new architecture will be on ddr3 then for sure it will be a close race. The conroe will be a great chip no matter and be great for intel and the switch from netburst.

I agree. AMD has come through harder times than the upcoming Conroe. They made it through the K5/K6 era where they were very far behind Intel and they will make it through being a bit behind if that is indeed the case. Certainly they have proven to all that they belong in the personal/server CPU industry when all (other than Intel) have failed to one extent or another.

The proof is that during the 386/486/K5/K6 era they were taking all of Intel's ideas and formfactors. Now we see that Intel is taking some of their ideas and AMD some of Intel's ideas. Proof they belong.

But what about this new AMD architecture? Is it just on paper? Conroe is for real, the next gen AMD is just on paper. Comparing the FX62 to the Conroe is fair, because you are comparing a brand new architecture in its infacy to a veteran AMD one. Within months of the Core (Conroe) launch, Intel will start to release new and better processors than the launch Conroe processors. Just as the Preslers are better than the Smithfield, Intel will release something that will outdue the Conroe, and so on.
