The chips are rated at a thermal design power of 80 watts; the high-end X5355 makes an exception at 120 watts. The 5320 and 5310 models will run on FSB1066, while the E5345 and X5355 will support FSB1333.<br />
<br />
Kentsfield will ship in only one version and very limited numbers. The QX6700 will be clocked at 2.67 GHz.</div>

</div>Its weird why they decided to use lower numbers for there quad-cores over there dual-cores?<br />

YEah, those are the sever CPUs (Clovertown), which are all in the 5xxx series (Dempsey is 50xx, Woodcrest is 51xx). Thus, the numbering makes sense <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

So since Kentsfield is the same speed rating as the X5355, does that mean it also has the same 120 watt TDP? Dang that is pretty high for the Core architecture....

It's four cores dude... thus obviously more power<br />
<br />
Core 2 Duo is 65W, thus 125W is expected.<br />
<br />
Do realize that the dual coreFX-62 draws 125W also

Kentsfield is essentially 2 Core 2 Duo's on the same die, so the doubled temperature reading makes sense.

arghh, please tell me they dont comunicate via FSB<br><br>
I gues the lower frequency could be the fact theres 2 more cores to aplly power to, disapate heat ect.<br><br>
when will AMD ship their quad-cores? hopefuly those will have a higher clock speed, even if they ran a tad bit warm, I personaly wouldnt mind <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

It's a bit lower clockspeed than the X6800, but who cares... you're gonna overclock that beast anyways, and from what I heard, overclocking results are good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br>
And why need higher clock speed? If AMD uses it's current architecture in Quad Core, they'll need to come up with something that runs 4.0GHz (which is not possible with AMD's current technology). I am pretty sure AMD will have developed also a new technology, and clock speeds will seem low also.<br><br>
MHz is not everything. 2.67 on CPU like that is monsterous

I'm thinking that a x6900 is gonna be better for gaming than getting a quad for awhile.

Haven't heard a lot about 4x4. My first impression it that it is going to be expensive. Also, is it true that it will be socket F??? In that case, I won't expect too much overclockability.

all depends on price to performance, the benchmarks on tomshardware although show awesome performance, dont make it worth say, twice the price of a current c2d. but if the price match performance, IE the cheapest one being £400 for example, they are going to have a very high selling cpu. however i think the production costs will be too high and they are taking the CPU back so quickly with the c2d that they can charge what they want for it. only for the extreme users.<br><br>
i know i want a cheap one that overclocks like mad!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"> like the good old 805 woot!

ive heard lots of rumours about when they will be available, i think im going to hold out on the c2d because im excited to see what the quadcores can do. i am a performance freak and its hard to stay with my 805 even though it runs so awesomely!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
some ppl have been saying november, some 2007 Q1?? who knows

They should realease a Q6400/6500 with 2.13Ghz 4/8MB Cache and 2.13Ghz clock speed, at about $500/600 i think.

youve hit it on the nail on the head, that would be perfect if you ask me (of course i am expecting it to be an awesome overclocker<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">)
