It is our opinion that the FX-60 is the fastest consumer processor on the planet. With processing power this high it's hard to see how Intel will compete. The AMD 4800+ already comes out ahead in most benchmarks against the Intel Pentium D 840 EE, so the FX-60 is the last nail in the coffin for those users still wondering which processor to get for ultra performance. The boys in space suits should stop dancing and start putting out a better product or soon it won't really be seen as a competition.

Why not save some money and get an Opty 170 or a 4400+ in which both sould OC well and they have the same cache as the 4800+

Would you guys belive that the price of that processor is more than double what I payed for my current computer in 2003?

Agreed that the price is totally INSANE!!

However, 3.2GHz on STOCK cooling? Is that not insane as well? Compare that to an FX-57, which is really only $100 cheaper, and I don't believe they're hitting that kind of speed on air. I'm dying for one, as this will be the best performance you can get for 939, as it makes way for the new socket. So unless I wanna build a new system again, this is as good as it's going to get.

I don't even really care that it's dual core, that's not the draw for me, it's what it hits on air, it being dual core is a bonus. Perhaps with one of these at 3.2GHz my CPU would finally start catching up to my GPU's, no?
