Amd might be turning things around.
This looks good but it is from the Inquirer lol. Comon Amd...you can do it....lol.
AMD's 3GHz K10 to break 30,000 3DMark06
I'm holding off for a pair of those in a year :) Could certainly use the upgrade as I'm already past the multitasking limits of my current processor.
Well it's the inquirer so..
Still thats some pretty impressive numbers.
I second the "come on AMD!"
better keep this quiet
Hopefully AMD will catch Intel with their dirty pants down:biggrin:
Those 2900's seem to rack up some nice points but why not in games? Perhaps the 2900pro and new drivers will wake these monsters up in games and those quads will come in at a nice price. Are these quads are going to be paired on double socket boards in the future???
I wonder if highly overclockable multiple socket boards will become more mainstream following the K10 launch with 3 PCI 2 cards. Not that you need that much processing power, but you never know.
Anyway Id be happy with just one of those beauties if they come in at about $300.
I doubt they will be $300.
perhaps not initially
But Intel has got the ball rolling by pricing the Q6600 in the $300-340 bracket.
Given that the release of AMD's K10 will likely co-incide with a new wave of cpus from Intel we may get lucky enough to have some of the lower clocked quad K10's at the that price-point.
Intel wants to hurt AMD and stick to its tick tock masterplan so it wouldnt surprise me to see a nose-dive in prices...
well heres hoping..Ive only set aside about $800 for a platform upgrade (MB, CPU, mem).
I hope your right :)
