AMD Thuban Hex Core in May???
 
AMD Thuban hex core processor to be released by May 2010|OCWorkbench

Enjoy!!!

the faster they come the better it will be. I also hope to see if they can release mainstream real 8 core ( no HT ) for every one. That would be a great punch in intel face.

:rofl::rofl::rofl: ...... and you think Intel have nothing to fight back :rofl::rofl::rofl:

look at a comment about it :

.........Some website did a review comparing phenom 2 X4 and X6 at 2.6 GHz recently and the Phenom X6 is going to barely beat out the lowest core i7s

.....Get your act together AMD or you will be struggling against VIA and making low end netbook CPUs.


by the way Martin look at the new kid in town

And I suppose you have buy one:P I really need to find some money to buy more memory if I want you to stay behind in the ranking.

I finally upgraded to a quad core and now the x6 cores are coming out. Hmmm... tempting. Wonder if they will actually be socket AM3.

clone63 January 28, 2010 12:52 PM

Supposed to be, IIRC

Bond007 January 28, 2010 02:17 PM

I think everything is AM3 until (possibly) bulldozer (not sure what is happening with sockets then).

Zero82z January 28, 2010 04:11 PM

These will use AM3, because they're basically just Deneb dies with an extra two cores shoehorned into them. Bulldozer will require a new socket because it's an entirely ground-up architecture that is significantly different from AMD"s current CPUs. It will also most likely use an LGA socket.

I have no doubt that for low-end and mid-end setups, AMD's processors offer better performance per dollar even though that's achieved in a much less efficient way than Intel. However, I sure hope the new Bulldozer architecture will put AMD back on the map to compete at the high-end as well.

More than 50% of my household machines are AMD but I keep having to go with Intel for my "flagship" machine...and I'm not an Intel fanboy.

Agreed (though I don't have that many computers...just one home computer and a laptop).
