  • AMD's FX-7x Series still beat by Intels Core 2 Duo's

    Link to Toms Hardware


    What do you guys think of AMD's quick fix to Quad core. Between the prices, gain in power use, high heat, and did i mention high price, the Core2's seem like quite a bargin still.


    Buying a FX-70 series means you get two dual cores CPU's:



    This Asus board has two Socket T slots, 12 SATA ports, and nVidia 680a (Supports 2x x16 PCIe, and 2x x8 PCIe aka 4 PCIe)

    From Ars Technica -- AMD's QuadFX (a.k.a. 4x4) disappoints

      This is a hard hit on AMD, basically Intel took AMD's idea and one upped them on it, now AMD is having a hard time keeping up...


      In other new's Intel is also taking AMD's idea of having a on-chip memory controller... Whats next, going witha "FX" line of processors for its gamers?

        Intel's faster, nothing wrong with that... they compete and we all win.

          I agree Intel has been beating AMD recently.

            The more heated the competition the more we benefit.

              Ya, but Intel is kicking AMD around right now, if AMD has to many failures it may just give up, which wouldnt be a good thing.

                I never thought that AMD's 4x4 was a great idea. You're doubling your heat and noise. That's not a good combination with newer PC's. People want quiet computers that perform well. I'm quite worried for AMD.

                  If you still haven't noticed, AMD isn't sleeping on intel. AMD shows K8L.

                  "With the introduction of native quad-core x86 processors in the second quarter of 2007, AMD plans to again deliver exceptional technology based on the same customer-centric design principles that steered the development of our award-winning AMD dual-core server, workstation, desktop and mobile processors."

                    It looks like the new system (Dual socket mobo) will have the ability to upgrade to a quad/multi-core processor down the line, making AMD have the ability of 8+ cores on one home computer... Sounds like its a winner in the making.

                      Right now quad-cores aren't all that useful. Very little takes advantage of them at the moment. I would expect that by the time there is a demand for 8+ cores, Intel would have something out that requires less power, produces less heat, and gives better performance.

                      I've been an AMD fan until the core 2 duos... now AMD really has it tough.
