Ya thats what i'm asking.

That's odd that they only have 1 Sempron and 1 A64. Early adopters are usually enthusiasts who go for the top spec gear.

I think we've got full range available in Europe, strange that North America's premier online vendor doesn't have a wider selection.

I'm curious to see if vendors will carry the 65W and 35W cores, can't wait to see how far those can overclock.
May 24, 2006 4:25:46 PM

Yeah cause am2 was manufactered in germany thats why europe has it.

The asus one looked pretty nice. They got smart and changed the locations of the pci slots (compared to the A8N32-SLI Deluxe)

Who cares, I am going to either wait on it or get a Sempron to begin with anyways :)  .

Oh yeah i forgot about those let's see if yonah can get a gig on air witht he same wattage i wonder how much the x2 3800 can go.

I bet that sempron will OC nicely. Good question. I am not sure why they dont have many processors. My biggest question is what type of board to get. I guess I will have to wait til the reviews come in slowly.

Price+OCing Semprons=happy
Something to hold me over until I get enough $ for an X2.

Also, what's the deal with all of the MSI boards at newegg, are they trying to dominate the sales at launch or what?
May 24, 2006 4:54:53 PM

Maybe they bought 10,000 units of midrange procs just to see how well they sell in order to know how much to order in the future.

Are the s939 64's going to see a noticeable price drop with this?

The recent THG article about the AM2 noted the different Nvidia chipsets for the AM2 - essentially look for a motherboard with the Nvidia 590, as it is intended for enthusiasts.

Hye i gota wquestion about nforce why is it called nforce 550,570, and 590 why could'nt they call it nforce 5,nforce5 ultra,and nforce 5 sli it would be much easier the new naming scheme really sucks to me.

I seriously doubt the Texans are releasing processors in Europe before the USA lol.
Why dont you show us that link to the full range? :roll:

They added two more processors but no X2's yet.
May 25, 2006 3:08:51 PM

well, is it even worth it to go AM2 when intel is releasing procs thatll dominate the market? Plus, AMD said that a proc that would beat the intel would have to wait until 2008, and a new socket. Im worried AMD already lost teh battle before it started.

s939 FX60's are down to $942 last time I checked!


There down to 893 :D 
May 25, 2006 6:29:16 PM

Now they added the 3500 for a reasonable 220.

The only reason to go with a AM2 right now would be if your building a new pc. You could get a cheap Sempron then later on you could drop in a 65nm X2 or whatever when the prices drop.
Your asking why buy AMD if Intel is going to dominate the market. Well AMD has been dominating the market for some time, but people are still buying Intels right?
AMD may lose the battle in the near future, but they have been winning the battle for some time, you cant be the best forever. Geeesh Intel sure knows that!

Newegg had the AM2 procs on the 24th....just 2...but they didn't have the search function up yet.

I'm so disapointed on the pricing....they're shooting themselves in the cock.

zipzoom has a couple too.

I susepct the 65nm AMDs will be very good. Regardless we can all get better deals on S939 now :-D
