  1. New to this post but I was wondering about the price changes. you think AMD will do some more price drops as intel does in Q2? I'm waiting to build a new system but if AMD doesn't drop when Intel does in Q2, then wondering if it was worth waiting for another month. Any comments?

    I don't know as there is no official announcement about that.
    But I would think AMD will cut price in Q2 or Q3.
  3. Newly added some quad-cores :wink:
  4. Yet another update :wink:
  5. I just saw on other sites that AMD is planning for a price cut in 04/08. But newegg has already dropped their prices on the athlon x2 4600. Anyone know if this is price drop is the 04/08 one or is there going to be a further one on that day?

    From the new price list, I don't know how x2 4600+ will be priced.
  7. I've been wondering when a Conroe based quadcore could be gotten for around $200. Could anyone tell me what the odds are that that Q6600 will be down under $300 by October?

    Because Intel wants to use their capacity advantage to beat AMD's dual-core processors. :wink:

    That's definately appealing to me. Then again, 45 watt quad core 45nm chips might be even more appealing. Unless they start at $800, in which case that'll be a good buy in a couple of years.

    Pretty damn good considering the next round of pricecuts (after the imminent April ones) are due in August and the Q6600 will be $266. I'd probably figure a street price closer to $300 initially as I imagine such cheap quads would be VERY popular...
  11. Hopefully Intel ramps up production enough that Newegg doesn't go out of stock for the low cost quad cores in six months.
  12. Hey, QC, you need to amend your original post regarding the E4xxx chips.

    "The aggressive pricing strategies of Intel will give a hard time on AMD, as E4x00 series have a higher performance than similar priced Athlon64 x2s."

    That's not entirely true, even after price cuts the E4xxx will only be more or less equal to an X2 at the same price (at stock speeds of course).

    From this chart, I will still hold my opinion :wink:
    E6xxx has lost the ground to x2s after the price cut but not the E4xxx. :wink:

    LOL fair enough, 1.36 vs 1.32 or 1.26 vs 1.23, pretty close IMHO but hey it's your thread. ;)

    Great work on this thread btw. 8)
  15. Added QX6850 8)

    Hopefully it'll be compatible with some of these newer motherboards.

    Should go well into the 3-4ghz range without too much difficulty.

    Currently no motherboard can officially support 1333MHz FSB.
    And 4GHz may be out of reach. :wink:
  18. I'm doomed.... my intel 915G chipset based system is stuck with netBURST...

    My Gigabyte DS3 Rev 3.3 has native support for 1333 FSB :/
  20. I think nVidia's 680i natively supports it. :P
  21. In Q3 the E4500 = 2.2GHz-2MB costs $133, and the E6540 = 2.36GHz-4MB is slated to be $163. Where does that leave the E6320 & E6420? $145 & $151? Or on the scrap pile??

    May be EOL......
    I suspect :wink:
  23. Updated on Intel pricing :wink:
  24. What is 'SSE4A'? any different than SSE4 ?
    thanks..

    It is the AMD version of SSE4 without some instructions optimized for Core Arch.

    An analog is the incomplete implementation of SSE3 instructions by AMD without instructions optimized for Hyper-Threading. :wink:
  26. Yet another updates. :D
  27. Another update...
  28. http://www.digitimes.com/NewsShow/MailHome.asp?datePublish=2007/6/23&pages=PD&seq=214
