Wow, those numbers are getting out of hand... if you ask me AMD should rethink their PR Rating thing...

Yeah I saw that when I was looking around for new 65nm X2s last night. It's not so much out of hand as it is inaccurate.

Crap! You beat me by 3 minutes. I will be glad to see some benches with it. Though it should be the same as one FX74.

It's impossible to bench one FX74, so this will show us what the difference between one and two is.

No it's not. Anand did it in his QFX review. Every reviewer found that you can run one chip. Maybe that's why Newegg is selling them in packages of one.

SUP, any main diff between the FX-74 and the X2 6000? thanks l8er :)

Let's just apply Fuzzy Logic and say that a speed 3.0Ghz Athlon X2 6000+would be only Equal to a QuadFX Using equation of
(3.0Ghz ÷ √1.5)=2.449~ 2.45Ghz Quad core would perform close to the 3.0Ghz 6000+(my own observed Equation :p  )(too much free time before Exams)

It let's you run only one chip in a socket? :?

A little purpose defeating, but okay. I guess I read over that part.

:)  :)  --- the 6000+ snuck onto AMD's price list a week or so ago --- seeing stock now, yeah not a paper launch.... but no body was 'paper launch'-claiming the 6000+

However, 65 nm --- paper launch.

The chips they said would be in retail are showing up. 3600+ and 4000+ Brisbane is at Newegg.

It's hard to say why they aren't showing up in US PCs other than the foreign OEMs are getting them first. Someone did post that 3600+ was available in AUS and India weeks ago.

Since AMD is chasing volume not profits, this is reasonable as they will get more 3600+/4000+ chips out of the new process and a $115 dual core @ 65W will definitely be a HIGH volume part.

Another possible reason could be that they are collecting these up for the Vista launch. That would be a marketing coup since MS' phrase for this launch is
"Ready For A New Day"

I mean brand new EE chips for the new OS. It couldn't have been planned better if I had done it.

The FX74 has an unlocked multiplier and extra HT links.
January 27, 2007 2:58:52 PM

And the socket.
You can only fit the FX-74 in that crazy expensive mobo... so i guess the X2 6000+ could have many more potential buyers, if it wasn't for Core 2 Duo...

So you think that no one is buying AMD or have you slipped back to the crack pipe?

Hey Kalif, gimme back the crack pipe you biatch! lol :lol: 

Now seriously, where did i say that no one is buying AMD?? :o 
But sure enough, in the high end desktop market there are not many reasons for an informed buyer to get anything from AMD.

Why didnt they make this in 65nm? I dont see a reason to keep going with 90nm...

Because the 90nm fabrication technology is more mature than 65nm ones. :wink:
January 27, 2007 4:35:20 PM

then I would go for a core 2 duo. Why would I want to stick with an old nm tech? in Intel, 65nm is pretty mature :)

J/KBoy, AMD sure does a lot of stockpiling. First they saved them for back to school, now for VISTA. Doesn't really instill confidence in their abilities to supply the market.(can you say.."bitten off more than they can chew")? :roll:

I don't agree, the high-end is NOT OCing. It's being proportionately faster and more expensive. Though the per-clock comparison is about 15% (on average) over X2 we're talking about a chip that DEFINED gaming so we aren't starting from "BARELY ABLE TO."

I will be interested to see what 6000+ will do with 8800GTX.

Wow.. $599..
