I'm sick of the current AMD lineup its been stagnant for years now, only differene are the black editions and phenoms.

AMD needs to get B3 out and their dual cores out, and they shouldn't even bother with tri-core....

More about : amd dual cores coming

If I remember correctly, AMD is preparing to launch them in this quarter. I could be wrong though.

Grab your shaker of salt for the following tidbit from the Inquirer. The B3 stepping should be out by May 8th. They will be concentrating on the lower frequencies, even adding a 65 watt Phenom 9000 at 1.8 gigaherzt that looks good for HTPC, or if you keep the PC on 24/7 doing anime torrents.

They'll have B3 dual cores, triple cores and quad core Phenoms at the regular 9500 and 9600 2.2 and 2.3 clock speeds. They won't get the 2.4 and 2.6 out until later in the year. 45nm quad core will arrive sometime in 2009, but the way they're going, it could be late 2009.

They're also coming out with higher clocked 65 watt Brisbanes too, but the Phenom core's beat the Brisbane cores by 17% to 25%, so I can't see getting a dual core Phenom. A triple core might bring an advantage, as a few games use 3 cores (or was that 2 1/2 cores? Maybe I should write for the Inquirer LOL).

Looks like AMD is finally catching up to their production goals (not catching up to Intel) and their stock is creeping back to normalcy as they approach profitability. What I can't wait for is Swift in 2009. A quad core CPU where 3 are Phenom cores and one is a 3000 series ATI. If it works in an RS780 motherboard alongside the IGP and a discrete card in the same range, we could see triple Crossfire on the cheap. Now, if they only get it to work with faster cards then the 3450 and 3470!

Wow Swift looks to be a great innovation, should it come out.

Let my guess, they say customers don't want high frequencies?

Considering the walls AMD ran into with the Brisbane core and using the same 65nm process.. You'd be better off trying to OC an old Windsor to beat a Wolfie.

Yeah, I think they are hiring those two turtles from Comcast "the slowskies", to help promote.

Ya. Their already green! All they need is a Phenom sticker on their carapeces!

Im gonna start advertsing sleeved down Evo engines. Ill take em down from 1340 cc to around 400. Take out a big ad in Easyriders with the headlne: Slow Down And Live! Let's see if I get beter sales than the 1.8 Quad. :lol:

They probably intend to use broken quads as dual-cores. Given that they haven't introduced the triple-cores either, i assume that most of their quad cores have three broken cores.

*sighs* Looks like AMD users like moi will have no choice but to switch to Intel if they want the now, at least until the bulldozer or whatever is next comes out.

What is the point of a tri core?

To have another SKU to compete with.

Also so that if you have one bad core you can sell it as a Tri-Core rather than Dual-Core and make $10 extra per chip!

Whats the point of a Quad anyway???
