Five New CPUs from AMD

Just in case you missed it guys:
Quote:
Arriving today are five new AMD CPUs that promise to "give mainstream consumers advanced performance capabilities from their desktop PCs at increasingly attractive price points".

The picks of the bunch are arguably the latest addition to AMD's dual-core Phenom X2 line and a new quad-core Athlon II X4. AMD's dual-core Phenom - the 3.2GHz Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition - becomes the company's fastest dual-core desktop offering and carries a TDP of 80W and a thousand-unit price tag of just $99, suggesting decent refinements to GlobalFoundries' 45nm fabrication process.

  5. Nah! Jimi means that the 555 info is already avaliable and that someone else beat him to it! r_manic is a little late telling us about it is all. Then again he did say that
    Just in case you missed it guys:
  6. what jimi ment is that this "improved" chips should have been out years ago. 32nm is the way to go.

    With that logic anyone building today should go dual core, since they're are no 32nm quad cores yet.
