Falcon Northwest Upgrades the Mach V With AM2

Mach V Is Not Enough

On May 23rd, AMD introduced its new socket AM2 platform and a complete line of processors that utilize it. Several advancements come with the new socket, but the most important for bleeding-edgers are even faster processors. The new king of the hill is the dual core Athlon 64 FX-62 running at 2.8 GHz, which is now being deployed into Falcon Northwest's latest Mach V system.

There are only a few select places to get this processor, which reminds us of Quad-SLI and every other first-on-the-street product that early adopters strive to own. For the time being these will be found mostly inside custom-built systems, until acceptance and volume come to the mainstream.

Prior to the launch, we were approached by a familiar name in the gaming systems world, Falcon Northwest. Of course we could not pass up the opportunity to see how the company's new killer system performs.
