Default Re: AMD Quad FX Worklog/Review

Hate to sounds like a fanboy (im not), but I really would like to go back to AMD. Intel does have great procs, and they are a great company, but I've gone with AMD many times (3800 X2 FTW!) and really hope they start picking up again.

Now that they have their quad cores figured out, hopefully they can go into 45nm smoothly. The one thing that sounds concerning is their 9850 Black edition processor facing heat issues when overclocking to a mediocre 3.0ghz on air. A 500mhz overclock causeing up 50C load temps, not that impressive.

That being the case, I wonder how they're going to put out anymore of the same processor cores @ 65nm? They're suppose to release a higher end version soon of the Phenoms, that'll be interesting to see.

For my next build, not for a good year probably, I'll be going AMD and possibly ATI. I was really impressed with their 3870's in crossfire, they destroyed 3DMark06.

Ha, sorry to turn that into an about me thread, just kinda drifted that way.

That'd be a LOT of computational power, my goodness. 8 cores, phew. I can see the benfit eventually though.

Seriously, just think of this-

A game fullly optimized for eight cores, single processor with 8 cores, or a dual socket. Each core being use effiicently and effectively.

That'd make me one happy person.

If they make the Phenom X4's available to use on a dual socket, I'd be all about it. You'd see my XFX 780i/Q6600 up for sale the minute they anounced it haha.
