Default quad cored AMD and FX-61

i heard that AMD is releasing a quad cored processor in 2007 when apps will be broken down to multiple threads and that there are plans to make the FX-61, a gaming processor with 2 or maybe 4 cores
anyone else hear about this

Where did you hear that? That would be rather pretentious of AMD to do that so soon after releasing the dual cores.

theres no way theres gonna be a quad core anytime soon and even if there is it wont be worth since u cante utilize eatch and every core unles ur a majot major major multitasker but come on when the dual cores get good thats what ull want and when they make it so games can utilize both cores then it will all be good stuff.
