Default Quad FX at Newegg.

Quad FX Motherboard.

Interesting,


4X4 Would EXPLODE if you got 2 CPU's for 570 dollars but it has been confirmed you get 1 cpu only. Newegg and other retailers refused to sell them in pairs.


Im not liking the position of the 20+4 Power connector :freak:

for $700 you can have a "quad" fx-70, but how does it compare to the Q6600 which is $850?

It would be cheaper to go with the evga 680i and QX6700. The 2xFX-74 with the dual socket motherboard, will set you about $1500+. The 2xFX-72 with mobo is $1300+. While the evga 680i and QX6700 goes for $1200+. You're right, anthrax.....the placement of the 24-pin connector is not appealing.

Quad FX gets beat, but barely. Im impressed, but the price and power hogs are a real turn down.


EDIT:


wow take a look at this.

Read the conclusion, it says that "Core 2 Extreme QX6700 is faster overall".

So, QX6700 is better than two FX-74, and cheaper.

Intel > AMD. Period.

Also the QX6700 takes a considerable amount of less wattage, not as loud, and not as hot, better oc's as well. If you want Quad Core Intel is the way to go.

Holy crap. Who ever thought an AMD processor would come stock at a speed of 3.0GHz hahaha. I think the amount of money it would take to make a quad core of either intel or AMD is just ridiculous and not worth it. It just kind of seems like overkill in my eyes. It's cool to see how much things are progessing though and it's nice to see AMD still putting up a fight.

this is two dual core CPU's verses a single quad core CPU. once AMD gets their real quad cores out, we'll see what their performance will be.
