Wow, that's kind of cheap. I thought they had 2MB of Cache?

4800+? Gimme!

I enjoy that the 4200+ is almost in a reasonable price range.

Will this do anything to single cores any time soon, or are they going to be just as expensive?
Iraq... whee.

single cores will be around for about another year, then they are going the way of the dinosaur,not all at once, some singles will be available from other makers but AMD is going to multicore only as soon as they can do it

Not much initially, prices are dropping slowly now, the sempron for example has been coming down in price by about $5 per week lately, they will bottom out pretty soon, and probably stay roughly the same in price at that point until the production runs on singlecores ends, then they should drop in price by quite a bit.With the amount of computing power the current high end single cores have though I wouldnt look for them to ever get real real cheap to begin with even after they are no longer made.I'd look for intel single cores to drop in price alot more depending on how intel phases out their production,although intel hasnt been known to be all that tough to compete with in the bang for the $$ area like AMD has,so they may keep prices high by phasing out single cores slowly while AMD will likely just quit making them all at once.

OTOH I think we are going to see serious price drops in other things, memory is getting ridiculously cheap these days, LCD's are going to get that way soon too.

AMD said that they are keeping the FX series as a single core, but all other 64s will be switched to duals, eventually.

The FX-55 is still the fastest CPU that AMD makes, and that is from their own releases.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard

This doesnt mean that the 64s are suddenly obsolete though. The current line of 64s (3000+, 3200, 3400, 3500, 3800, and 4000) are still very powerful. Hell, the 3200 beats out the pentium 4 3.8ghz in some tests.

-MSI K8N Neo4-F
-Sapphire Radeon X850 XT
-2x 1024 Corsair XMS Pro
