I'm with Nubius on this one.
It's new tech, so even if they cost $300 to put out, they're gonna be $900 on the shelf. This is so all the crazy morons who MUST HAVE the latest technology the instant it comes out, will throw wads of their money at AMD.
Which of course is not only good for AMD, but signifies a massive amount of stupidity in all those who buy.
1. No new tech works completely right when it comes out. It's good practice to just wait a bit (month, two, maybe three) before socking into a whole new technology.
2. A lot of brand-new tech, isn't even fully supported yet. So yer just pyssing away money...for nothing. Smart.
3. There'll be a whole load of half-watts in here the week after release, bytching about how nothing works and it's all MS's fault...purely because they didn't read the fking manual or specs before they threw their wad of cash at it. The number of people buying new tech when it first comes out, who actually understand it and know what it does, is like 2%. You morons really need to get a life.
And besides, the only thing new about this is that the cores are on the same punch as each other. Other than that, the technology is nothing new. MPPU's have been doing essentially the same thing for over 10 years. Yes this will be cheaper, yes there will be a speed boost, yes it will be neat...but patience and intelligence is always good.
