Default FX-57 that much better than FX-55?

I was wondering what you think about the release of AMD's FX-57, will it be that much better than the FX-55? The only difference that I can see it is 200 MHz faster, and it is a 90mn model. Will these slight differences make a whole lot of difference?

Thank you

Yan

90nm cores will be more overclockable

And if I really don't plan to overclock?
Will 90mm and other features create a *noticable* perforamance increase over the FX-55?

That is the question I am really confused by, because there is very little differnce between the new, and the old FX, what is the point of AMD putting another chip on an already incredible one?

Probably the same cost as the 55 after a month. Thats my guess.

the 90nm cores do give a performance increase over the 130nm cores with the same frequency and cache

200MHz for an AMD64 system would prove to be a good increase. You can't expect every cheap to do only a minimum of 400MHz or more every time lol.

No doubt everyone at xtreme sytems will have one as soon as it comes out hooked up to triple cascade phase change and be overclocking it to high hell lol
