Default New Athlon64 4000+ & Fx-55

October 15th. Can't wait til both of them comes out.

I just want hear what you guys think of it. I mean, it's really expensive right now so probably nobody will get it but compared to intel and stuff, how much advanced did amd get?

Sheeeeit, hell I don't even know. Like you said, these things are so damned expensive only the wealthy or spoiled or Tomshardwareguide can afford it. AMD Is getting insane. I just know they will completely dominate Intel at this rate. Intel keeps marketing and focusing on complete marketing for dell, compaqUSA, places like that, and AMD never markets like Intel does. I just feel in my opinion that AMD seems like it'd be your friend working there and he's telling you 'Hey man, I got something new for you' or asking you 'how can I make that last one better' while Intel just sits around and mumbles 'Money money money money!!!!! MAUAUAHAUHAUHA ' to themselves

Thats true, I don't think I have EVER been able to purchase a completely top of the line computer, and I would think most haven't. The money I just spent on the my computer upgrades I made a few weeks ago, wouldn't even cover the costs of an FX-53 Chip. But it sure would be nice to tell your friends that you had a system based on the Athlon64 4000+. You would have Ultimate bragging rights.

What does the chip run at for clock speeds? It also has to run hot. Did you find the listing on AMD's site?
