3 New Athlon 64 FX CPU's
DigiTimes reports that AMD is preparing to launch no less than 3 new Athlon 64 FX processors in November to combat the launch of Intel's new QX6700 processor. As part of the company's upcoming "4x4" platform which will consist of two dual-core processors being placed on a motherboard, these new products will be competing with Intel's single quad-core processors. As a result, Intel might be able to offer their processor and platform at a much lower cost than a comparable AMD "4x4" platform as motherboard vendors are being forced to use two of the more complex Socket 1207 connectors along with more involved power logic. Once thing is certain though, consumers will now have an absolutely obscene amount of CPU power at their disposal.
