All part of DAMMIT's strategy to become more attractive to OEM's. That's where the real money is at.
I beat the Internet... the end guy was hard
Right on Grahf. I've been following the AMD's chipsets for quite a while. I must admit, their new 7x0 series is fantastic. AMD/ATI honestly imo aims to innovate to a higher lever than intel and nvidia. It was ATI first who was going for Hybrid Crossfire and that toggling between integrated graphics and a discrete card. The 790FX is also a CrossfireX board. Imagine having 4 3870's or 4 r700's on release. While you game, full power, but when you go to the desktop, cards disabled and integrated solution is turned on. You just eliminated around 400 watts of idle power draw. Can't wait to see how well they tune these 790FX chipsets, it's just a shame phenom was such a disappointment. But I must say, their chipsets are looking very nice, with their video cards obviously not offering the best performance, but for their performance/money value, they are still a great deal. We've pretty much entered the era of multi gpu computing, we wouldn't see mid range cards offering high end performance for no reason =P.
Yes I agree. If the CPUs can be as affective as the GPUs we might have some competition back
that would make a nice laptop
Go to xoticpc.com and you can build a lappy like that
seems amd is *slowly* getting back into the game but it may all end up to be another phenon. or radeon hd
Let's hope not, that would be bad for everyone.
