    Wow AMD is surprisingly on the move this year, typically the CEO just goes to sleep in the middle of the meeting, but this idea is simply clever for marketing.

    You must remember that Mr. Sanders is "sorta coming back"... and this is within his personality to name a product like that.....

    Since i have youngest brother of 9xx line, the 920 AM2+ socket, i am starting to feel envy...
    Anyway, looks like THE beast, i am more than sure it will cost less than i7 975...

    If a Phenom II FX ever comes to be, it will be after they have consumer-grade RD890 chipset for multi-socket boards, and will make a DSDC platform (like Athlon64 FX 70 series). Again, it's a big 'if'.

    Meh, I hated that. I preferred the days of the Athlon FX DDR1 where it plugged right into the common S939 motherboard.

    Aside from that, most motherboards (especially gigabyte) list support for the Phenom FX processors. Granted they never materialized and they don't list Phenom II FX support, but I don't want to see a Phenom II FX exclusively on socket other than AM3.

    Perhaps they could release an Istanbul FX for AM3, as well as a multisocket compatible version along side it with the release of the RD890/SB850 chipset. That would be :D.

    Well, the points charlie made are very crappy.

    ES's like the ones he has are made in greater numbers.

    These are a VERY VERY VERY limited run. Under 200 released. So why put a barcode/SN on them when the S/N is saved in the EPROM on the CPU die?

    In Douglas Adams books, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a group of super intelligent, pan-dimensional beings demand the answer to the the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything from the supercomputer "Deep Thought" which was designed for that purpose. After 7.5 million years, "Deep Thought" responded with the answer 42.

    Coincidence? :laugh:
