555 BE? Yet more dual core garbage! However 5970 X2! Now we are talkin!
5970x2????? is that a mistake or what?
I dont know but anything with X2 I want! However chances are it was a typo.
I guess so?
Must be more like an 5870x2 or it's really an 5970x2 4 GPU's on one card?
no what the article is saying is that all current gpu's will be cheaper thats all. but instead of calling it the 5970 they typo'ed and called it the 5970X2.
Why would they make a 5870x2 when a 5870x2 is a 5970 XD.Wierd comment moment!
Imagine 6400 !@*&# STREAM PROCESSORS ON A CARD THAT WAS A RECORD 20 INCHES LONG, AND HAD A DEDICATED 4x8pin POWER CONNECTOR HUB, AND IT WAS TRIPLE SLOT!!!
That would be the end of the world. Card would way more then a hand full of hardrives LMAO!!!!
I know that i was just pointing out how that must be a miss typed unless they really getting an 5970x2 with 4 gpu's out but that is unlikely that's way i put this smilly as yeah sure!...
I want E-peen 20inch HD5970x2 card to be made, benched under LN2 and way overvolted and overclocked, just so I can turn fraps on watching 100+ fps in crysis with a overclocked HD 5970x2 card, and a 5Ghz cherry picked i7 for underphase, just know that I CAN RUN CRYSIS of all games.
It isnt about "But can it run Crysis anymore" Its now about "But can it run GTA 4"
GTA 4 basicly turns crysis in to childs play, thanks to poorly coded port of awsomeniss.
But you have to admit when you have up to 300-400 objects with random physx, 10-20cars on the screen with physx at least, and 50+ AI doing random actions, while your rendaring big Viewdistance, And shadows are moving all around the map, because of fast time, then its ganna take a LITTLE bit resources from your computers pretty "performance"
and the tdp of a 5970X2 would be....
Lets just say my Corsair TX 750w would be out of buisniss, on be on the FS forums in a week.
It would have to be a dual PCB card and very difficult to cool.
XFX will probably Offer a combo on newegg, for a Single Stage Phase kit, with free shipping XD!!!!
No one is talking about the 555 BE. Odd.
It's another dual core.
Yeah I know but thats a BIG claim AMD is making calling it "The fastest dual core ever made."
Yup. Exactly the same as their other dual core CPU's with a higher clock. Nothing really new from AMD until we see the 6 core desktop CPU, then Bulldozer.
im sure the boys with the 8 thread I7s are shaking right now
Yeah! the fastest dual core ever made in all amd dual core cpu's , not intel cpu's
Thats not what they said. They say fastest dual core eva!
Another typo, to get people like us reading the article
i think a dual core over 3.2ghz (afik amd's former fastest X2, the 6400+) will appeal well to some people. wtih L3 cache and other improvements it will be great for gaming and other apps with few threads!
How about a 666BE with a red PCB substrate and flames on the IHS.
AMD says it will be the company's "fastest-ever dual-core CPU,"
I copied that from your quote, but I agree more dual cores :/ Curious what the 5970x2 is a typo for, what I'm eagerly awaiting is a 5870 2GB, After trying the horribly optimized GTA 4, I decided moving onto 2GB just to be safe is the best bet.
You do realize the X2 555 will utilize RB-C3 right?
I hate all of you!
