This sound AWESOME! I'll be snagging one of the BE x6's when they come out =)
no CPU does not significantly increase performance.
On a single core application it does
I would buy one if I could put it on my 1366 socket mobo .
But that's impossible .
Some games, and others still only use one core. Also a lot of those physics simulations use less complicated math if there aren't as many CPU workers to make calculations. Game makers are still coding for dual cores mostly.
I know : [
But I can hope game devs start actually taking advantage of the hardware available right? lol
They'd do it to the hardware most available. That would be still dual cores.
What is the release date for these CPU's?
most notebook are still in dual cores.
Vista and Windows 7 now does automatically utilised most of your cores most of the time. Same with ubuntu and other distro
although you can get 3rd party to manually core each app for you
That's not true or metro 2033 would not exist
the 4xx cards arnt even out yet
The thing is its not hard to make an engine scalable at all, they just need to stop being lazy XD
Dev's need to stop being ass holes and make games perform the same on any GPU powered setup. Sick of this nvidia specific bullshit!
But back to OT, awesome pricing!
Really hoping the performance on these is comperable to the i7's...I'd love to take my HD 5870s to an AMD based platform.
I want one!!
What is the release date?
got my eye on that 1055T for $199...so irresistible
Way to go AMD
This will force Intel to release a new line up of Six cores processors with ~$300 to fight against AMD new processors !!
I want to see AMD break Intel head like what ATI did to Nvidia !!
i wasn't even considering a 6 core any time soon... but those prices are damned attractive
these will work with existing AM3 socket boards? not am2+ though, correct?
Why does this show 12mb of L3 cache while these are being "pre-advertised" as 9mb L3 cache? It also shows a DDR2 and 3 memory controller.
It actually shows 6 Mb of L3 Cache. It says "3 MB of 6 MB" twice, so it might me confusing. But it means 3 megs out of 6 megs. The 9 Mb that's being pre-advertised includes the L2 cache, 6 MB of L3 cache plus 512Kb L2 cache per core gives a total of 9 megs.
Interesting that they kept the DDR2 controller. That would mean that these Phenom II X6 would also run on AM2+ boards.
I wonder how much of a performance hit (if any) in memory AM3 chips take by having the ability to run both DDR3 and DDR2?
Low prices = Win!
I'm worried this won't be enough to make intel change any of their prices. For a number of apps an i7 930 will probably trade blows with this for the same price, but with about 300-500 mhz more overclocking head room despite starting at a lower clock rate.
I think my new goal is to get the money for a 8xx chipset a few GB's of DDR3 and a X6. It would be nice addition to my crunching farm
$199 for 1055T - nice price there. 2.8Ghz 6 core CPU is going to be the best selling one if not the BE.
This is definitely awesome, depending on the OCing potential I might pick up an X6 1055T to replace the X4 955
Can't beat 6 cores for $200 (assuming this would work on my GA-MA785GM-US2H)
6 Core OC Unit, bad ass!
Now we need some solid information on the 890FX chipset. Of course it will have USB 3.0 and Sata III, but what else? I just want to see if I'll actually benefit with going from a 790FX to a 890FX because my current board already accepts these newer chips.
