whut about AMD Bulldozer??
Bulldozer after 2010....i think AMD will release more p ii x3 cpu's and some p ii x4 ........
OMFG why has no one told me this before, and yet it makes so much sense now that i think about it.... HT = "CISC WTF"
I mean P4... the clockspeed hype... the 'why-the-f*ck-is-this-so-slow-at-3.4-gHz' architecture... and then, look, HT!!! WHOA! haha..
*curses google* :shadedshu
Im supprised that noone has mentioned the 12 core amd chip
Does anybody know, AMD will release better CPU than P II 955 on AM2+?
what cpu??? PII 990?
The ONLY Phenom II that was AM2+ was the 940, the 955 is AM3, so no.
But, if we are talking about a CPU with a faster clock speed, they MIGHT release a 3.4Ghz CPU, but I doubt they will go higher.
I think they will focus more on fleshing out the mid and lower end of their CPU range. IE the Athlon IIs and Phenom II Dual-cores.
AMD wiil release it's TWKR edition soon...might be a higher clocked version with amazing overclocking capabilities....
Intel will release 6 core this year....so we can expect huge price drop and higher clocked P II versions x3 $ x4 this year....
Any specifications info for TWKRs? Would it be limited edition?
I read that will be limited edition, only for few testers.
some sites shows that they will release twkr after some tests.... :shadedshu
Final details will be available after 30th of Jun
who knows.. ...rumors ..rumors
would like to see phenom ii cpu's with more cache....
check this friends..
Intel is gng to make a big move.....wat can AMD do??
core i9?? hmm.. I think it will be really expensive.
AM2+ is being phased out as is DDR2. You never know, though there may be something better down the road. As far as near future goes, new ATi video cards in October and the RD890 chipset is slated for Q4 '09 so it's possible there could be new processors to go along with the new motherboards and cards.
i dont know if any one mentioned it but heres the AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1GHz i was wanting to put one in a new build for my mom and dad what MB would be good for it like an 790fx? all they do is surf the web they have like an old old computer its like 9 years old
Get a cheaper 780g, you won't have to pay for a video card then. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131324
this is what i was thinking of getting them http://img.techpowerup.org/090626/Capture018.jpg
Looks great for what they need.
very very iteresting just read this AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto 3.1GHz can be a quad core
FROM a REVIEW on NEWEGG
Pros: Cheap and very fast X2 processor. 80W vs 125W from the 6400+ it replaced. 6MB L3 cache. The two disabled cores 3 and 4 could be unlocked with a 790X/790GX/790FX mobo (please see other thoughts). Easily OC'ed to 3.6GHz with all cores activated. Black Edition so the OC'ers will love it.
Cons: As several reviewers said, the heatsink is cheap. You will want to replace it even if you don't plan to overclock it and/or unlock the last 2 cores.
Other Thoughts: I bought this CPU to replace the 6400+ on a 780G mobo. I read about how easy it was to unlock the cores and to overclock this CPU on a 790 mobo so I just wanted to see if I could do the same with my 550. I took the 955 out of the MA790XT-UD4P that has the latest BIOS F.4.G, put this one in, went to the BIOS to set ACC to Auto and EC Firmware Selection to Hybrid. Because AMD has changed the BIOS microcodes to prevent us from unlocking the cores on the 720 and 550, when we use the new BIOS versions, setting ACC to Auto alone might not allow us to unlock the remaining cores. We also will need to set the EC option to Hybrid to let the mobo run the latest firmware with the old microcode (thanks, Gigabyte!). After unlocking cores 3 and 4, I oc'ed it to 3600MHz, installed Vista Ultimate x64 then ran Prime95 for 12 hours with no problems. Next day, I ran CPU stress test with Everest Ultimate for 6 hours with no problems. Vista recognized the 4 cores as Phenom II X4 B50 and gave it a 5.9 PR.
there is no guarantee those other cores are perfect (if they are actually Quads with 2 cores disabled or are they a discrete dual)
Another P II X4 BE
coming next week...but i didn't like 17 multiplier....will it make any difference from P II 955's 16 multi ???
The multiplier is unlocked, the 17 is just for the .2ghz increase.
ya it is a BE edition...but will it shows better performance than the p II 955 ??? thats my doubt????
is it a factory overclocked p II 955 ??
waiting for more PII dual core
any news ?
