Id like to see some games benches
we shall see in due time anyway i find the results intresting but ill wait till real reviews are up
i think this chip came out just in time as im considering what my next build will be - I could well be going back to AMD if this chip pulls through - though I would want to see what the scores are like in direct comparison to a i7
that 1055t is mine!!!
Just think of the PPD you'd get with crunching with one of these....
as far as i know a 1055T seems to use the same wattage as a 965 BE C2 and has about the same heat lvls so a good cooler should allow these 6 core cpus to hit 3.6 or so on air which isnt bad when u think about it for for a locked chip thats speculation of course but cherry picked 940s can hit 4ghz and most PIIs have about 800mhz of clock speed in them so id say 2.8 = 3.6 average air overclock mileage may very
what the hell are you talking about, it's even still compatible with AM2+
if you looked above and saw the post then you would see WHAT is was talking about, relaxe!
damn feel as a fool getting core i7 860
you shouldnt, i still find the new p55 platform one of the best atm, mainly because you can have either SLI or CF without changing MB as with the AMD boards youd have to get another board, and since AMD and Nvidia wont be doing work together on the new boards then that is not gonna happen and you restricted to crossfire only,
yeah... who'd want SLI anyway, when the current cards are fermi?
i'm iffy on P55 due to it being PCI-E 1.0 only. screws up plans for USB3.0 add in cards, for one.
So can someone enlighten me as to what benefits 890FX has to offer over the current enthusiast AM3 platform 790FX? I just scored a UD5P for a very, very good deal (seriously, very good) and want to make sure I'm not making a mistake.
Native SATA 6 Gb/s, built on 40 nm (cooler).
and they tend to come with USB3.0 as well (even if its not part of the chipset natively)
Yeah, most 890FX boards will have that NEC chip, and it will be wired to the 890FX NB (and not SB850), with a PCI-E 2.0 x1 link.
Also, naturally it will have higher future-proofing. Sure, recent 790FX boards will be able to support X6, X4T, but not what's next.
What can possibly be next? I don't see AMD releasing native 8-12 core processors for AM3 anyway. That's going to be for Bulldozer which is on a different socket.
So if USB 3.0 is the only benefit then I guess I have nothing to lose by sticking with 790FX. I can always buy an add-in card for SATA/USB 3.
Thanks for the replies guys.
Hope it works with am2+, so i get a smooth upgrade path
the CPU will for sure, not sure about turbo mode or any other new features.
There is talk that Bulldozer will continue to run on the AMx socket.
I've heard talks about yes and no, so confused, and all the working, and traveling stealing valuable research time
the old PHII am2+ becomes a vmware esxi node like all my prev comps, wonder what i will run now. need better internet connection and maybe i can host more crap =)
Really the reason why i buy amd, cause i can add them to the esxi cluster =) got an intel for nas tho
my friend six core now same price as my 860
Am I missing something? I don't think that is true.
EDIT: I see chipset lanes, my mistake.
Loving the blue color, but their boxes typically are more green with some gold and black, this is all bluey and I likey.
