I think that the Quad FX project had some serious potential, but was really hurt by a lot of things. A- The only CPUs that came out for Socket F were the FX-series things. If there were some budget offerings, then we might have seen better adoption of Socket F. B- AMD made no indication that they were moving everything to Socket F, which would have pushed everyone to Socket F. C- Socket F motherboards, especially dual-socket F motherboards, were expensive. If there were budget offerings, Socket F would be just like Socket AM2. D- There was nothing really special about Socket F, other than it was unique, and allowed you to stick two dual-core CPUs in. And it was more expensive to do than just get a better-performing Intel Q6600 and P35 motherboard. Better luck next time AMD.
