HOw about X4 975 @ 3.6Ghz, this one should be good too. Maybe prices will go down for the x4's once the 6's come out :)

The way it looks is AMD is going to discontiune the Deneb sooner or later and replace them with the 9X0T X4s from locking X6 dies.
If the yields are good enough, why makes so many different dies? They got the low-end Athlon IIs which pretty much replaced the low end Phenom IIs.

this could be a hard pressed comparison. On one hand you have AMD, where you have to buy a mobo with coincided chipset to run nvidia or ATi Multi-GPU, with an unlocked cpu, and save cash on your build. Or, you buy an X58, pay through the nose for an unlocked CPU, but you can switch between nvidia/ATi multi-gpu setup in the blink of an eye.

6-cores, 125W TDP, 3.2 GHz, 9 MB cache for the same price as a Intel i7-930? The first time that AMD is slapping Intel all over the room in these recent years :nutkick:. I'm going to get one of these paired with a Asus Crosshair IV Formula when they come out. I don't think Intel will drop their prices because of this. Intel never drops prices.

Too bad though that the 1090T Black Edition is coming in Q3, later than the other ones. Atleast according to Fudzilla. I hope it isn't true.

Both CPU will be 6 cores. You probably thought that because one will be called X5 that it is going to be a 5 core. Well you're mistaken both are 6 cores ;)

There are no "X5" chips, but there are going to be "X4" chips (codenamed "Zosma", carry a "T" in the model number), that are based on the same die. You can probably unlock it to X6.

I would be really surprise if AMD actually sell 2 enable cores ones from a 4 failed core :roll:
Perhaps cover to the rest of x2 x3 x4 x5 x6 lines from the same chip with bad cores

I think there's some confusion because you called the 1055T a "Phenom II X5" processor in your news post. ;)

Is it supposed to be "Phenom x5" in the first post then?

Its listed as "Phenom x6" all other places.

Typo maybe?

Intel being 32nm, less TPD and its Tri channel(likely those 1366 socket?)
No doubt that will be going to i9
It's just unfair to say AMD's chips will cause Intel to change their strategy. 6 core machines won't beat the 920, but they might get close to matching it. Intel has 8 threads that overclock from 2.66GHz to 4.0GHz without much effort. Their 12 thread processors are at $1000 and they don't intend to do anything less with the 6 cores until after 2010.

Yeah, i knew the price would be $999, but damn, anything can happen... It isn't hurt to hope!
:p That's a lot to hope for as it won't happen any time soon. Intel has other more pressing things to sell to consumers than 6 core, 12 thread, uberchips.

atm 980x i7 dont really add up much fps in games compared to OCed 920s i7
If 32nm were to come out, we could hit 4.5g on air with atleast 5-10% behind the 980x i7
AFAIK AMD is really good with price war
Bulldozer should be out in Q1 2011 said wikipedia lol. Hopes it slightly better than 980x i7

I have to laugh infinitely more.... You're saying that the CPU changes game performance significantly? Dude... can I have some of what you're smoking?

I don't see anything beyond i7 can improve gaming performance.

Games that use the cpu for physics simulations : ]

More cores = more POWA
