    AMD X2 6000+ For Sale early??

    http://www.pcper.com/comments.php?nid=3418

    Looks like either AMD wanted to counter Intel's Core 2 lineup a little bit faster or Newegg jumped the gun...

    So they're going to skip the fx-64 then or is the fx line moving to 1207?

    I would really like to have that processor the only problem is it cost really expensive even online.

    Around when do u think it will be released? as overclockers.co.uk doesn't have it yet.

    Also AMD is compiting with the latest Intel well AMD should make it much cheaper like £300+ and not £500+

    IS this then the best AMD processor? AMD 64 x2 6000? better than the FX

    If it doesn't hit at least 3.6-3.8 then it really is no competition for the Core 2 Duo at all (and even if does, the C2D is still way cheaper since you can get a 6300-6600 that will do those clocks). I'd like to see 4.0 out of them, and a price cut. However, with the same Windsor core, I don't see that happening.

    As far as being early, I doubt AMD is in a position to pull them from Newegg, and in fact probably gave them the go ahead to start selling.

    Unless you have phase cooling that ain't happening. My guess is they will OC very little.

    That's what it looks like.

    When the Agena comes out on the 1207 platfom it could very likely be untouchable. The platfom is just made to move data and with Vista the non-uniform memory access issues should be a thing of the past.

    Indeed. Looks like the same old Windsor core, pushed as far as it can go.

    Great. That will be interesting. Ya do have to wonder if this just isn't a bin pick of the best 90nm, and may not oc very well. So it's great you've got one to test.

    Its based on the 90nm proccess and still the same old AMD K8 architecture we have been seeing for how long? It prolly wont do more than like 3.2ghz. If it gets more than that, i would be shocked.
