We have received some
interesting info on AMD's new range of Socket AM2 processors.
According to internal AMD documents, system builders will be able to
purchase the new AM2 processor starting on May 15th.
core and single core Athlon 64 processors will be available as well
as 64-bit Sempron processors.
According to our previously
AMD's Athlon 64 FX-62 will be the company's top desktop offering for
the remainder of the year. It is not until Q1 of 2007 that we will
see the FX-64 hit the market. All other AM2 processors are officially under embargo until June 6, 2006.
quote: On the other hand, maybe AMD has some tricks up it's sleeves if it is indeed pricing these CPUs confidently.
quote: AMD seems to have taken a page from Intel's pricing strategy. FX-62 at $1300? WTF!?! Intel's EE processors got a lot of criticism about its price at "only" $1000.
quote: Who would buy a $200-dollar, brand spanking new AM2 motherboard, and over $100-dollars for shiney new DDR2 RAM and then get a frickin $67-dollar Sempron??? That is just hysterical lol.
