    The Quadfather Makes Us An Offer We Can Refuse

    Intel QuadCore's superiority in performance/Watt benchmarks rips AMD's stop gap, quick fix QuadWattSuckerFX a new ahole. Intel Quad Zilla will eat huge market share and will be the only logical QuadCore solution. Nvidia's G80 will be the logical Vista DirectX10 solution. AMDATI got NOTHING!

    AMD's QuadWattSucker is the MOTHER of ALL MOBO FIASCOs and it's market share will be Lilliputian, bitsy, bitty, diminutive, dwarf, dwarfish, infinitesimal, insignificant, itsy-bitsy, itty-bitty, little, microscopic, midget, mini, miniature, minikin, minim, minuscular, minuscule, minute, negligible, pee-wee, petite, pint-sized, pocket, pocket-size, puny, pygmy, slight, teensy, teensy-weensy, teenty, teeny*, trifling, wee, weensy, weeny.

    read it and weep.

    "Well, I've been looking through the benchmarks, and the universal feeling is that we are less than impressed.

    but it can't seem to regain the performance crown at anything.

    When you combine that with the issues of two separate chips running on a motherboard, and the necessity of a 600 watt power supply (or more), and we start to get that sinking feeling that we don't want this.

    On top of that, the Core 2 Duo's run a lot cooler than this QuadFX, and I'm starting to think the only reason to buy one is to write a comparison article of how much better Intel's chips are this week.

    Despite all the anticipation, the QuadFX ends up being more smoke and mirrors than serious firepower in the chip wars. Then again, I can't find a single QuadFX chip for sale in either a system, or as a processor. In the end, AMD is making it easy for the performance crowd to flock to the Intel side."

    • If you stupid enough to accept glued dual cores as qual cores, it is good for you, you are deserve to have junk, I bet your house full of them.

      • read it and weep Amdroid,

        The AMD QuadFX platform launched today, including the impressive FX-7x series processor. However, initial testing shows even two FX-74 dual-core processors when paired still fail to best the Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700 quad-core processor for both performance and power efficiency.

        Throughout our entire suite of benchmarks, a system powered by Intel's quad-core Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor outpaced all of the QuadFX-based systems. The Intel-powered system also generally scaled better moving from two to four cores in the multi-threaded benchmarks. Our in-game tests and PCMark05's memory performance module put the QuadFX platform at a disadvantage versus AMD's own socket AM2 dual-core platform, but in all of the multi-threaded application and rendering tests, QuadFX was significantly faster than a similarly equipped system powered by an Athlon 64 FX-62

    • Nobody will want a AMD/ATI Quadblunder box except for a few AMD fanatics. Most people will chose Intel's QuadCore box over a AMD/ATI's Quadblunder box. Sorry but true.
