    Personally I'm excited about all the new chips coming out not only from Intel and AMD but even the new 64bit IBM chip powering the new Macintoshes.
    Me too.......

    I never once said anything about the new chips being bad...I would build an AMD system, if the price and performance were right at the time. I don't see why you think I am biased, as I am not at all. I know enough about both sides of the business that I can make informed decisions. It is basically two ways to make a processor...

    So, if you would quit directing harassing comments towards me it would be greatly appreciated, as I have never directed any sort of harassment toward you. This is a message board, know that everyone is entitled to an opinion. To get so worked up over stupid computer parts is well, stupid.

    The Opteron and the Athlon64 are not the same thing. No pricing structure (to my knowledge) has been announced for the Athlon64 or the FX. Quit farting! :p

    this 50 year old kid, has passed gas longer than you, i imagine, woodrow............and, it's hard to change your spots...........but there you have it, the prices have been leaked for awhile, and without dual channel.......... as the opteron's 140 series were designed for dual channel on a single processor board..........939 will be pricey 1st quarter @ 6 bills, while other 64 prices drop, fairly rapidly if i read the launch specs correctly

    The Athlon FX (the expensive one) is basically a renamed Opteron without the dual CPU capability.

    and, the 140 series of opterons were designed to be single processing units albiet w/ dual channel.......until the 939 arrives........the release of the 754/940 will occur first, leading to the dual channel capabilities of the chip/939, so they can soak you for more for the feature.............look, it's intel jr. :thumb:
    here's a link to some benchmarks http://www.extremetech.com/article2/...1217318,00.asp and remember, the prices reflected in this article have dropped significantly as posted previously..errrr ....uhh oh, read it and weap http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=11371

    I'm very hesitent to accept all these rumours. Until something official and tangible is available from resellers for an advertised price it's all just speculation.

    Even after they announce an official price it's likely someone will be offering it cheaper the next week.

    I'm not going to be first in line to buy one anyway because I'm not the type to go out and buy the latest and greatest right off the bat (an Nforce2 motherboard being a rare exception in my case last November).

    ASUS is working a deal with AMD to try and bundle the new processors with its boards. That would rock, considering ASUS is probably the #1 board manufacturer (they did start it all, after all).

    We'll see how pricing works out with that...
