Is it my imagination, or did the am2 5000, 2.6g chipset disappear off the face of the earth since the price-cut wars ?

No it's not. Only system builders have them and from the news it seems like Dell has A LOT.

Monarch Computer has barebones' with it.

Really? Dell has ALOT of 5000 huh...Dell will be building alot of low end computers using a $300 chip instead of of using the $130 3800. I doubt that. I personaly thing that the 5000 will be the chip that Amd will try to pump us with to use the 4X4.

That sound like a prime candidate for one of those $10,000 water cooled monsters from Dell. If AMD wants this to succeed soemone has to sell them. who better than Dell?

I would think that the 3600+ would be the other main chip for Dell initially. Tha takes care of all market segments with peripherals being different.

If you want just the chip, it's hard to say when it will ramp in retail. Everywhere I've seen it's only in systems and barebones. if you're needing an upgrade, I wouldn't wait. You can always turn up the HT and run at 2.6GHz.

There is no way to do that. FX and X2 are exactly the same except for cache. What they will be doing is taking a selet few X2s and turning on the 2nd HT link. That way they can keep the stock of FX while still selling FX-squared(4x4).


I would expect that the first systems will be VooDooPC since they were one of the representatives at the demo/launch. Dell could possibly get their first dollar from me next year if they pick this up.


Kudos to CorvetteGuy for FX-squared.

this is the best thread derailment ive ever seen
-agreed

remember kids, hijacking a thread and derailing is different, derailment takes a while ie sum1 makes a topic about the apache that killed the iraqi insurgeants, next person may debate that the car is white or blue, then at the end of the thread you will see ppl debating about super cars VS nascar
