    But of course.. Some of us (the enthusiasts) will pay the price to play with the biggest, baddest toys around.

    Me? I'll just keep dreaming..

    lol, didn't I say this on the 25th? ;)

    in reference to the FX60 not being in line with the numbering scheme for the current single core FX chips? FX55=2.6ghz FX57=2.8ghz FX59=3ghz FX60(uh-oh, even number, probably a dual 2.8ghz w/unlocked multiplier :eek: )


    **EDIT** Just a little bit more info on Dual core FX's (speculation mostly, but in line with what we are discussing)

    A Bit-Tech link on the subject

    I'll just say that I have independent 'strong feelings' from your post. ;)

    I'm the seventh son of a seventh son, a seer if you will.


    Evidence?

    AMD and IBM have extended their chip fabrication process development pact, the two companies confirmed yesterday.

    The agreement will see the pair co-operating on the technologies used to produce processors at 32nm and 22nm, and will centre on research in transistor design, interconnects, lithography and ways to connect a die to the package. The deal will run through to 2011.

    I highly doubt any of these goes into M2. But it's interesting what's around the corner.
