AMD preps the launch of the 4x4 platform (FX70-74)

Tom hardware, friday 3 nov.. TGDailly

new roadmap obtained by TG Daily, however indicates quite the contrary and the suggests that AMD may be collecting enough supply of new and high-end processors to launch 4x4 almost as a mainstream product and become more available than Intel's quad-core processors QX6700.

4x4 is apparently well on track to be launched in November with FX processors that are based on the new 1207 socket and the 90 nm Windsor FX core. Samples already have been shipped and appear to be in mass-production at this time. The lineup consists of the FX-70 (2.6 GHz), FX-72 (2.8 GHz) and FX-74 (3.0 GHz). In the second quarter of 2007, AMD will add the FX-76, which will be the last 90 nm high-end desktop processor with a clock speed of 3.2 GHz.





Illustration of AMD 4x4
The Windsor FX CPUs will continue to use a 2 MB L2 cache package and will be rated at a thermal design power (TDP) of 125 watts, which - at least theoretically - puts a 4x4 platform at roughly 250 watts, or about twice the maximum power of Intel's Kentsfield (desktop) and Clovertown (workstation/server) quad-core processors. The currently shipping FX-62 and FX-60 will not support 4x4 and will be phased out by the end of this year.

The enthusiast segment will get more interesting for AMD once its "native" quad-core processors are available. While it is not expected that the single-die quad-core approach by AMD will not yield any substantial performance gains over a dual-die quad-core approach (Intel), AMD will be able to decrease power consumption to restore headroom for more clock speed. The quad-core chip code-named "Agena" will be segmented in more mainstream "Agena" processors and enthusiast 4x4 capable "Agena FX" chip.

4x4 does that mean 16 cores??? It better be fast or AMD is in trouble.




What motherboard is that Lane??? "INLINE4 SLI Deluxe" or "BLING4 SLI Deluxe" ?????

Dual CPU, no active cooling or heatfins on (dual??) MCH/NB, four PCI-Ex slots, no IDE HDD port and TWELVE sata ports??????

Asus (Don't know the real def/name) socket 1207 or socket F... in some months, the new socket F+ will arrive.. the FX 70->74 (2x CPU dual core in a box..) will be compatible with the old/actual and new socket F+..

I hate using dual CPU rigs, you're always hearing the CPU fans slipping in and out of harmony. It's damn annoying.

Anyway, shouldn't it be called 2x2 not 4x4?
