AMD Introduces New Desktop Chips

intel has been beating the shit out of amd for so long, have they forgotten that there are REAL performance chips they should be battling against? with all of the intel i7 variants out there right now, it's just a bad joke to hear people talk about amd and performance.



Wouldn't it still be a better value to get the Athlon II X4 640 instead of the Phenom 560?  I read reviews of the Athlon 635 vs the Phenom 555 and the 635 took it in every test except single-threaded, so the 640 would take the 560..



I dont see the point of the Phenom 560, AMD already has other dual core Phenom IIs with unlocked multipliers... and they only kicked the multiplier up, so why does the 560 need to exist?

AMD shoulda pushed past the 1090T and come out with something better...



it needs to exist because AMD has greatly inferior fabrication technology compared to ARM's licensees or Intel

the only current generation AMD processors that 'real' chips not gimped with disabled cores either because they couldn't afford to test thoroughly enough to sell as they intended or because the manufacturing process failed miserably are their hexacores (1090T, 1075T, 1055T); AND its 965 & 945, 635 & 630, 600e & 605e for quadcores (even the Phenom II X4 955 is a gimped Phenom II X6 1055T) . . . pretty sad...I wish VIA would pickup its game so there'd be legitimate competition to Intel for the 2nd decade of the 21st century lol.

anyways, for my business & my friends the only AMD chips I'm willing to put my reputation behind are the Phenom II X4 945 && the Athlon II X4 600e which in my humble technical & business opinion are the only AMD processors worth buying . . . the 945 as an inexpensive performance quadcore (gamer on a budget scenario) and the 600e as a low-power HTPC although I prefer recommending a VIA C7 solution for that job
