AMD Cans Plans to Introduce Next-Gen FX Microprocessors Next Year.
220W not even 'supported' with the first 990FX 140W mobo's. I want to upgrade the CPU but the 9000 series would be a last resort upgrade for AM3+. Sad.
I did at one time say that I didnt care how much it cost or how much power it used I just want a faster CPU. But its abnormal getting a CPU that cant be air cooled.
Sucks as an AMD desktop fan but. That being said though I am happy that the company under Rory Reid is actually being run now as a legitimate business and moved out from under Intel's shadow.
Business is about making money and that's something AMD have not been able to do for many years now. It's a large boat to turn but he's steering them in the right direction I feel.
Better business = More money = More R&D resources = better CPU's = More competition = win for the consumer
if there is future Fx chips will be fm-based. if it stalls or has to low a adoption rate well see dev pick am3+/am4 fx back up.. and maybe a new cpu by REALLY late 2014 early 2015. but it will be a tweak as there will not be enough time to spin new silicon.
If they move to 28nm, the chips will be cheaper to manufacture, thus allowing for better profit and more competitive prices. The decision might actually be a good idea as fighting the i7 4770K could be quite difficult.
Build a future FX 8450 run at 4.2 GHz (with a top Turbo frequency of 4.5 GHz) and sell it for 175$ while it uses just 65W and you'll surely have a winner.
That will be a good upgrade for any AM3+ owner.
Once 14nm comes out of Intel, AMD is pretty much dead. Intel will be able to fit even more graphics horsepower on the die, all while using even less power. They're betting all their chips (no pun) on APU's but Haswell already showed that Intel is plenty capable of doing "good enough" garphics.
I've said several times now that AMD is clearly just coasting into either bankruptcy or a buyout. To sum up AMD:
-Laughable IPC. Easily 2 years behind Intel nowadays.
-No server presence
-6 months behind Nvidia (Nvidia had 6 months to fully deploy the 700 series line and charge premium prices).
-3:1 outnumbered in pro graphics marketshare
But hey, at least they're getting paid $20 for every console sold. Just need to sell one to every person on earth and maybe they'll make as much as Intel makes.
