Reviewage - AMD Phenom FX - Kentsfield Beater (http://reviewage.co.uk/content/view/33/1)


There's said to be two chips in the pipeline, the FX-80 at 4Ghz and the FX-82 at 4.4GHz.
The FX-80 at stock out performs a 5.0GHz Kentsfield.


The Deneb core apparently has
a multiplyer of up to 25x!

This image was spotted on a UK computer shop website, maybe a hint
of the arrival of the Phenom FX?/

Only 2mb L2 cache though, it's gonna have a hard time doing alot of multitasking.

srs. 6 months if your lucky, only longer if you paid up the butt for your stuff.

Getting out dated quickly is really standard, however if you make good choices you can keep chuggin' for years. My AMD x2 3800+ and nvidia 7800GT are just beginning to feel their age.

Yeah I mean good hardware will last a decent while, unless you're the kinda guy who always needs the tip top highest brand new stuff, which in that case you'll be doing full overhauls often.

Oh, I plan to very shortly. I seem to get these bills thrown at me for no reason, just as I get enough money for an upgrade.

****ing tickets.

Customers ask me all the time how long the computer their buying will stay up to date, I always tell them its outdated as soon as they walk out.
