AMD Quad FX, real hardware pr0n!
AMD has just unveiled their new 4×4 system (2 chips with 2 cores each that means …) The new chipset integrates NVIDIA’s nForce 680a SLI chipset with AMD’s fresh Athlon 64 FX-70 dual-core processors to great effect, with clock speeds hitting 2.6, 2.8 and 3.0GHz for the FX-70, FX-72 and FX-74 processors. The 90nm chips include 2MB of L2 cache, consume no more than 125W of power, and can support 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM, all based on AMD’s Socket F workstation infrastructure.
The CPUs will cost you $599, $799 and $999 respectively. Add 4 Nvidia cards to this and a new motherboard and your wallet will suffer seriously.
