Thing interesting me is what market is open for these AMD cpus.
I feel they need to provide a 'need' to buy an AMD cpu. Existing AM2/3 owners will see them as attractive, but this market I think is both small and arguably only getting smaller.
If u have even an existing 775 setup, do u switch ? (similar argument to changing to anything - age of components maybe)
If ur older setup craps out, do u go AM2/3 or iX/775 ?
Without being an immediate 'got to get' I think it's too easy to overlook them. I can think of 100s of people who recognize these, and previous AMD models, are damn fine cpus - very respectable, and yet when the crunch comes they still won't go AMD<-Intel.
They need something. I've been a long advocate of them doing something special between their cpus and gpus. Something special that if u have 1 of the group, u can't experience, yet coupled together u get.... something.... They've got both techs in their labs for years now, it's about time they pushed something unique.
