AMD To Release 3 New Athlon 64 FX CPU's Around Mid November

Yep, AMD have to do something fast, especially with Intel's Quad core CPU just around the corner. But, have they produced too little - too late. Feel free to voice your opinion.

There's definately no question that AMD has fallen pretty far behind and haven't made any good attempts to catch up. Intel is taking a huge part of the market back while AMD slacks on the release of something that can perform equally or better than Intels Core architecture. I just hope that AM3 turns out to be something to compete because I love AMD to death but as long as they're getting stomped in the speed department Intel is the clear choice for me.

Not bad but I think they need to do something a bit more drastic than up the clock speeds

Welp, EOL for AM2 is here. As you can see AMD is really pushing their new socket, it being the base for their 4x4 and now their FX line. It's only a matter of time. I'm glad I didn't buy AMFAIL.
