    And apparently the AM2 is getting pushed forward also:

    I sure hope they don't start pushing these things out the door buggy and unfinished. We already have games that do that.

    Will the AMD chips have DRM, too?

    I doubt it, AMD has never been much for DRM'ing processors. They never jumped on the Serial Number bandwagon in the early P4's.

    I think it's funny that the AM2 is now coming out 6 months before Conroe. Intel's pressure may have required that, but on AMD's release schedule we'll be seeing a new set of schips coming out around the time Conroe comes out that are certain to blow it out of the water.

    Here's hoping.
    Would love to see the look on Intel's chairman if that happens. But I am not getting my hopes up.
    Havent seen much as regarding to dates for AMDs next true upgrade (rather than AM2 being just a socket swap)


    not heard that regarding 6/6/06, should be funny :p

    AMD has been on a 6 month release schedule for several years now. I'd expect we'll be hearing from them sometime early this summer on their new line of chips.

    AM2 will be nice, though. quad-core (2x2) FX60's would really be awesome.

    This is so incredibly wrong it's hilarious. Satin? God damn :lol:

    I didn't know processors where going to be doing the DRM thing, looks like I've got another reason to switch to AMD.

    I'm partial to latex and leather. :mwink: Velvet and satin are pretty nice as well.

    So for the not-so-tech-savy-user, what do these new chips offer?

    I'm so happy to see AMD and Intel competing like this. This is great stuff.

    Well, for AMD, it means that it will beable to finaly use DDR2 ram (alot better than just DDR) Sorry, that's all I know about the new AM2 core.

    The Intel chip has a 30% increase in power @ 2.14ghz over the fastest AMD Athlon chip overclocked.

    So basicly, the Intel Conroe chip is going to blow any AMD chip outta the water....by 30%.
