AMD Desperate To Launch X2 6400+ Soon

According to DigiTimes, AMD is preparing to launch Athlon 64 X2 6400+ clocked at 3.2GHz on 90nm Windsor core to compete against Intel Core 2 Duo E6850. This processor will be the last of Athlon 64 X2 family before Phenom X4 comes along in Q4. Pricing will range between US$220-248 and is predicted to ship shortly. However, the performance of the X2 6400+ is still 10-15% below the E6850 and overclockability is limited.

AMD family

I have a feeling that with the release of this processor it will achieve the same result as others before it in the face of Intel's C2D processors. Another round to Intel...bring on Phenom!

Mr. Smith

.. VERY few virus'.



Ah but there is a reason for that, OS X has a small market share in comparison to MS.

MS OS's are used the world over by conglomerates down to everyday people like you and me.

To design an effective (i.e. nasty) virus you'd want it to affect as many systems/people/computers as possible. For that reason MS is the target. When OX S becomes a bigger contender, more virus will appear that target that OS.

Firefox's European market share has expanded greatly of late, so it will be interesting to see if more hijacks aimed at Firefox's back door will appear...

On topic - what Jim said tbh...

Hmm, when I were a lad, the virus` were created as many of the bedroom programmers were anti m$.

Let`s face it, these days u can write a multiplatform virus.

I heard vista was just rebuilt upon previous versions, same applies for xp and so on. Basically we are still running on a souped 16-bit interface?

i hope to god they actually make this one work good instead of spending too much time on aesthetics and pointless resource robbers.

At a lan over the weekend, the only vista machine was the only thing to cause network trouble. Why is it that a mac networks faster, easier and more efficiently to xp than vista! IMO Vista was a step backward, hopefully they make 2 steps forward with this one to get back where they should be!

I did have an inside tip a while back they were planning on releasing this in 2009........wonder if my XP will last that long as I sure don't want Vista.

Don't worry XP will be around for a while yet - Microsoft support for all flavours of XP doesn't end until April 2014 which gives them seven years to come up with another system worth formatting a drive for...

Edit: Makes you wonder if Vista really is a knee-jerk system rolled out of Redmond's back door half baked like Windows Millennium was?

Nah Vista isn't in the league of Win ME, it's got some good stuff

This time though I hope they get us a decent new filesystem

Agreed, ME was just something they should have gone out of business and been openly sued over.

Vista has got some quirky niceities, but at too much of an expense for my liking.

Doesn`t it alarm any1 in the industry that an open forum, with technically knowledgable, and less knowledgable (but however offering other talents), members could come up with a better OS on paper - than a market leader can come up with with over 20 years of trying - including the staff, code and funds in order to do it.

Well yes anyone could come up with a nice list of stuffs, but coding a whole OS to fit in with the monumentally HUGE amount of hardware it needs to support, across the HUGE userbase it needs to cater to...is another thing altogether
