AMD AMD Spring 2011 Phenom II Lineup, Plus Noctua NH-D14 Review @ Rage3D.com

AMD launched several new processors this month, and we've got Noctua's monstrous NH-D14 CPU cooler to keep their temps out of the red zone. AMD is realigning their cores and branding to accommodate APUs, and prepare for Bulldozer - check out how the fastest ever AMD quad core performs with a beastly twin tower dual fan cooler.

ROFL! All this time i didn't realise my am2+ board would take an am3 chip till i read your review seems asus keep my bios current so i could easily ditch my 3.0x4BE @ 3.5 and see about getting one of those new 3.6x4BE to 4Ghz or more.

Lineup sure is getting crowded. Hopefully AMD will continue to thin the ranks as Llano and Zambezi approach. Personally, I don't see much value in having closer than maybe $50 spacings for each product offering, and think its time to retire single & triple core models.

On the OEM/System Builder side of the fence, product differentiations at only $10-$20 difference can help them hit specific performance, pricepoints and margins without compromising hugely on either one. The more flexibility there is the easier it is to sell a platform.

That means on the consumer side you get a lot of closely stacked models, which can be a pain to trawl through.

Damn it all, I still want my 95W 6 core Phenom II .. looks like there wee only a couple that made it out into the wild a 1035T in OEMs only...

Keep watching for the 1065T, that's 95W. Should be in stores in Feb. priced around $199.

Tasty! I don't like AMD's current TDP rating system... as as measured it will draw significantly more from the wall than a same rated intel equivalent, but lower power for more cores is welcome. The prices are pretty decent for the new X4s, but can this old architecture really keep up with sandy bridge's pricing scheme... it seems like intel took that a bit more seriously than the 1156 line and you can get a decent quad core chip without too much cash from them now.

why pay almost 200 bucks for an AMD if you can get a much moer powerfull Sandy Bridge for around the same money

exactly.... I'd have to buy a new motherboard (+150-250) and the cost of a sandybridge (+200-300).. so we're talking $350-550 where as $200 will get me a drop in upgrade that is more than capable of playing games, encoding etc..

If you've bought AMD ever since the DX2-66 days, and will never buy Intel again so long as AMD still 'breathes'?
Yes, I just went there

-If you had an i5 or something you'd still have to fork out the money for both a motherboard AND a sandy bridge CPU.
-If you had an i7 you'd probably wouldnt bother, but again you'd still have to fork out money for both a motherboard AND a sandy bridge CPU.
-If you had an AMD you'd definately have to fork out money for a new motherboard and a sandy bridge CPU, and if you used DDR2 RAM you'd have to get new ram as well.
-If you had an AMD (AM2+ or AM3) you'd just get the AMD CPU and be on your way.
-If you're made of money you wouldnt give a crap and probably have an i7 980X already.
