    If AMD wants to get a edge in this they need to price the 1100T at the 230 price point and drive the rest the hex cores down a couple bucks. That would kill the i5 lineup.

      I haven’t been following the Intel-AMD CPU wars very closely for a while now. I read that article and was surprised to see that AMD is actually kind of competitive with Intel.

      • Farting Bob
      • 9 years ago

      It would hurt intel in the 150-250 dollar range sure, but i doubt AMD can produce a chip of that size, complexity and speed profitably for $200. Not to mention unless it has something else to go above the 6-core right now then its just hurting it self more than intel.

        It’s silicon, not gold. They’ve already been selling X6s for $180 for a long time. The cores are tiny and adding two doesn’t cost them $50 more than a quad-core.

        Graphics cards would bankrupt everyone if high end CPUs were that constrained by silicon cost.

      LOL. i might just have to…. well done sir! It’s kinda funny actually. So many of you guys get annoyed about that, until you’re first! 😛

        You mean ‘first to post’ or ‘first to poke the troll’?? 🙂

          • 9 years ago

          I sense some irony in this, but can’t quite put my finger on it….

            • dpaus
            • 9 years ago

            Of course not – you can’t ‘poke’ something by ‘putting your finger on it’

        Did you install CSS yet?

        I was rolling with the TMP last night 🙂

          • yogibbear
          • 9 years ago

          TMP = crank up the firestarter and flashbangs and PWN everyone in the FACE! Best weapon for spraying at faces if you have skills and know the maps well enough. Works really well on dust 2, inferno and italy.
