AMD has taken a step forward when it comes to desktop performance, but one has to wonder what took Quad FX so long to come to market. It's been on the table and openly talked about since May of 2006, and why it's coming out the last week of November is beyond us. If you look through the smoke and mirrors of the marketing slides it's obvious that no new technology is on the table. The NVIDIA 680a chipset is really not much more than a couple nForce 5XX series chipsets paired together on a single board. The processors are a little different due to the new package, but that shouldn't take six months to bring to market. The end result is basically two FX-62 processors with a speed bump. Our test results showed this when we benchmarked the FX-74 against the FX-62 and the scores were basically doubled across the board.
