Gulftown (6 Core) CPU could be here by end of March

Postby kenc51 » Sun Jan 31, 2010 10:29 am

According to Digitimes Intel and AMD will be coming out with their 6 core cpu's very soon.

AMD's "Thuban" by May and Intels "Gulftown" the end of March.

Intel's chip will work with any x58 mobo (125W+ TDP support req) after a Bios update.
AMD's chip will work on the yet to be released 890FX & 890GX chip sets. They plan to launch these late March / early April.

I don't know about you, but can't wait for the lower wattage 6 core chips ;)

More core definitely means a bigger ePen. However, I have yet to see very many applications outside of video editing/encoding that use all four cores on my Core2Quad.

who said anything about 'could' be here ;)

Intel has had these CPUs ready for a number of months already and have already sent out trays of these CPUs to key customers, system builders and analysts. A Q1 launch is a fairly safe bet.

Best thing about this is how cool it runs.
20 degrees @ 4.43GHz, and it's not like I've got phase change.
