OK. So I've been hearing some things about this off and on. but remember the Athlon 64 FX.. that used to be the best of the best until the Core 2 Duo came out and wiped the floor with it. But read this...
Controversial news that AMD will be releasing a performance quad core CPU under the name Phenom FX. Two models are supposedly in the mix named the FX-80 clocked at 4GHz, and the FX-82 clocked at 4.4GHz.
The news that sparked the debate which is now spread across many sites now, that a site called Reviewage in the UK had a screenie of CPU-Z running a 45nm Phenom @ 4GHz. Reviewage claim they spotted the image on a UK computer store website.
Even after the original link provided was broken (which also brought up thoughts that this is fake). Now reviewage have posted once again the picture of the CPU-Z screenie here
They also claim that the FX-80 outperforms
an Intel Kentsfield clocked @ 5GHz, but this still a rumor has not yet been proven. However the screenshot of the 4GHz Phenom leaves many wonder, has someone faked a CPU-Z... or does AMD in fact have a hand their yet to deal in their CPU battle with Intel?
If you have found anymore news about this, or have something you would like to share/add, then please!
