So, with the prices Intel is going to sell these Conroes at, what is AMD to do? Who would pay $1000+ for an FX-62 when a $300 processor can outperform it? This should be an interesting year...

Perhaps with this news I can get an FX-60 (socket 939) dirt cheap in a few months and throw it in my rig! Sounds entirely possible to me.

AMD... they're just going to try and top it for less. It's what they do.

Do it too late, though, and the damage will be done to their profits.

Quite Interesting.

Oblivious. What is your estimate on the FX-60 (Or any other FX CPU below) price to drop too? It might be a wise investment for myself, as my 3700+ is having it's issues.

I'm praying for below $400. Maybe even closer to $300.

Perhaps that's being too optimistic. An unlocked multiplier would be awesome. I'd need better, overclockable ram though, something like what you just bought (ddr500)

Those are some nice prices. One of those might be in my next rig i'm planning on, unless AMD brings out something better at a similar price.
