View Full Version : AMD kills Quad FX platform
Now I am even less interested in a Phenom CPU...
AMD diverts resources from the Quad FX platform development the same year it promises Quad FX is the enthusiast future
After all the promises ad statements by AMD that Quad FX was the companies enthusiast future, AMD has apparently decided to all but kill the platform off. The few enthusiasts who plunked down the big dollars required to adopt the platform should be feeling a bit uncomfortable right now.

AMD excited many technology enthusiasts last year when it introduced the Quad FX platform. AMD representatives touted this platform as the next big thing from AMD.

Amdwoflman i know what you saying, but it does not relate to what is happening to the AMD Quad FX withdrawl. Your correct about at times 1 x FX OCed will do better in certain tests then a Quad FX setup, but that all depends as you cna OC both of those Quad FX processors as well and get better or similar results as 1 x FX that is OCed.
AMD is stopping any production right now as they simply don't have the resources = money to continue to produce Quad FX at thsi time. They will however continue their support for thsoe who purchased this setup which is a socket F platform using Quad FX capability.
AMD has to cut production on something as lately they have faulter in the phenom line which coincides with the Quad FX designs. If phenom is screwed then FX platform is also, so they are not going to continue for the present time a Quad FX platform.
Here is a review done on Quad FX in 11/29/2006.
Gaming performance Intel Quad-Cores whomped it anyways and in certain test a single dual core FX62 out beat 2 x FX 74 processors in FPS:
