    A little update on this chip:
    You can overclock QX9650 to 3.60Ghz with stock HFS and without increasing voltage and it's stabled.

    This chip have a lot of head room for higher frequences or OC, just hook this baby up with X38 or later chipsets, DDR3 (still too much money for a little performace gain thought), water cooling, increase the voltage a bit and let it rips. You can get over 4Ghz easily and stable. That's the news, I'm personal haven't experience yet. Can't afford it at the moment. Maybe I will put this on my wish list for xmas

    QX9650 3Ghz is the only chip available to the comsumers at the moment. Can't wait till Intel releases the mainstream chips.
    Hopefully, the Phenom will be able to compete with this Penryn then Intel will drop it prices and release a higher stock frequence as they initially promised @ 3.33Ghz. They released 3.0Ghz for now because AMD has no other chips can stand shoulder to shoulder with Intel's new 45nm. The only chip is right behind QX9650 butt is QX6850. Therefore, Intel is safe and they are on a cruse control mode now.

    Any how, Penryn is just a small jump in the performance comparision to the quad core Kentsfield sibbling. There will be a big jump from Intel by late next year 2008, when they release the mother of the monster Nahalem CPU. This chip is based on AMD's quad platform design, it is four individual core die. This upcoming CPU only accept some of P35, X38 or later chipset MOBOs only.

    So boys and girls if you are planning to upgrade your new MOBO this xmas make sure your new board support Penryn and upcoming Nahalem CPUs.

    if you heard this on XS i'd be more inclined not to believe this will happen for most people. I followed that forum for years and you start to realise it's all cherry picked hardware and lucky, normal guys who post about the big overclocks that create a buzz, and i'm not talking about those with phase change. They are all website press people or company reps. That place went down hill many years ago.

    I'm certainly interested in Penryn, but not the Extreme version this time.

    Is it true the estreme chips have unlocked multipliers making overclocking even easier?

    it's true, but because they already have a high multi it makes the need for even higher ones a little defunct.

    No those info is not from XS forum.
    I'm a Maximum PC reader. They did a review on a QX9650 and benched it with QX6850, Penryn is 10% faster.

    Read up on the new chip, its faster yes, but supposedly uses 135 watts of power, which will mean a TON of heat, and it only supports DDR3, which is way to expensive for the average user. The new Phenom's are backwards compatible with hypertransport 1 & 2, use like 40 watts of power, run REALLY cool and come with an OC utility designed by AMD to allow on the fly OC of the four cores individually. To upgrade to the new intel chips you would need to spend like $2000 on the mobo, cpu and ram alone.

    You're talking about QX9650, this is an extreme version chip and the only chip is available at the moment. You have to wait to next year, Intel will release the mainstream chips then you can pick and choose the one you can afford.

    What do you mean only support ddr3?
    Mem controler doesn't embeded onto the cpu. Are you talking about FSB 1333? MOBO control the FSB. Yes, Penryn is not compatible with a lot of old boards. Only boards with P35 and X38 chipsets or later.

    Any Quad Extreme versions run at 135w power, wait until next year get the lower speed chip with lower power consumsion.
    However, Penryn has more head room for overclocking. If you think Conroe or Kensfield were good wait until you have your hands on this chip.

    Have heard the latest new about AMD?
