AMD FX chips arrive, take eight-core mainstream

10/12, 12:50am

AMD FX processors hit eight cores

AMD staked out at least a short-term lead in desktop processors Wednesday with its first-ever eight-core processors for the home in its FX series. The 3.1GHz FX-8120 and 3.6GHZ FX-8150 have a two-core advantage over current Intel chips without sacrificing top speed. The FX-8120 can speed up to 3.4GHz in a Turbo Core mode by selectively managing the active processors, and up to 4GHz in a maximum mode shutting down key cores; the FX-8150 ramps up to 3.9GHz in its middle Turbo mode and 4.2GHz at its peak.

Gateway FX Upgrade in Apr

Gateway is finishing its week with a significant upgrade to its FX Edition gaming notebooks that brings its first mid-size models. Previously limited only to the 17-inch P series, the FX name is now attached to the M series with a new model that provides relatively quick performance at a smaller size. The M-6850FX is slightly slower than the base P series with a 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo and uses the cooler-running Radeon HD 2600 to provide better-than-average 3D to a category often neglected by PC builders. It also leaves little necessary to upgrade with 3GB of memory and a 320GB hard drive as stock. Gateway sells the system at retail shops for $1,000.
