They apparently are going to war against the multiple cooling solutions offered for desktop computers if we take a look at this news.

That is just insane!

Wow... 220 W.. TEC's might be worth doing again now..?

Trying to overcome Intel's Sandy/Ivy/Haswell per core and overall performance and efficiency through brute force  :)

 

Strangely there is something novel about a 220W TDP processor in today's world.

I feel like the Vantec Torndos might be poking their loud little fins back in for some cooling on these lol!

Wevsspot I still count low power consumption in the Efficiency part of the processor technology.

 

I doubt that 220W TDP is coming from a near zero power consumption.

 

Edit: Corrected a mistake in the word "technology"

I think it is just another nonsense article.

A processor with 220Watt of TDP will require something very big for cooling - which is not possible at all.

I would call BS on that, I'm not sure an AM3+ board would be able to supply 220W of power to the CPU.

I am picturing a CPU with a bunch of female power plugs coming out of it like a video card lmao!

My first thought was what kind of OCing can these new CPU's achieve? 5.5? 6? 7? :woot:

If they get that high they will probably need a dedicated power supply and auxiliary power connections on the motherboard  :)

Yeah.. I'm gonna throw in with the bull crowd. AMD may very well be preparing some new higher-clocked models to somewhat answer Haswell, but not this. Obviously, that TDP is ridiculous, but they also don't fit AMD's naming scheme.

 

FX-4xxx => 4 core /2 module

FX-6xxx => 6 core /3 module

FX-8xxx => 8 core /4 module

 

an FX-9000 doesnt fit this profile for an 8 core chip.

 

in addition, compared to their previous FX flagship chips, the 8150 and 8350, we're likely to receive a refresh with the moniker 8550 first before any 8770 or 9000, and the highest they'll likely go would be 8990, for an 8 core.

 

Now if they came out with a 5 module/10 core FX-10xxx, that i'd like to see  :D
