AMD Quad FX Hits Retail

The Athlon 64 FX-70 series and ASUS L1N64-SLI WS may be available in retail but only two retailers carry the necessary Quad FX products: Newegg and ZipZoomFly. Neither retailer, however, has the required ASUS L1N64-SLI WS motherboard in stock although both sport a hefty price tag (Newegg demands $429.99 and ZipZoomFly demands $379.99). AMD's greatest worry is not whether the motherboard will come into stock, for it certainly will, but whether the new architecture will catch on.

Normaly, i would go out and get one of these, but Socket AM2 is fine for me for a long time yet!
plus... i kinda dont have any money at the moment! DOH!

ZZF has been putting the pressure on Newegg lately. Free shipping for most things, like Newegg used to have, and now undercutting them on price by $60 for this? Competition is good! Go ZZF!

Until you have a problem with something you purchased from ZZF and go through hell trying to get it replaced. NewEgg bends over backwards and sideways for its customers. That type of business attitude well outweighs free shipping and a few dollars less in price.

You know this system is very poweful but no matter what many websites out there try to do a comparison the wrong vs the core 2 platform. To be honest you just can not compare this to any Intel product because the purpose of such a machine does it better than any competition. Let them benchmark 4 benchmarks at once and see what the outcome is. This is a multi tasking monster and for the price it's damn cheap.

Although I like this system, I will avoid it until they release 65nm chips for it. The new stuff is just around the corner so I will wait regardless.
