AMD Agena FX - the fastest quad-core gaming processor?

Posted on Tuesday, April 10 2007 @ 18:44:37 CEST by

While Barcelona is a quad-core server processor, AMD also has the quad-core Agena FX processor for high-end gaming PCs. Both processors will be based on AMD's new K10 architecture and will be presented to the press on April 23rd and 24th in Tunisia.

Here's some info about the K10 and Agena FX, coming from a slide from AMD over at FUD Zilla:

AMD K10 architecture details:
  • Native quad-core design
  • 512KB L2 cache per core
  • Shared 2MB L3 cache
  • Enhanced AMD PowerNow Technology
  • HyperTransport 3.0
  • AMD Virtualization (AMD-V)
  • Performance per watt leader
  • AMD Agena FX details:
  • Fastest gaming processor
  • Up to eight cores with AMD Quad FX
  • Best performance with ATI CrossFire
  • Perfect fit with AMD RD790
  • We don't have the proof yet but if we can believe AMD the Agena FX processor will be able to take back the performance crown from Intel.

    Another part that will be presented to the press in Tunisia is the new RD790 chipset. This chip supports eight-cores with a Quad FX system, CrossFire and some other neat things.
