AMD FASN8 platform = dead

Posted on Thursday, September 13 2007 @ 02:00:59 CEST by

Months ago we heard about a FASN8 platform from AMD but according to the Inq the project has been canned:
The platform was due to see two Phenom processors (for eight-core action) combined with RD790 and four Radeon HD 2900s in a funky combo before the year was out - an ambitious task if ever there was one.

But it seems that the folks at DAAMIT may have overstretched themselves on this one - making QuadFire work must be hard enough, but doing it on a dual-processor-socket motherboard must be even harder, especially on an upcoming, untested chipset.

There must also be some doubt about who on earth would a) require that much power and b) have the $10k required to drop on such an endeavour, particularly given the relatively poor performance of the Radeon 2900 XT so far and the lack of any foreseeable updates to that architecture.
