AMD's FX57 to be the overclocking processor?

Posted on Friday, June 24 2005 @ 20:29:33 CEST by

AMD to promote FX57 overclocking?
AMD held a private Athlon 64 FX57 presentation in London. The company said FX57 will be launched soon - and luckily it will directly be available in quantity.

The Inq heard that the FX57 would be pimped as an overclocking processor. AMD has said at the presentation that it will promote the FX processor as an overclocking processor. The company promises that every FX57 processor will be overclockable out of the box.
AMD said it would actively promote the FX processor as an overclocking processor. We asked whether all processors will be guaranteed Overclockable out of the box and were greeted with a big smile.
The company will provide users with a list of overclocking possibilities, air and non-air. But AMD will not mention the word 'overclockable', instead they will use the word 'unlocked'.

So AMD says that every FX57 processor will be overclockable out of the box - this really makes me wonder why don't they just launch the processor at a higher clock speed? Probably because overclocking can be used to create a new marketing hype. Oh and by the way overclocking is still at your risk, it will void your warranty.

The FX57 will be aimed at gamers and overclockers and will ship for $1040. Benchmarks from AMD show that the FX57 performs about 7% better than the FX55.

The company further said that the FX processors will start using DDR2 memory in the future, probably in 2006. Dual-core FX processors are also planned for next year.
