Well I think here will be no more Athlon FX as dual core Athlon 64 X2 are replace it at the high end, Athlon 64 X2's single tasking can match that of Athlon FX and twice faster in multi-tasking while cost are less than Athlon FX.

Only the most expensive X2 (4800+?) can match or slightly exceed an FX53 (2.4GHz) in single tasking performance. And that chip costs $1000 last I saw as far as pricing goes which is more than the FX53 by quite a margin.

An FX55, @ 2.6GHz, might actually be faster than the fastest X2 in single tasking performance due to the extra clock speed, and still cost less to boot.

Yea IIRC, AMD will still market their line of FX processors to gaming enthusiasts.

Nope, the FX line will still be the benchmark flagship for AMD. Dual cores dont win benchmarks... or smp systems would be winning the 'usual' benchmarks for years now lol.

:lol: Well according to the AMD roadmap, Athlon 64 X2 is in the same line as Athlon FX at the high end. Also I noticed Athlon FX line pointed to San Diego core, I guess things are changed as AMD has no new plan for Athlon FX, they moved Athlon FX into San Diego core with 1Mb L2 cache, the high end Athlon 64 4000+ is the last chip and the next chip will replace it will be Orleans core due next year. If you want new Athlon FX, maybe you have to go dual core Athlon 64 X2 route. :)

No, the FX moved to san diego because the next FX will be a san diego. The difference between it and the Athlon 64 based san diego's will be clock speed (should be 400MHz higher now) and the fact that upward multipliers are unlocked. Your conclusion is like saying there are no athlon 64's anymore because the 4000+ used the same core as the Athlon 64 FX. They just share the same core, that is all. I guess it could be confusing because of how the seperated them before in the roadmap, but I think they are simply pointint out that San diego will be used for two different class of CPU's.
