Oh geeze....

It is a quad core processor, but quad-core support is a function of the motherboard and software, (and it's guaranteed that if the motherboard supports the Core 2 Duo, it is designed for a multi-core apps). They're talking about games currently. Very few support multi-core processors, but they are slowly leaking onto the market. Supreme Commander is one of those titles that supports multi-core processors.

If you just can't for native and/or 45nm quads from Intel or AMD, wait for the Q6700 or QX6800 as they will be available soon.

No, not yet. They will be availabe in Q2 or 3, after price drop.

Probably not since its pretty much the most useless platform available right now.

Twice the heat, twice the power consumption, two heatsinks (with two fans), requires a new motherboard with a new socket, as well as 2 new CPUs (you can't just use an old CPU and add another to it for quad), and after all of that it isn't faster than anything from Intel.

Quad FX is probably going to be obsolete by next year.

I know they aren't 45nm. I was saying if he can't wait for the 45nm chips (Q1 2008), then get the Q6700 or QX6800. No point in getting the QX6700 now since the QX6800 is coming out very soon and will be at the same price.

The price premem for the X6800 simply not worth it. The QX6700 is worth it as the FSB for quads can't overclock that well so the unlocked multiplire is more improtent.

Thread could have ended right there since you make perfect sense and anything beyond this is just 'noise'.

The X6800 would be the better chip in theory, since it is
  • higher clockspeed, thus bad smp scaling apps such as game are better
  • unlocked multi (QX6700 has it too)
  • less heat, thus should overclock better

In practice, however:
  • Pricing the X6800 as it is is a total joke. Only insane people would buy it.
  • The unlocked multiplier and the less heat don't buy you anything since recently delivered dual-cores don't overclock much if any.
  • It is only 2.93 GHz, when e.g. Woodcrests are available with 3.0 GHz. Joke.
