My motherboard went to the graveyard in the sky Wednesday, and so ordered another early evening, should be here in a couple of hours time. As a side note to the saga, I was on Anandtech and saw the FX9000 series announcement.
Went back there today and they have updated basic details, the key one being TDP is a Massive 220W ..... kind of explains why its going to system integrators only on first deployment (!)
Such a massive TDP maybe fine for some .... but ..... (!) ...
Anyway, there it is, a heads up for anyone waiting for the beast's announcement - might want to put a break on expectations until the dust settles on this one :)
