New AMD Athlon FX Targets High-End Gamers
This quote seems to be a bit of a contradiction when you consider there was no real market\software for 64bit home processing when they first announced the 64bit desktop CPU.
Unlike the rest of AMD's product lineup, the Athlon FX line won't be moving to a dual-core architecture for some time. The company contends (rightly) that most games are single-threaded, and aren't likely to benefit from dual-core processors. However, AMD said that once the games market has adopted multi-threading, it will offer a dual-core Athlon FX processor.
Maybe it means there's trouble with the Dual Core FX line???
I do not think so, They are just saying dual core is better workstation stuff right now as there are no big name multithread games.....
I think everyone is taking a lesson from Nvidia's 7800 release.... Boo on you if it's a paper release...
So take the easy (Just been graded and paved) high road... and wait till you have enough to share!

If I had the money or the idea that this is a good idea to buy over the better IMO dual cores, then I might buy one.
But since that's not the case, I'll just be happy with my 3200+ venice core @ 2.6Ghz
I would have loved to read that little article, but this **** Dell advertisment is keeping me from doing so. . Its also keeping me from seeing most of what i'm typing here, so i'm sorry for any spelling errors.
I'm sorry you had this problem.
