AMD introduces new high-end computer processors.
Three new high-end computer processors have been introduced by Advanced Micro Devices Inc (AMD) (NYSE:AMD), a chip manufacturer.
The Athlon 64 FX-70 series chips will be sold in pairs, with the price ranging from USD599 to USD999, depending on performance.
Machines using more than one processor are usually servers or workstations, rather than desktop PCs for consumers. However AMD expects computers using the new processors to appeal to consumers wanting to use a number of intensive applications, such as downloading movies, gaming and burning DVDs.
AMD is also planning to introduce a quad-core chip in 2007, and has said its partners are ensuring that when quad-core chips are available consumers will be able to swap over to the new processors, without other hardware changes, to upgrade their machines.
