AMD Fanless Prototype

A new natural substance that dissipates heat much better than ceramics is being tested and a Palomino prototype is reported to be running in AMD's Fab25 in Austin at 1.5GHz with a simple passive heatsink.

Details of temperatures have yet to leak, but the test chip is said to use aluminium, rather than copper interconnects.

A Fab 25 insider said Palomino was "looking good".

Anonymous: It appears you have a superiority complex developing there.. why is that? because of your small "d**k"? I enjoy being intelligent, you obviously don't. Go back to looking at your pr0n.Now, as I was saying, the reason I like AMD (and am especially happy for them now) is because of their policies. I'm not sure if Intel still does this.. but: When AMD's chips don't test out to be what they were designed to be (like a 300MHz chip turns out to be 200MHz) they throw it out. Intel, in that situation would mark it down 33MHz and ship em' out. That's how they initially got ahead, and that's also why I don't like their chips. Think your Pentium is 450MHz? Think again.

Sinic you are a very sad person who obviously has no life. If you do not like this sort of thing sell your computer and try and geta girlfriend as you obviously have the mental age and I.Q. of a retarded pigeon.AMD strikes again and if the license out the technology think of the graphics cards that could be made. It also means theoretically if you use a fan as well then these chips are seriously overclockable.

I love amd, personally, i think that the price and quality that you get blows away intel, i dont know what intel is doing, but they seem to be making very basic bluders that have let amd take the stage. the new ram . . . .sgram or ramdac or some sh*t like that is supported by amd, yet intel has yet to come out with anything along these lines.you guys swearing at each other, need to seriously get some alcohol in you and duke it out or something, cus everybody's getting a good laugh outta you boyz.

AMD has outpace and out performed intel in all gaming aspects. Even the new p4 can not keep up with the AMD in games. The floating point that AMD uses is Extremely effecient when it comes to games. Put an AMD on an ASUS a7v series motherboard and get ready to overclock. I ve got 2 internal fans cooling my system and overclocked a 1GIG to 1.2.

I think this whole AMD/Intel thing is going to end up like NVidia/3DFX did with AMD being NVidia. Good on AMD better prices, better performance what more could you ask for.....Ulfar and anonymous should be poof buddies.Sorry but it had to be said. Anonymous started it by being a wanker and sinic just "responded...

ITs good to see that AMD is still 1 step a head of intel, like always hehe.if any 1 want a 100% true jpg ofintel inside idiot out sideemail me!and rember if u cant get a life get halflifelong life the K63 prototype yeah!! (thats my chip)

AMD are advancing and bringing innovative new technologies, the fact that they also manufacture other products (ie. flash memory) is also something to fall back to if they lose the battle. I am wondering if when they get their technology out will intel's advertising win? or shall intel win the war simply by being able to outproduce their rivals AMD that have a weakness of only 2 current CPU FAB facilities. Timing and shipment is critical, AMD mocked intel with the Athlon and now the "busy bee's in bunny suits" are determined to climb back on top of all competition by pushing a new multimedia P4. In my opinion the AMD Palomino shipments may come in too late. What unforseen risks are awaiting AMD in the future? I can't tell but either way i will still be running my Athlon (which cost me half the price of a PIII!) and i think it Rox the benchmarks enough for me =)

The reason that Intel has not been fully thrown out of favor is because of the impact it has on the stock market. Analysts say that these kind of wars may be good for consumers but on the long run can hurt individual businesses.I love AMD anyway! AMD for LIFE!

AMD Fuqin sux...i have an AMD 1.2 thunder bird and a pentium 4 1.5 ghz....and the thunderbird iz slooooooooo az hell...it takes like an hour to load..and they have like the same config except for the chip speed...intel for life biotch

AMD Fanless Prototype

Fuq AMD!!! What posses complete morons such as yourself to even bother with such ridiculous statements? And with a mentality like yours there is no way you could own those two chips, unless your daddy is rich....It's been stated that even the P3 outdoes the P4 in some instances so as if the Athlon's still not gonna thump hard!!!

AMD Fanless Prototype

Fuq AMD: You can't be anymore wrong. First of all the Tbird 1.2ghz is just about even in performance and sometime is faster than the P4 1.5ghz.Second, the chips have TOTALLY different configurations. The P4 is such crappy engineering. Intel increased the processing pipeline to get more mhz out of it, in turn also making it so it can process LESS at the same time. AMD on the other hand would never stand for such a crippling act and instead used the pure silicon to get more out of the chips.Intel is just on a roll wit the bad decisions.

Ei gude! Isch hab auch einen AMD! Der AMD geht voll ab, aber die Hauptplatinen die für den rauskommen sind oft zu langsam! Naja, aber was will man machen? Intel kann nix mehr, während AMD immer wieder drauflegt! ABer alle AMDs vor K7 Kann man wegschmeißen! Egal Fakk ju ohl

AMD Fanless Prototype

to Fuq AMD --->You're just a NEWBIE or an IDIOT !!!if you know something about PC's you're Tbird would not be slow,and it starts up VERY fast ... if you wanna say someting , then first read/learn a bit with your childish mind ... benchmarks lie ?? over million people lie ?? games FPS lie ??? the Tbird scores WAY better then ANY P3 or P4 ... so ... SHUT THE f**k UP before you speak ...and oh yes ... you stay with Intel,we are goiing 4 AMD :) you moron :)Slik.(the world is full of FOOLS,this dude was a prime example 4 it ...)

I've had AMD, I've had INTEL, AMD ALL THE WAY.My fascination with AMD started with my first real game. Good old X-wing. My AMD 386/40 out performed my friends Intel 486 dx2/66 everytime. Memory was the same, same with sound. I blew his ass away! Doom? Used his corpse to wipe the floors... And its not that I was a better gamer.

AMD Fanless Prototype

AMD is the best and will always be the best. They whip intel's arse with every new chip and motherboard the bring out. AMD has no delays and no faults, they run hell better than intel anyday. AMD AMD AMD !!!!!!!!!

AMD Fanless Prototype

I think intel don't care about being the leader of best processors cause they have so much more then AMD so why would they care.The whole is about what company wants more money.I like both processors for reasons.Intel-Good processor for programs.AMD-Good for gaming.DONE

AMD Fanless Prototype

I'm personally an intel fan since i first got my pc, but times have changed, and AMD is definately leading the way, they OC better than Intel. They get better results than intel same speeds. And last of all, for all those who are like me who like to save some serious cash, AMD harsh rocks Intel in the price wars. Intel the last couple of months have only been making dumb descisns. WTF is with the RDram when you have kick ass SDRAM DDR? hell alot cheaper too and its harsh a major burn for intel to not be able to use SDRAM DDR

AMD Fanless Prototype

I don't think Intel will not care about their price. Both AMD and Intel 's CPU are good, yet for different market. AMD for Kids and gamers, Intel for me and whatever I care the most, speed. Just want to play some 3D games? Don't have $$? Get the AMD! If you know what is really your PC is there for, and know what to do with it, you really need Intel. No joke, No shit, just some basic that every one knows.

AMD Fanless Prototype

Man I can't believe the crap posted here... even tomshardware... THE Most RESPECTED hardware site anywhere on the net wrote that AMD is now just literally kicking Intel's @$$. Only PC first comers will be fooled to buy the Intel Brand... I'm a happy Duron 700MHz owner... nuff said !

AMD Fanless Prototype

I must admit, INTEL is is losing the race, in the desperate attempt to beat AMD you all remember the p3 1.33 HAHa yes that was so unstable it wasn't even funny, I have a 1.2 gig from AMD, and I'm glad it's so much easier to overclock an athalon than a pent, but I must admit, the p4 is tite, 1.5 gigs, 400MHZ SYS BUS!!!! it's pretty tite, but once AMD releases the 1.5 gig of their own, they will be pymping
