AMD launches 4 core system

AMD launched a high end system for gamers with 4 CPU cores (2 linked dual core chips).

More and more games are being written to support multiple threads which can run on multiple cores.

AMD also launched their high-end dual core CPU, the AMD Athlon 64 FX-62 which has 2 cores running a 2.8GHz. However high-end gaming costs as the chip alone will set someone back $1,031 (in 1,000 quantities, so street pricing will be significantly higher).

The fight between Intel and AMD continues and AMD are not backing down.
