AMD Launches Vista-Compatible Quad FX Platform

Just two weeks after the debut of Intel's quad-core chips, AMD on Thursday announced its Quad FX Platform with Dual Socket Direct Connect architecture. AMD is touting the Quad FX as the first dual-socket, multi-core desktop PC platform designed to work with Windows Vista Ultimate. Intel has been accused of merely slapping together two of its Duo Core processors in order to claim that first-to-market status. Quad FX is recognized as a true quad core and is powered by pairs of the AMD Athlon 64 FX-70 series dual-core processors.
