AMD's NEW 12 CORE GOLIATH WILL HIT THE SHELVES TOMORROW !

Well, it's not a CPU anymore, technically it's called an APU now. (Accelerated Processing Unit), and I for one, am excited about this release. I have always been a fan of AMD gear as I've always believed you get more bang for your buck, especially in gaming applications.

An APU combines a CPU with a performance Graphics chip, so in theory you don't have to run expensive graphics cards in low-mid end systems, although you'd still need to invest in a good card if you intend to use your machine for high end  gaming. From all reports so far however, the graphics chipset on these APU's are pretty good, being able to handle all but the most intense graphic applications.

RRP is around $199.00 which is a similar price to an i5 intel, but the AMD should outperform the intel hands down. As for those glorious 12 cores? 4 are CPU and 8 are GPU. I for one, can't wait to get my hands on one of these, fire up the old Call Of Duty and see how it performs. Stay tuned...
