Very nice chip. I use it for gaming and editing. I'm shure it will still last for a few years
I was looking up the 6900 series but this is roughly the highest cpu boss goes. Thats ok a 6800 is more in my price range
i have one at idle or just web surfing the core clock is around 800mhz
its power consumption is 91w which seems good for energy saving and environment friendly
u wot m8 u kant even mayk grafikx kards go bak to 2004 u foken skrub u r naver gona be as big as the grate raydeun
ye fkn wot lad
no u
pleese stop steeling owr kores
u ar bein raded by le amd polis u must delete 4 kores of all of ur pc
bad amd is betr they hav hier clok sspeeds so suk my big mt dik u lutle shitlel fnambois
The lower-powered 6700T is going to be an interesting chip. Looks very capable for a 35w chip.
