Can't you just OC a FX55? It's like 300 dollars cheaper, and the overclocking potential is the same (3.1GhZ) with stability.

not really....if the cpu is using the same manufacturing process, the overhead space for ocing get smaller as they raise the speeds. That is what happened to Intel with their pentium threes and the development of the Net Burst Architecture. And when the cpu uses up all the head room, its back to the drawing board again for a new core.

Yeah, like the guy before me said, the same core will have about the same limitations, so they need to produce a new core for the FX57 before you can begin to overclock it higher.

They wont make a new core for the FX-57, they will use the same core until they cant get the San Diego any higher. That would probably be around FX-59, maybe FX-61. You can already see the maximum speeds in the San Diego core. They are almost the same as Venice. Then they will design a new core while they are selling the FX-59, and FX-61 if it ever goes up that high.

the fx-57 uses a 90nm mfr process while the fx-55 uses a 130nm.

No, the Sand Diego core is also 90nm.

Truth is, that in some applications the FX 57 is faster than the X2s...
And now the FX 55 an Pentiums D are budget compared to those...
