AMD AMD has released its first dual-core Athlon 64 FX processor, the FX-60. The Reg puts it through its paces, and concludes: "AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 is the best consumer processor AMD has ever produced. With effectively a pair of FX-55s sat in the same socket, sharing an efficient memory controller, it's close enough to FX-57 in single-threaded apps that the multi-threaded advantage makes that slender gap moot. Targetted at the well-heeled enthusiast, the new dual-core processor should be a shoo-in for those with FX-57s already, and those with the required readies to drop on the latest and greatest."

Okay, I'm intrigued. What's makes a real gamer?

Somebody that play games? Having the latest processor, GPU or console isn't required. Those who brag about having the newest hardware while dissing the average RPG or sim player are usually posers rather than gamers.
