Source: Legit Reviews ___________ The AMD QuadFX platform hasn't made too much noise since it was launched a couple months ago, but the reasons are obvious to all. It's expensive to build, consumes energy like a muscle car and there is only one motherboard to pick from for those thinking of building a QuadFX system. When the QuadFX processors came out on November 29, 2006 they were expensive and not a great value for the level of performance they produced. Now over a month later and after rumors of slow sales on QuadFX systems, one would think that prices would go down on the parts, but they have actually gone up! Looking at an online retailer like Newegg it's obvious that each pair of QuadFX processors has gone up ~$100 across the board.
