The 2500K was already overkill. People just thought BD was more overkill.

Problem is the negatives of the worse case scenario, BD flopping, outweighed the positives of the best case scenario, it's faster than SB.

SB owners were never in fear of low performance but people who bought AM3+ motherboards, I still can't figure out why, did have something to fear.

WoW may be an old game, but Blizzard has done a few updates to the game engine - and it is still played by millions of people. I'm glad that they do toss that in as a benchmark because it's a game I play as well. The data may not be as pronounced as it is for the FPS games that dominate most benchmark reviews - but it is still valid.

I've owned both and can say, with a GTX 470, the Phenom II destroys the Core 2 Duo listed there. The Phenom II was the answer to the Core 2 series, the FX was supposed to be the answer to the first generation i7 series. At the dead minimum, I can guarantee you'll see someone buy the FX-4150. Quad core Dozer at 5Ghz is plenty for me. Even if it is only equal to the Phenom II clock for clock, at least it'll free up that bottleneck a bit in games due to the higher clock.

I upgraded to an i5 2500k from a Q6600 and had no intentions of waiting to see what Bulldozer would be like. I knew in my own mind that i was making the right choice then.

Intel have basically smashed AMD since Conroe and i can't see AMD doing anything about it in the near future
