It costs a whole $5 more. Woohoo. Do you really wanna gripe over pennies here?

Plus its 2.4GHz vs 3.0GHz.
3 cores vs 2, in applications that favor more cores. Hardly fair.

Also why the hell mention a quad Phenom and a Q6600, its reviewing the TRI core, they have tests for the Quads, plenty of them and the 9850 actually beats the Q6600 at stock which is what most care about.
If they wanna review at a certain price point (in this case, 190-200 range) they should be putting the q6600 against the 8750. I think we all know who the winner would be.

And for someone who griped over a $5 price difference earlier in his post, you managed to conveniently left out the fact that a 9850 is $40 more than a q6600. Whoops.

Q6600 isnt in the 190-200 range.

And if the two processors cost about the same (E84 and 8750) then it is completely fair. more games are becoming multi-threaded anyway. why even test single threaded apps where you will be getting >30fps anyway?

If a phenom at stock beats an e8400 at stock in games where the processing power is actually needed and used. I'd say it wins.

Though we are talking price range here. They wanted to compare a dual to a tri because AMD isnt exactly up to date with tech on par with intel yet.
65nm has nothing to do with performance..

Also, do the retail Q6600's cost $200 or is it just the OEM's? Not that big of a deal, but different warranties and obviously the cooler.

Retail Q6600 is $205; retail 8750 is $195 on newegg.

If you're this worked up about them not using a Q6600 then write to the author of the article and ask them why.

How does that look good for AMD? The tri-core lost in just about everything other than the only few selected games that took advantage of more than 2 cores. I only see fail on those charts and the fail gets even more pronounced once you start overclocking, or throw the similarly priced q6600 in the mix. Yes the Q6600 is in the $190-200 range. It's been 199 on Fry's for the longest time, and for a span of time was 179, and this is the Retail version.

I am by no means a fanboy either, I've had my fair share of AMD rigs, but I call it like I see it.

Hmmm good question? I just read a thread with you using popular internet slang so don't get all hypocritical on us b/c my post offends you.
