try to get to 4.45 and not a single bsod super stable at those settings vcore is high but we also dont know what kind of vcore amd used to get to those speeds. (I know I can run 4.45 at 1.4 I just messed up and loaded a preset that I didnt mean to load (4.6 setttings) (I can run 4.4 on air I have ran 4.5+ before on air)
Not saying these arent impressive cause they are very much so for an amd chip. Hopefully this amd chip does good so intel can speed it up with 32nm
btw this is what you get at 4.44 with i7
LOL @ 1.536v.
I really do feel bad for you guys that spent 1000 dollars on a 965 and are now in this phenom II thread desperately trying to defend your purchase. Especially you "45nm". It seems to me like you are trying to justify i7 over p2 in this thread, but secretly you are trying to justify it to yourself because you just got reamed for 1000 bucks. Did you really need a 965 over a 920, or are you just trying to let your nuts hang a little bit? It's cool man I'm not going to hate.
I am very happy that AMD got their **** together. I anticipated this CPU and that is why I bought my sig system instead of a Q6600 or a Q9450. The upgrade path is awesome, and many people out there will take the same upgrade path that I'm on with AM2+ mobos. Plus the price difference will put AMD back in the game and finally get Intels ridiculous prices down. Better products, better prices - thats what its all about.
We can quibble on semantics, dual vs triple channel memory, cf and sli support vs cf only, but at the end of the day, the P2 and i7 are looking pretty damn close so far in everything except price. And by the way, 99.99999 percent of people with computers don't care about having CF and Sli support simultaneously. IMO its useless.
