[LegitReviews] Phenom II Sneak Peak - Page 4

post #31 of 122
AMD is a lot more confident about these new chips. Looks like the 45nm process was desperately needed.

If you look at this article. 5 chips were given, it took 30 minutes for both teams to OC one of those five to just under 4GHz on air. It's quite impressive and realistic if you ask me.



If you look at the cpuz validations, there are Phenom 2's popping up at around 4GHz+. Take a look here.



Some people will always be skeptical, but cmon, a lot of proof has been seen for the Phenom 2's.
If those cpuz validations prove true then I will prob go Phenom 2 this time around. I want a 3gig stock quad without having to break the bank to get one. I do not see the Q9650 dropping anytime soon, which is what I was waiting for to upgrade to quad core.

Good link for price points.

Sounds extremely promising, but I still think Core i7 will ultimately shine over Phenom II, due to it's incorporation of triple-channel memory, 8 processing threads, and large(er) cache size. Just not enough benchmarks out right now to really conclude anything though. We'll see . Price-wise though, yeah, I think Phenom II will no doubt topple Nehalem in sells. Just can't go wrong with AMD's pricing scheme, compared to Intel's.

And yeah, I highly doubt they're cherrypicked. Well, they are, lol the scores are best of five chips, but that's just the individual overclockers cherrypicking from the pile AMD provided. That pile was production-grade I'm sure.


Also, lol @ the 3Dm06 score. 35,000 marks with a single video card.
35k is not impressive cause it was for 3dmark05... I can get that at 4.6 and 1 gtx 280.

btw it is good news thought cause intel is gonna be forced to step up to something new faster good news for me cause I want some new toys
