Haha, for real. I think the worst is when someone calls their computer "my compy."

This CPU is looking more and more like its going to be mine, especially if it hits the right price range. Great to hear my cooler might stand up with a heavy OC, if this is true. It's a battle between the easily 4GHz OC quad core for me, I want 4GHz, tired of 3.0!

The numbers look very in line with what I have been expecting. It would have been even better if it had Core 2 and Core i7 results in there as well.

EDIT:
And my prediction that a certain large group of people on OCN are not going to post in this thread and it will just die. For *ahem* unspoken reasons.

I'm rather impressed, and expected this.
I think this cpu might even be as good as an i7 920/970. Better will probably be not the case.

Maybe now these intell fanboy will shut the hell up about this cpu being worthless. but i doubt it, since i7 will still be the leader and fanboys think that performance is the only thing that matters and not PRICE/performance...

Now all i have to do i wait for it to release close arround my country so that i get to see a real price. If it suits my budget: hello 940 BE...

The only thing notable about these new CPU's is the name, Phenom is a cool name.

But none of these new processers do anything for gaming. The GPU is what powers the game, the CPU does other stuff. Once CPU is effecient enough. Theres no difference in gaming with CPU clocked @ 2.4 or 3.0 ,,,the GPU does the work, which is why when 3dmark runs the CPU test,, you get 1fps or 2fps lol,,,

Let's not get carried away. Take a look at how a 9950 compares to current Core 2 and Core i7 CPUs here.

That being said, the Phenom II is going to be a very solid choice if you are on a budget, and its overclocking ability is greatly increased, which is fantastic as well.

Here's the rest of the article and a teaser:

This has been firstly reported by Fudzilla here.
If this is accurate, they had the processor running at 4.2Ghz on air but they also stated they were having alot of BIOS problems because technically, none of the bios's support the processor as of yet. Very very very very nice though. I will finally have myself a 4.0Ghz Quad Core

Yeah i forgot to mention, when it's oc'd.
Then again, an oc'd i7 will obviously ourperform the phenom 2 chips.

then please explain the difference between the fps in the games shown? or for any other benchmark that involves overclocking. the graphics card renders graphics. graphics are, in a most barebone sense, a bunch of pictures. however, with the exception of a few games the use physx, the cpu is the one the gauges what happens physics wise. i do agree that the videocard is more important then the graphics cards in most games, but you cant just forget about it. and if someone is on the border between playable and unplayable fps, a simple overclock will fix that issue.
