If you pat yourself on the back any harder for stating the obvious (aka parroting AMD's promo slides) you may sustain a spinal injury.
Either way I seem to remember a week or so ago that Deneb wasn't even going to match yorkfield.... hmmmm.
I don't trust these benches any more than I trust first hand accounts from XS members... although you seem to trust them very much because they support your argument. If there were benches that showed extraordinary Phenom II numbers where the reviewer admitted to having massive hardware troubles, you would have been crying foul.
I already have stated several times in several threads (along with many other level headed folk) that Deneb will fall in between yorkfield and i7, nearly matching i7 in some applications and barely keeping up with yorkfield in others. It's Ok though, if you want to take credit as the only one that has said that I'll let you have it.
