Not to sound like a fan boy here but Deneb is also the name of a Star. One of the bigger ones in fact.

yes i know Deneb is not just the name for a cpu, but i assure you in this case he named his account after this cpu.

Not impressed. 1.56V to get to 4GHz, on 45nm? I'll pass.

It doesn't seem to be 45C on air....
But here you go 3.9GHZ on air @ 1.5v

PS. Keep in mind that intel use High-K metal gate method, and AMD uses Silicon-on-Isolator. And when CPU of AMD is under stress, the voltage is getting higher, and the Intel's one is dropping down. Different technologies. It seems that AMD's one is more tolerant to higher voltages.

Maybe someone already explained this already but I'm still not sure why AMD is using such a higher vcore than Intel...

YouTube - AMD Phenom II, 3.9GHz Air-Cooled, 6.3GHz Liquid, Chicago
Indeed, the 4GHZ region is possible with air cooling...but I was just amazed that it can be done with a stock cooler and a temp of 45c...but of course that is probably just a dream....heh

Come to think of it I haven't really researched SOI vs High K metal.

Yep, the 4GHz is on water:

anyway,here is the overclocked benchies

cpu overclocked to 4ghz
gpu still at stock clock

changed cooling from air to water
also mem to ballistic pc8000

boot at 19.5x200, set to 20x using AMD Overdrive in windows
due to AMD Overdrive failed to install in Windows 7 Ultimate, i switch to Vista Home Premium as i need it to get 4GHz, but PCMark 05 in Windows 7 Ultimate has higher score
15278 vs 14691
Win 7 vs Win Vista
3.9GHz vs 4GHz

As you can see, in 3DMark06, the CPU score for the 4GHz Phenom II is 5846. I just did a run with my i7 920 at 3.8GHz, on the stock cooler, and scored 6491 for the CPU:

Hmm...

I'd take a Wolfdale over it to get 4.2+ghz at 1.36V over 4ghz at 1.57V :|

Unless you don't care about votage/heat...

And AMDs are made completely different from Intel chips. Not all fabrication processes are alike. AMDs have always started with a higher voltage... unless you talk of Prescott. Regradless, I am more interested to see what the arquitechture tweaks the k10.5 brings compared to the K10 and what this means compared to the Conroe and the Peyrins.
Just my two cents.
Not to mention I've seen cpu-z reading inaccurate voltages on more than one occasion. Voltages aside, reaching a stable 1 ghz overclock on a brand new manufacturing process on an amd processor? This is good stuff.
