If this is true then it means it is still slower than 775 in games, well at least the 45nm.

im gonna wait for more reviews. But if they are all like this then im EXTREMELY dissapointed! It still cant compete with the current 45nm intel quads -.- I just really hope it does better in other reviews, i really hope!

i7 completely trumps it, in this review

Not as spectacular as previous reviews and benchmarks showed it to be.

Nice review

The Phenom II is similiar to Core2Quads in performance and intel released these quite a while ago. The Phenom's will surely give Intel competition in the core2 field but im not sure sure about i7. It all depends on how well it OCs (well at least for us).

It doesn't make any sense that the S775 intels have way better inter-core bandwidth and latency than the Phenom II. Something smells fishy.

Wow, even the 6600 beats the phenom 640 sometimes
ANd the c2Q9xxx are alot better, but they have a high price tagged on them tho

If this is true, I'll go with an intell Q6600, definatly

Amd will have a hard time in the future if this is it's true power.

you'd be better off just buying a C2D and OC that one, even the Q6600 seems to be on par or better with a 2.4 clock, take that thing up to 3.2 and it would probably beat the 920 in serveral more ways i guess.

Thats if this is true tho
