Intel doesn't do price wars... but slow scheduled price drops will start happening on a quarterly basis . It is the chipset costs that really benefit AMD in this round, since the performance between the Core2quads and Phenom II were nearly identical in every single benchmarks. The core2 are still better... but not buy a more then 2 or 3% in benchmarks, a little more in low resolution gaming. If the performance between the two stays about that close at every clock speed (AMD at 3.8ghz vs. Q9550 3.8ghz= roughly the same) then AMD may have a winner. Or at least my sale anyway.

Overall impression... a little disapointed. Really expected the Phenom to pull slighly ahead of the core2quads, at least in benchmarks (where hyper threading should have given it a bit of an advantage). Maybe AM3 will be the magic bullet, although that takes away a lot of the price edge for AMD IMO. All intersting... will wait for more details.

Very amused that this was posted by 003

But the P2 performs nearly just as good (in games) so for the value it's good if you're only gaming, as are the E8400-8600.
Hmmm, the i7 is better than the PII in gaming, I suppose that is why the i7 lost to the PII in Crysis at high res?

I guess if you like paying 30% more for nearly the exact same gaming performance at high res then GO i7!!! Yay!

Because Crysis is a great way to measure performance of a CPU.

Crysis is one of the few games that is supposed to be threaded for multiple cores so yes it is a good gaming benchmark. Any chance of seeing the CPUZ for this chip?

Sorry I haven't been following the new AMD processors lately but wait... 920 and 940 what the hell? Same exact model names as the i7 processors? Did I miss something here?

Well it's not exactly a bad way. It's better than any PC/CPU benchmark app that's for sure. What I like are 3dsmax, XviD video encoding, and 3dmark06 scores as these 3 things best represent what I use my computer for!

Marketing scheme. They're trying to make people think that the P2s are on the same level as the i7s yet somehow cheaper. Funny how people complain non-stop about nVidia's naming and not AMD's.

Because we all know that all future games will be less GPU dependent than Crysis.


At the moment Crysis is the best indicator of a systems potential future gaming performance, like it or not.

Either way, care to explain why your beloved beast the i7 lost to BOTH PII and C2Q?

That couldn't possibly be any worse than who has the most Ghz
