very nice , but still doesnt mean that it will be able to, NOT out bench mark, but out perform the new M-2 socket. how ever there is on thing that AMD can beat....Intel's Clocks....but will always beat their Performance. intel/3.0 vs amd2.0 = i think you know who is the victor.
***oh and considor your self part of that team... when you buy an AMD chip YOUR feed back on the chip is taken in consideration, or maybe you havent been AMD alliance for too long. so far every chip they came out with is withing the demand of the AMD buyers- no not the companies that use the AMD Proces in workstations, or the companies that pay big to intel but the Overclockers, the people that take their computers SERIOUSLY.
