Golden sample and not on all 8 cores. Individual threads will actually perform worse than on Phenom II as each core is 80% of the performance of a Phenom II core.

It's just not a legitimate reseller. They're some shady 3rd party site that resells games for a profit. Many of the sites are scams. Others sell used keys. It's not worth the hassle usually. You might as well of said that you would take his money now and buy the game at release in order to prove your point that you think a non-limited edition version of BF3 can be bought right now(which isn't true).

Proof

Only time will tell though.
Considering this is the first "new" architecture since relatively speaking K7 days and is similarly priced against the 2600k, all while using a better approach to HT, i don't see it getting blown away by SB. I'll put it this way if it's 10-15% slower clock for clock it should still be a win because multithreaded performance is what the architecture is designed for and AMD's overall design should be much more efficient. I'm not saying it will beat SB, but touch it? Yeah i think it will touch it, it would be a utter failure if it didn't.

Well, I've never done an RMA with ASUS, but what's it gonna hurt? I'd say give em a call and see if they'll help you out!

This.

What most intel fanboys don't understand, is that intel need a competitor, otherwise we won't see any advancement.

If BD does come close to touching SB, then we very well might see a 6c IB chip.

And that will be a win indeed!

To stay on topic... BF3 BETA NAO!

Um there were tons of those type of retailers here in the states... that sold used games for PC-consoles. Sometimes they get games from countries that don't sell as much, they get the games in bulk, turn around and sell them for a lower price at a profit. Where else would the games go if they didn't get them? who knows they might wast away somewhere.

I guess you've never used eBay?? or Craigslist? you can get tons of used stuff from either of those sites, does it make it wrong?

the bet was, You can't buy the pre-order version of BF3 non limited addition. That site offers it, at a low price and they deliver it on the release day. It's basically like GameStop, you think they'll get the games delivered to them on the 25th? there would be a lot of ticked off people. They get the games days earlier so they can be ready for release. This "Shady" site probably does the same thing.

Um, EA origin is doing the same thing... They take your money now, and give you your game at release.

Oh yeah, My key was emailed to me in the form of a picture from the CD case.

I haven't seen that footage. It doesn't look official which makes me think it violates the NDA, which suggests you should take it down before a mod does it for you with unwanted side effects.

On another note, I hope they fixed the spotting, it looks absolutely horrible.

And you can't pre-order a non-limited edition of BF3 from any authorized distributor. The discussion is not whether you can buy a used copy of a game from ebay, criagslist or your neighbor. The discussion is about whether you can pre-order a non-limited edition of BF3 or not. Why are you trying to change the subject in support of your misinformed opinion? That's called straw-man tactics.

Saying that I'll take your $50 now and buy the game later for you at launch isn't the same thing as pre-ordering... Anybody can do that. I'll do it for you if you want. Whether you or some random site on the internet does this, they most definitely are not pre-ordering the game for you, which is the key word here.

They did fix the spotting. If you spot someone they show up to your team, but if they break line of site with you, then the marker gets taken off of them.
