Only with speedhacks which can cause bugs in games, etc. I'd prefer not to use speedhacks so until AMD improves their per core performance, it's Intel for me. Besides, even now PCSX2 is emulating the Emotion Engine at reduced speed. I recall reading one of the devs mention PCSX2 is currently emulating the EE at just 240 MHz and not the full 300 MHz. And again, I've got a crappy mobo. MSI 890GXM-G65+Phenom II X6+overclocking do not mix.

Bad Company 2, Far Cry 2, GTA4, Metro 2003..... and many more games these days can run 4+ threads and in that case a Phenom 2 would eat the i3
The 4GHz Phenom II = 3.5GHz Core i3 comment was strictly in reference to PCSX2. I couldn't care less about the results in the games you mentioned since I don't play them. I'm not saying Phenom II's are bad. Just that for my use, Intel is better.

Can't wait until software starts to take advantage of SB's AVX extension. Can you say double the gigaflops in rendering... I can, I just did.


If you are building a new rig, then there is no reason to look over SB unless you get a good deal on the parts or unless you are using three high-end graphics cards. In that case even, there are the P67 boards with the NF200 chip with more PCI-e lanes for all your nonsensical shader needs!
