I should contemplate buying one of these and putting it through my uses (where two cores is generally enough and IPC means a lot more) and laugh at my Core 2 Duo outdoing it while using like 1/4th the power draw.
Don't get me wrong though, I'm disappointed in the matter, and not in a disgusted way, but a concerned way (no, not for sake of AMD going out of business, but more for things regarding the enthusiast market; stagnation could mean price gouging from Intel, and speaking of which, here comes LGA 2011 as we speak!).
