    I really hope AMD releases a good CPU this time.

    Intel is getting too arrogant with the release of i7.

    Clockspeed is clockspeed. What I really want to see are some benchies.

    Same here.

    Can't wait to see AM2+ and AM3 released :thumb:

    i want performance over clockspeed. hope amd can be back on track..pawn intel they will...

    That's good for AMD, now we just have to wait for prices :)

    Ahhh.. About time for them to come up with a proper response to the Intel processors. :mrgreen:

    But I agree. No matter how high they can go with it with air cooling or ridiculous liquid nitrogen setups, what matters most is their REAL WORLD performance.

    A performance edge of AMD on Intel would be nice, but I'm just hoping they improve power efficiency as well!

    haha. remember they used to demo 3GHz Phenom?

    LOL yeah.

    In the end most of the retail chips are only able to overclock to 2.6GHz range at best and we don't even know whether or not it's Prime95 stable :lol:

    AMD overclocks 45nm Phenoms to 4GHz and beyond - The Tech Report

    Fail. Forget about getting it Prime95 stable at 4GHz by using air/water cooling :lol: 3.0GHz range should be more realistic for Phenom II.

    I really hate demos using liquid nitrogen. They are nothing but gimmicks to fool the n00bs. Even Intel did one for the Core i7 launch. I don't know what they are trying to prove... :doh:

    Any CPU with liquid nitrogen can overclock to stupendous heights, but it doesn't mean they can overclock well with air cooling. Really pointless demos. :hand:
