    F*ck i7. AMD is the leader in price-performance ratio.

    Yes, but i7 is the leader in performance.

    Yeah, if you need a 1000$ processor for working as a professional in the movie/music industry, by all means go and get an i7. But for anyone who is interested in having a high powered home system(ie gaming,home movies, etc), the Phenom II line provide the most feasible results. Not to mention when overclocked, the Phenom II remains indistinguishable from an i7.

    I agree. Not that it takes too much imagination.

    But it does show promise for what is to come. We have already broken the petaflop barrier last year but that is a multi million dollar machine and not going to be available for public use for maybe 20 years if we are lucky. I can only imagine what life will be like when you have a PC that can utilize that kind of power!!!

    It really only lasted for 90 minutes because that was how much coolant they had. And keeping it at 3 kelvin for a 6.5ghz overclock is not entirely necessary. It was really just to show that the core can handle both extreme temperatures and clock speeds.
