Engadget - AMD fans have endured a long wait for this, while being reduced to spectators as Intel spews out an ever-increasing horde of Sandy Bridge variants and builds up the hype around its next-gen Ivy Bridge architecture.
the specs are crazy. 8 cores = tempting but i will wait for intels $1300 variation. its crazy that even though this is 8 cores the i7 is still keeping up with it.
Sadly this processor doesn't perform very well. i5 intels beat this thing out in speed tests.
yea seems the 8 cores are just bragging rights. shame its not a gpu a simple driver update would max that baby out in a couple of weeks.
