Lol. They have no benchmark to backup. "True Quad Core" is just their marketing trick to fool dumb ass ...:thumbdwn:

"true quad core performance" what a bunch of bull****. oh yes sir AMD i want your true quad core performance, its always better to be slower.

This time, AMD really kicks its own ass really hard. It took the risk/gamble to have "true quad core". The problem is that their "true quad core" is actually slower than Intel's "fake" quad core but costs much higher to produce since 4 cores must be there and tons of yield/defects issues which they need to worry about. Their management is very risk taking. They won big on last time when they gambled with Athlon 64. They seem to lose big this time .....

come on, at least with some bad yield they were talented enought to re-invent the triple core aka defective quads.

It's really all they have going right now I think.

Phenom is slower, runs hotter, uses more power and has less features than the competition.

You can't blame them for trying to reel in idiots that don't know any better. That's business.

Lmao true quad core performance

No thanks, I will take my fake quad core Q6600 and put a beat down on that true quad core all day long.

me neither. when intel was better i had intel, when amd released x2 that were better then p4, i had x2. when c2d destroyed x2, i bought c2d

I just get whatever's good performance and up-to-date within my price range.


I noticed that tigerdirect says that the Phenom is for socket AM2. Don't they mean AM2+, or is it also backwards compatable with a BIOS update?
