I get trying to find the silver lining in things, but come on. It's not really a cheaper upgrade, especially when you consider the price/performance ratio. And yes, nothing utilizes it yet, but nothing will. By the time stuff that utilizes this thing become mainstream there will a new generation of chips on the market.
This is a disaster for AMD. I haven't bought an AMD chip since my K7, and while I didn't believe it would be as amazing as everyone was saying it would be, I was at least hoping it would be a decent enough alternative to keep Intel in line.
