  1. Without any challenge to present at the Core i7 performance level, AMD is trying to pressure Intel in the value segment before their Core i5 CPUs make it to market.

    yeah, maybe AMD cant fully compete with i7 ... but you sure get a lot of preformance for the small amount of money you pay for an AMD compared to intel.

    Keep up the good job AMD

    I was going to get one of these new Phenom's... but for long time investment I decided to go with an i7. Good performance for money though. AMD is doing pretty well lately. =]

    Nice review - thanks! Be interesting to see how Intel handles their pricing in the near future.
  7. I agree great Job AMD on the 965BE keeping the pressure on Intel. Competition is good for all of us. I do think that the Q9550 must drop off of that $220 price point. I think $180 is a more reasonable price.
  8. why was 965 compared to i7 940 which is/was much more expensive ?

    this review was not a price/performance review, at this point its about if AMD can put out a product that can compete with the I7 line...or the I5 for that matter.

    You are about three years too late on this one. Check Newegg for prices.

    And, no the Phenom II does not have on-die graphics.
