  2. I am not sure why sites continue to reference the donaminhaber leaked benchmarks. There is some question as to whether they are fake or not. In any case, I wish we had some official benchmarks to look at at this point, but as usual with (at least) AMD releases, we won't see anything official until the processor is released and the review sites are given the green light to publish their results.
