DailyTech - 1/8/2009 Daily Hardware Reviews -- AMD Phenom II & NVIDIA GeForce GTX 295 Edition

and GTX 295 reviews too. I already ordered my Phenom II 940 today.

EDIT:

just reading the Tweaktown review right now. Seems that Phenom II is almost fairly matched with the Core 2 Extreme. That good right? In AMD's turf considering lower price right?

I read the Toms Hardware one, but they dont even bother to clock the chips to the same speed or anything. The measure a 3.0Ghz phenom 2 to a 2.66Ghz i7 and q6600 @ 2.4Ghz. Hopefully there are some reviews that actually show the real performance difference clock for clock.

keep in mind that other benchmarkers will be benchmarking the Phenom II's later on with better BIOS n stuff. Should those ones be added to this list or no?
