hmm.............for now it is. AMD always has the option to lower the price n still make a profit; same with Intel so this is a competition about value i would say.

i dont think the performance of the Phenoms is gonna stay this way, but we have to wait n see.

Well it costs roughly the same, outperforms it at stock, has way more overclocking headroom, and from the benchmarks so far scales better than the AMD as well. You decide.

Thumbs up Re: 2 Phenom reviews

WOW !! Core 2 beats Phenom clock for clock !!!

I thought that phenom was going to be 40% faster than Core 2

Don't forget that phenom 9700 is more expensive than Q6600

Not only Intel Quad core beats AMD quad core but Intel Qaud core has better performance per dollar

I'm very sad for people who bought AM2+ motherboards and people who waited for months for these crappy and horrible AMD processors

I told everyone here that AMD phenom will not be better than Intel Quad core, but no one believed me !!

Looks like ill just get SMG for Wii, 2 classic controllers, 2 Wii points cards, n S-Video cables as my present.

Intel has E2140, it cost around 10$ more but it beats 3600+ when both are overclocked to max

Anyway you are getting off-topic, the thread is about phenom not 3600+. Why you don't admit that core 2 quad > AMD phenom ?

How do you know it has more overclocking headroom?

We haven't seen people overclock them using liquid nitrogen etc yet.

Now you can enjoy your extra frame per second on average.

on initial release, and at RRP.

Not that all stores will sell at RRP.

his generalisation wasn't about Phemon. It was about AMD.

Why don't you step down from your high horse?

Good for you, you can enjoy your fraction of a frame per second extra.

No one uses liquid nitrogen for daily use. Extreme cooling solutions like that are for suicide runs only.

The q6600 has proven time and time again to do 3.6+ghz on simple air cooling, with little or no vcore increase....so far the Phenom has done 3.0ghz with an 8% vcore increase.
