There were plenty of people spreading misinformation (just because they could)
But this time, the evidence surrounding Deneb is far more credible.
The evidence is that we are seeing 65nm Agena consistently reach 3.5GHZ with SB750's, we already know that Agena is very close to C2Q in IPC, and we know that Deneb has an IPC advantage over Agena, and we know (yes, know) that Phenom is a very complex die to be using on the 65nm process, and we know that Intel doubted that a monolithic quad could be done properly on 65nm.
