I agree, the credibility of the benchmark is questionable at best. But I'm still fairly sure that AMD will NOT beat Intel on:

-Pricing
-Performance
-Enthusiast Market (overclocking)

Methinks they are going to pull another R600 dealiyo

i agree. with the way things are looking, regardless to the mobo support they should be running better then the intels. but i suppose if they are like nagasama said price: perf maybe this is where they want to be and charge a really good price for their cpu's making a 8800gt,8800gtx situation

I couldn't load the first site before (seems to not work in firefox) but after looking at it (I had to use IE), I noticed the RAM speeds:
http://www.expreview.com/img/news/07...ysis_k10_s.jpg

5-5-7-18 timings at 2T, and 375MHZ is not exactly good to use with a Phenom

with K8's, you get about 5-10&#37; better performance just by going from 2T to 1T.
