Can't say I'm sure either, Intel already had their go with strained silicon which was intended to reach 5GHz and that failed miserably, so I dunno if AMD can get it to pay off or not.

They do seem to be keeping temperatures low (except the Toledo) which is always a good sign and it also seems to overclock pretty far just on stock voltage (I saw the stuff they had at xtremesystems too ).

Once they get all these new cores out together where I can compare 'em then I'll see which once can overclock the best. Who knows, maybe I'll grab a 754 board if the mobile is the best of the lot (25 watt processors sound awesome ).

Intel C2D E6320 / AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB
OCZ GameXStreme 850w / OCZ StealthXStream 600w

Yeah I've seen a lot of the mobiles hitting 2.7 and 2.8GHz on air, but hell on that same note I've seen the winchester cores do the same thing, so realistically it's not even worth it to go mobile really. Man I hope SOOOO much that with the dual cored mobiles that it migrates to socket 939, I'll be sticking with AMD mobiles as long as I can haha, but if it's on socket 754 I'm not gonna do it.

Also I think that Venice currently just has a 'cold bug' where it doesn't like those ridiculous temps, whether it be 20C or -40C it seems to not want to go beyond 2.8GHz which I believe is because of that dual liner
