Infact, this chip isn't even availible yet, you can only preorder it which is why it's less popular than the FX-55. As mentioned it has a 2.4GHz 512KB cache in each core. It's basically the real enviroment which Intel Hyperthreading simulates.

As mentioned, games are not multithreaded and will still thrive more on powerful single threaded processors such as the FX-55. Encoding or image editing however, the X2 excels in.

I laugh at how tigerdirect got the bus speed wrong.

Well, you obviously can play games, it's just not really meant for that, games aren't multi threaded.

they still give good game performance, just not as good as they could if the games were optimised for dual CPU's. the vast majority of games are designed for only a single CPU

Their not good for gaming, because they'll perform just as well, or maybe slightly better, then a single 2.4 GHz CPU, which is much cheaper.

Not very cost effective.
