quote: Even AMD said themselves before release that people shouldn't expect miracles from AM2 at release
quote: I'll agree that the chips improved to the point where there was a couple of degrees of improvement (disregarding the Semprons of course), but nothing to jump up and down about. And definitely nothing that would say the early previews/benchmarks were misleading
quote: You know full well that Anand had updated reviews as new ES chips became available to them
quote: When all is said and done, I just hope we'll see some good competition between Intel and AMD on the desktop
