    Wat the different between 925 and 920?


    And the code number is same as I7... 920 and 940 Zzzz


    If both companies 920 and 940 can match with one another, AMD has been doing very very good lol...

    According to techreport, the Opteron shanghai at 2.7 GHz is slightly faster than the 45nm harpertown Xeon at 3GHz.Still the shanghai chips do not use HT 3.0 so they don't get the the bandwidth that the phenoms will get.

    I have some high expectations for the new phenoms.

    Could you care to give us link? If it's really slightly faster on non-synthetic benchmarks..then it's really promising. Though price of those Opterons are promising for performance..$990 for 2.7GHz

    28 USD / 20€ per month, unlimited transfers

    That's from an E-mail message i recieved from Scott Wasson, a guy @ techreport.He's preparing a review for the new Shanghai processors.
    He's gonna include some desktop type benchmarks as well in this review.
    So,stay tune Nicy, cuz you may get a good idea about the performance of the upcoming phenoms from this review.

    don't forget that the opterons are server parts.The phenoms will definitely be priced at sub 300$...if not 250$.

    According to Scott,The 2.7 GHz shanghai is, overall, slightly faster than the 3 GHz harpertown.If so than the 3 GHz phenom 940 may be able to compete against the 2.66GHz 920 core i7.

    Darn it... O Fickle God of Processors, why do this to me when I'd decided on an Intel rig?
