Core2 Duo E8500 = $248.

Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition =  $198.

 Beating Intel for $50 less without touching the multiplier = priceless.

I just got my issue of Maximum PC and i can't believe a 2.66ghz proc beat a 3.0ghz one... i mean i'm brand loyal to intel but come on amd!!!

I agree about the SKU analogy...... WTH?

anyway, i still like AMD and i like the choice that they give you about DDR2 and DDR3 plus being able to use AM2+

Why do some of the charts have AM/PM by the time for how long it took to do a task. Do the only work in the morning or night. And I second what Techrocket9 said "NO MORE CHARTS" I thought I was reading Toms hardware for a second.

I haven't used Excel in years but I'm guessing that the AM/PM times are some sort of automatic formatting done by Excel.

Was expecting some higher clocks from the AM3 chips.

 I mean, come on AMD. THe highest speed released in this group is a 2.8ghz TRIPLE CORE ?!?!?!?

This is getting real old. Let's try for 3.2 or higher.

the 720 kicks the crap out of the high end C2D's for less

 

I think AMD doesn't want to be in a clock speed war with Intel

Everyone thinks they want choices, but then they just get confused and end up getting nothing. Twenty-two processors? Really? Wow.

Yeah, look at all of the SKUs for Windows 7. You'd think Microsoft would have learned after the mess of Vista SKUs.
