 The 1075T is most likely to be the Black Edition proc. I can't wait. This is going to be great for Rendering without spending wads of cash for Intels hexa.

Which ones will be Black Edition chips?

The killer point for these chips is possbile rumored pricing of $499-$599.  That's half the intel point.  If its true, then intel is gonna take a big hit.  Time will tell.

sorry but half the price also includes half the performance it's about time AMD put up a fight and made CPU's that can compete clock for clock with Intel's core i7 then and only then will true competition begin to happen with price

Then again, sometimes clock speed isn't everything. Compare a 3.6-3.8 GHz Pentium 4 to, say, a 2.4-2.6 GHz Athlon/Core 2 Duo/Phenom/anything really.

Don't get me wrong i root for the underdog AMD i own one (Athlon x2 7750BE) but compare that to the equivalently clocked core 2 duo and it gets it's butt smacked all I'm saying is AMD has nothing to compare to an Intel core i7  a core 2 quad maybe but not an i7

I really hope that these chips will be comparable to Intel's lineup. The compatition would be a win for us consumers.
