I got great Front side bus. I got better performing in most situations CPU compared to I5. Specifically at operation that i need the most from CPU - compiling my programs.
I remember there was a time when Athlones owned CPU market. Intel couldn't beat them, so they decided to bully AMD with beating them unfairly in the market, AMD lost battle not because of inferior tech.
Frankly I only see good things about AMD at the moment, with Vishera.
Tests here from Phoronix are great proofs. Feel like doing some benchmark for comparison? Anyone got one of latest i5 here?
We can simply do a test and publish it in different thread.
I got no name GTX660 though and will upgrade my RAM very shortly.
