    The anticipation surrounding AMD's upcoming Socket AM2 platform is amazing to witness. On the one hand, there is hardly a secret about it that had not been discovered months ahead of the product launch, so there is discussion of it all over the place. On the other hand, the enthusiast crowds are eager for the new platform, which will be associated with important changes in the PC world; these include the introduction of Microsoft's Vista operating system and AMD's first quad core processors. However, AM2 has not been about being better or faster until lately.....


    lots more to read....

    yeah from what I read the performance wasn't nothing to write home about in comparison, but,
    they are using an engineering sample, and a stipped down, pre-production mobo
    and it was still runnin neck and neck with the X2 4800
