    Well boys and Girls the Dual Core Warz have officially begun as CDW is already taking up pre-orders for the AMD Athlon X2 4800+ with an ETA of 2 weeks. :D

    Steve'O better have something good for the WWDC or else the future will look bleek for the G5. I have already seen people OC these chips to 3ghz w/water and 2.8ghz on AIR. I can just see the Cinebench scores of 800+ :eek: .

    So much for the Pentium D beating AMD to market, looks like I will be Ebaying my Venice core CPU sooner then expected.

    FYI...Hector... I just hit 2.7ghz on my Venice 3000+ :D...2.7ghz from a $149 CPU ...Fu*king STEAL ..THANK YOU AMD.

    As much as I can't believe they'd update at WWDC because of the recent 2.7 release, they REEEEEAALLY need to :( :rolleyes:

    I think it's more of a IBM c'mon issue.

    That 4400+ sure looks tempting... Pricey, but I don't want single core when dual is available.. and I'm not touching Intel.

    Yes, I know. What I ment was that despite how much more expensive dual core currently is compared to single (at least in the case of AMD), I'm getting dual.
