    Wow! It looks like the new Phenom IIs are a lot more forgiving on HT and NB speeds.

    Preparing, and actually doing are two different things. Let me know when they do it, they still have a long way to go.

    One thing worth mentioning, they got every core up to 5,9GHz, not just two of them to over 6... That gives quite a boost too. Other thing. These are ES chips, retail parts should perform even better.

    Or, they are cherry-picked consumer chips that got a ES tag on them.
     
    newtekie1 and Darknova say thanks.

    That would be my guess. Probably a 940BE cherry picked by AMD and relabelled to an ES.

    5.9Ghz @ 1.5v that's nice!

    And its nice to see something other than a Gigabyte board. Seems like every AMD bench or review that gets posted is on a Gigabyte board.

    They did it, but now their on second place. If you look at the dates of AMD run and the i7 run, you'll see that the i7 score was a backup score.

    Team Finland once stated that backups don't belong in their policy...

    They are going to put those HD's under LN2, so I'll guess they will get one nice score.
