    According to NewEgg, it's still Kuma, meaning quad with two cores disabled. It's really just a 7750 + 100Mhz, as far as I can tell...

    still, if any1 wants one, go for a 81xepmw.

    I do 3.7 STABLE on PH1. with my 810epMW.
    others do like 2.9 -3.1 of the quads, meaning the duals do 3.1-3.3 and thats pretty bad! the 81x does atleast 3.2-3.3 as quad ;)

    But still, they aint really good, if they aint priced hilariously low, on the posetive side, you can buy CL5 memory @ 800 mhz and get pretty good performance with the IMc, not compared to other amd's but compared to C2D.

    all you can do is speculate that it is judt the x2 7750 with unlocked multi

    it must have been tweaked maybe it is lower power consumption or something, a larger increase in clocks but for them to claim 50% increase must mean something

    AMD bashers are out in full force this week and its making me sick, without any competition youd have a monopoly on the market, intel hold the top end crown but amd still offers good value for midrange and budget

    if someone wants a new pc id recomend this or a phenom II over a 775 that is old tech

    these parts are far better than the 6400/6000/5000.

    On biostar's website under my board's supported cpu list, this cpu is listed and listed as 95w with just a 100 Mhz bump.

    http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/t-series/cpu_support.php?S_ID=353

    I don't understand why create 2 parts with unlocked multi with in the 100Mhz diff range? Why not just blow the remaining stock for say $50 with a heatpipe cooler and be done with this family cpu.

    Bring on the new weapons AMD.

    Looks like a winner once the price drops to below $70, maybe we will see the E5300 drop in price also, and I'd like to see this compared with the E5300.
