    'Locked' AMD Zambezi Silicon Being Branded As New Phenom II Line

    Well, Phenom (8xx) also was just a higher clocked Athlon, which was outperformed by Phenom (same architecture tho, just L3 cacheless). But this, indeed, doesn't make sense. AMD always finds a way how to troll!

    AMD Radeon HD 7970 3 GB

    Well, those were his "cherry-picked" benchmarks (not overall) where 580 was actually ahead of HD7970. As you can see, he has 570 in his rig so there might be some nVidia fanboism coming out. Card is great, price is not. New architecture seems to take away those benchmarks where nvidia cards...

    Does anyone have a spare Dota II beta key?
