The CPU clock speed as read by 3DMark and CPU-Z are at disparity, count the CPU-Z reading.

Yep... Yay for AMD! woot!!

thats unbelievable ... AMD has finally made some good CPU's. I wonder how much bigger improvements when the PII are on DDR3

1.84vcore aswell... Thats pretty good, werent the i7's around ~1.8v at only 6? :love::love::love::love::love:

*edit* erm 5.1ghz around 1.7v for the i7's

erm... what AMD used was 3DMark05... and the i7's OC users used Vantage for their 40k...

correct me if im wrong but isnt vantage score higher than mark05?

This feat isn't related to the Core i7 feat. It is to show that Phenom II X4 is bench-stable at 6.30 GHz, though I would've liked to see more benchmarks being run.

Word

Ive been an AMD fan for years, when AMD had their *downhill* performance on their cpu's past couple years, i was disappointment :shadedshu but I am very happy to see that now AMD can push their CPU's up that far...

AMD FTW! :rockout:

And yes, more tests we gotta see! I am looking forward what will be next

Why didn't they push the 4870's a bit further.

i assume to put less stress on the system. the power draw from 2 HD 4870X2 cards is quite big and its prolly even bigger when overclocked. I would think that they would've attained slightly better results with a single low end card. It actually be nice to see two different tests: the one they did with 2 HD 4870X2s going for the world record and one with a lets say an HD 4670 which would possinly allow them to lessen the power draw and push the Phenom further.

Neither support ACC required by AM2+ Denebs to reach those speeds.

Interesting, i thought they did have ACC just like ATI chipset boards. Hopefully nvidia will fix this in the next revision.

Yep definatly but I suppose it somewhat depends really which "better" you mean, I think it's pretty much general knowledge already that the P2 across the board cannot match an i7 or even a high end Yorkfield but in some things it can match the competition, with at least decent overclocking options with this chip, what you actually have is a decent performing AMD platform that can at least compete in some area's, the platform price for this will be good seeing as some decent supporting motherboards whether it be AM2+ or shortly AM3 will be as little as half the price of top end x58 boards.....all in all AMD is at least back in the real "bang for buck" game and thats a start many of us have been waiting for.

With the right price and so much overclocking headroom it will bee a definitely HUGE MARKET HIT!!! :rockout:
