This is the much anticipated 8 core processor from AMD. This thing has been delayed more than a Tom Cruise movie. Despite AMD’s best efforts there have been quite a few “leaked” benchmarks and reviews regarding its performance. We are going to see if this new chip is worth the hype or if it falls flat on its face. The stage for this epic battle has been set for quite some time and Intel has been the reigning performance champ for many years now.
Gone are the glory days of the AMD Athlon 64 that completely trounced the Intel Pentium. This is AMD’s chance to take the crown back and show how they’ve used this time to come up with a processor that can finally dominate the performance market again.
