Though the results are impressive, I'll probably wait until I have to redo my entire setup before I go to Intel. Strange considering we have a 32nm plant not twenty minutes away...

The i5 655 pricing is definitely too high.

But what cooling type/brand were you testing these 2 new chips with?

The review said soon, so maybe within a few weeks? Most NDAs are lifted a couple of weeks in advance, least they seem to be anyway.

Anyways, nice review, both parts look really good. Kind of makes me really want one. :lol: Six core AMD or unlocked multiplier Intel...

For Intel parts, yes. Oh no that's true; NVIDIA also did that with Fermi. Besides that, the vast majority of NDA lifts are the same date as the actual product hits retail...

Yeah, I was going with the last few NDAs that have happened.. especially the Fermi one. I kind of miss the majority (what with the recent trend) of the NDAs getting lifted and then you see the part in the store or on Newegg or something that day or the next day.

That is unless you were one of the minority that bought the top of the line Extreme Edition processors that were unlocked and may very well have been made of unobtainium based on the pricing structure of the Extreme Edition.
