What makes this a "Black Edition"? The box? I guess I just don't get the blackness of it...

Really though, you have to give AMD some credit. They've ridden this A64 architecture HARD for a long time. I'm amazed it's come this far. Let's hope it doesn't have to go any further though. Barcelona is long overdue.

3.2GHz natively?! Holy cow! I had problems getting that far on a single core, not talking dual cores here!

It just came to me, and I had to put it in...

It's like... How much more black could this be? And the answer is: None more black.

That's pretty nice at that price. AMD has been giving Intel a run for it's money lately, especially with these prices.

That's cool. I'm still gonna wait for Phenom though before I upgrade. I'm still confused though as to what makes it "black".

Black edition for the Black box. :D

DFI' s Infinity Dark series for the dark/black box :D

I think its just a marketing scheme to make it look special. Like all these Vista-Ready stickers on things. Vista-Ready USB fans will be next.

:withstupid: At that price, that's probably the best buy, price-to-performance, right now. If I currently had AM2, I'd consider it, but as I don't, I'm skeptical on moving to AM2 with something else possibly on the horizon.

As for the "black edition", that's just stupid. Why don't they get a silverish box and call it the Platinum edition :rolleyes:. At least they could have made the processor black...not that you'd ever see it with an hsf or waterblock on it.

True, but think about how cool a black CPU would look! ...At least until you lap it. :lol:
