  1. I wish AMD clarifies the Max Wattage, price and if this CPU is supported by current AM3+ boards.

    Still a Fail, waiting for Steamroller instead.

    1. Heh..Don't hold your breath Steamroller isn't going to be much better than Piledriver!!!

    2. and how do you know that for sure? its said to have at least 20% better IPC some say 30% or more

      are you a physic able to predict the future? if not then you cant say it wont be much better.


    Talk about gaming...
