Sounds like the exact same thing that was said about early hd4000 series cards lol, deju vu anyone?

What i find interesting is that the phenom II wins in crysis warhead and by a fairly big margin in far cry 2, both games that seem heavily cpu dependent, while the i7 wins in the other games which are more gpu intensive. Perhaps this thing really IS on par/better than intels i7 and atm its simply the chipsets holding amd back. Lets face it amds motherboards are not great for gaming compared to intels. If theyre only $300 theres going to be just as much of a cpu battle with price cuts galore as there has been in the gpu industry.
