I guess if they can price that i5 around the same as a Q8200 it would probubly be a decent cpu, id like to see what kind of multipliers its locked at.
I'd like to think that AMD learned something from the forced migration to the AM2 platform from S939 and that AM3 will be with us for quite some time. In fact, I'm willing to bet my next big platform switch on it.
