Well when they say worse, I think they mean slower than the i7 920. What I think, is Core i5 will be on par with the 920 even better, BUT, the i7 will have new CPU and thus a larger performance gap. Also, you will be able to just upgrade your CPU afterwards.

Also, you can always say you have Triple Channel and others don't

On a side note, anyone notice how awesome Core i5 sound
