They make it run cooler and give that 15-20% performance jump with a real world everyday OC at 5Ghz I will be happy in the short term. It would help repair some of the rage.

That is what they are saying there shootin for .... If the trinity based A series chips have shown anything ... it should be about so ...

What has me curious is if there gonna launch a 5 unit (10 core) desktop version of it ..... Also sounds like steamroller will be a revised packaging by the anouncement of 10xx series chipsets being pushed back to 2H 2013.
