Google Translate anyone?

Translated version of http://www.expreview.com/review/2008-09-19/1221797775d10042.html

3.3 ghz with 1.43v stable operation sadly no benchies with overclocking. The review focuses heavily on comparing the performance of its older brother the 5000+.

Nice. A 20% improvement at the same clock, maybe AMD's research is starting to show a benefit?

This would be a good time for AMD to either take back the crown, or to at least offer a real competitor to Intel's latest offerings.

I agree SS unfortunately the only thing I am banking on is that Asus provides a bios update to support this cpu on my current motherboard or I'll pretty much move to an Intel platform hands down.

Futhermore...I sent an e-mail off to NCIX unfortunately they have no word on the ETA and suggested I keep checking the website for an update .

A little furthing diggin and I found this place that has an ETA of 8-10 business days "subject to change" I would imagine.
