Default Intel i7-990x Extreme Reviews Itself [TechReview]

Friggin' Sandy Bridge, the golden child. My Westmere brothers and I are the biggest, baddest PC processors on the planet, and somehow, she still gets all the glory. Everybody is all, "Sandy this, Sandy that," even though she's slower than us. I say: if being second-rate and cheap were the keys to success in the world, everybody would be driving a Kia.
Intel's Core i7-990X Extreme processor - The Tech Report - Page 1

I thought it was a pretty amusing read.
