There will be ES units sent to reviewers before launch, so quite likely.

Hmmm... im not as excited as i used to be.

Maybe because i havent seen a real benchmark yet. Everything else is hearsay and rumours.

the 95W one of the same chip will cost more money. and yes will have more OC room, since it doesn't get as hot right away

interesting,though,if they are the same stepping. could be the hotter one can be as easily downvolted.

or they cherry picked the better chips and labeled them 95 watters.

@evo. for gaming? good choice. for other multithreaded stuff,we'll see ;)
