Its kinda sad to see AMD reduced to PR stunts like this. Anyone else remember when Intel tried the same thing (aka the "MHz Wars") to beat AMD's top dogs. Now AMD is doing it to try and match (and beat in some instances) Intel mid teir line via shear speed. You just KNOW that FX chip is going to run boiling hot and suck down power like theres no tomorrow...just like Intel's did back in the day. This is NOT what AMD needs to do. AMD needs to indeed price drop the BDs (and die shrink PII) but they do NOT need to further the BD's rep for running hot and energy inefficient!

Sad, sad day.
