Finally AMD has released a top end AM3 processor the X4 955 BE , at about £245 in th UK it is about the same price as an i7 920 but out performs it. With 3.2 GHZ stock and the ability to overclock to a stable 3.7ghz with stock cooler. It has 6mb of cache and I suspect that the X3 720 BE is a X4 955 BE minus one core, as the stats seem so similar.
I'd like this processor but I'm still going with an X3 720 BE so I can invest in a higher end GPU, since games are more and more GPU dependent now. However it seems AMD is making good with the Phenom II line up, and with the new platform we are starting to see victory in the crusade against the Infitel, soon with brother X4 955 BE we shall slaughter the whore i7 Infitel!
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience"
