Surprisingly confirms the high potential of Opteron for overclocking. (50%higher!) At the same time, those who do not intend to overclock ( i.e. wanna their systems to last longer) wont get too much out of this chip.

Is able to leap tall monitors in a single bound,
Is it Intel?
Is it Via?
Hell no, its AMD and i'm hooked!
