So it finally has arrived in America after being in Japan since this summer.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

A few questions about this thing at stock.

1. with turbo core the 960T runs two cores at 3.4ghz
Is this about the same power draw as the Phenom II x2 565 3.4ghz

I run allot of older games at this concept really appeals to me with my power bill.



2. Any idea of if they are just liquidating them or is the first signs of them entering the market.



3. Any idea how well this thing performs vs a Phenom II x4 945


Note: I am aware of the core unlock to a X6 and the fact its a black edition.
I am more interested in the turbo core feature for saving some $$$ on the power bill

i always thought that was an OEM CPU but here are the answers to your question.

1. pretty much in the same ballpark power usage wise but I doubt you would save enough to buy a cup of coffee from DD each month going from 4 to 2 cores.

2. they are supposed to be OEM chips that where 6 cores CPUs with 2 shut down for various reasons (1-2 bad cores, meet market demand, etc.,)

3. they would be the same performance wise.
