AMD Phenom II Released

AMD Phenom II has been released and it's performance is more or less equivalent to the same price range of other Intel Core 2 Quads. However, it still can't beat the Core i7 cpu. AMD Phenom II employs 45nm manufacturing process (lower power consumption) and contains 6MB of L3 cache. 

AMD Phenom II currently available as Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition and Phenom II X4 920 (trying to copy the Core i7 940 & 920?) with price of 275 USD and 235 USD respectively.

More reviews here:

What do you guys and girls think about this processor? Will it be able to take a small chunk of Intel controlled market or more than that? Will it prove more worth than Intel Core 2 Quads systems? Leave your comments then~
