Phenoms are just not as good a Intel's latest offerings. My computer multitasks like a champ. Nothing of gaming substance has really taken advantage of hyperthreading since it started, and there's no need for it when there's four cores. It is better that way.

its not about utilizing ht for gaming newbs.
Its all about multitasking.
Try playing bioshock in window mode with youtube running and converting video at the same time.
My quad core phenom gets crunched hard core.
corei7 is the only way out


You sir, are an idiot.

Get a g73 from asus....

Newegg had them up, plus several resellers including powernotebooks, xoticpc, and gentechpc had them up for sale.

Benching at p9000 vantange and 13000 3dmark06

damn good for a laptop.
