    Time to get those phenom now! There are no quad cores being offered at price of X2 by Intel so, AMD just got themselves a nice scheme to get few bucks.

    Don't think I'll buy a TLB errata chip, no matter how cheap it is.

    Better luck with B3.

    If only they do it when they are at the top when Intel was down.
    But they kept their prices very high 2 years back before Conroe was out.
    Things have changed for the better for Intel now.
    AmD needs a miracle to topple Intel....
    Competition is good for us. And we know when to switch...yah !

    I don't mind to pay premium price if AMD Phenom is at least on par with intel 45nm chips

    AMD should not buy over ATI so that they can focus on CPU

    Now CPU can't fight with intel and ATI cannot fight with nvidia...haiz....sad...no Phenom for me. Gotta skip AM2+

    I think with the price cut, the current Phenom with the bug is still a decent buy. I think it will be good news for those that are planning to get a Phenom.

    agreed, the bug isn't a big problem, intel also have bugs, just no one wanna highlight and burst the intel fanboy's bubble. Its still a decent cpu
