AMD's Phenom processors review
Chances are you already know at thing or two about Phenom processors. After all, they've been in development for years, and AMD has been talking about them publicly for quite some time. In fact, we've even reviewed the exact same silicon in different outerwear, the quad-core Opterons, earlier this year. We've heard all about how Phenom will be the world's first "native" quad-core desktop processor, how such integration has tangible benefits for performance and power consumption, and how folks will be absolutely stunned by the synergistic convergence of Phenom processors, the 790FX chipset, and Radeon HD 3800-series GPUs.
What we didn't have, however, were answers about some key Phenom basics: How fast will it be, both in terms of clock speeds and performance per clock? When will it be available? And will it have been worth the, erm, considerable wait?
Today we have some answers, after a long weekend spent in hands-on testing with a Phenom processor. Read on for our extensive first look at AMD's brand-new CPU.

The supreme commander results are interesting, the hardwarecanucks review found that the Phenom had a lot better min FPS but median low indicates that isn't the case. But there, the Phenom gets raped (speaking only of the min FPS) by a Q6600.
