Icon1 AMD's Phenom Unveiled: A Somber Farewell to K8

It's tough to believe that what we're looking at here is a farewell to the K8. When AMD first released the Athlon 64, its performance was absolutely mind blowing. It kept us from recommending Intel processors for at least 3 years; Phenom's arrival, however, is far more somber. Phenom has a difficult job to do, it needs to keep AMD afloat for the next year. Phenom is much like the solemn relative, visiting during a time of great sorrow within the family; let's hope for AMD's sake that it can lift spirits in the New Year.

To be honest, much will depend on how this achitecture will scale. If one can OC it to 4Ghz on air within a year's time we're talking a very different story, as theoretically the memory/chipset subsystem should scale better than penryn.
