    That's a little annoying, I'd have probably bought one last week. Oh well, quad core it has to be

    No surprises there. It is a cut down Phenom and it performs like a cut down Phemon.

    Lets see if AMD can pull one out of the bag in January with Phenom II.

    Yup, the higher cache phenom IIs should be quite interesting - if not in average score then in minimums, as Hexus found with the encoding tests.

    no overclocking?

    i'd be interested in how high the dual cores would go.

    Stating which bios you used would be helpful. I suspect it was the F2 for the Gigabyte 790gx and not the new F3H now available.

    Re: Reviews - AMD Athlon X2 7750 Black Edition: dual-core Phenom at the ready

    You'll have to pardon my question if it's explained elsewhere, but I've just signed on here. How does Hexus.PiFast compare with the PiFast found at numbers.computation.free.fr? I obtained the Windows binary from that site, and ran it against a pair of servers I manage equipped with Opteron 1214 processors (2.2GHz, 90nm), and using the fastest computation methods of this particular program, the 1214 will calculate 10,000,000 digits of pi in a bit less than 41 seconds. All of my Intel servers utilize older technology, which doesn't really tell me much (other than that a Nocona-based Xeon requires a bit less than 62 seconds to complete the same task) from the Intel side of things.
    This isn't to nitpick the review, of course - I think many of us who may've been loudly shouting for AMD to give us a dual-core with more L2 or an L3 cache are somewhat disappointed with the Kuma results *guilty look*. I would simply like to get a feel for how the new part compares with my rattletrap 5000+BE at home, and am looking for a solid basis for comparison.
