Well, it's official, Intel is about to lose the game, if they haven't already (Intel's Hex core, which has 6 physical and 6 logical equaling 12 cores, is about 1000 USD if I recall.)

These new hex cores fit in already-made AM3 Slot 140W Motherboards, so no need to upgrade a motherboard if you have one that supports it.

Haha! This is good news, hardly suprising though, one of the reasons i love AMD is the prices ^_^

2011 has bulldozer coming out too. Might want to wait unless you plan to upgrade next year again?

(Bulldozer needs a new motherboard, goddess forbid. Won't work on current AM3s.)
