TechRadar's verdict

"A solid quad-core processor, but the end is nigh. AMD's newer six-core is better value."
For
  • Good value compared to Intel's quads
  • C3 stepping has improved overclocking headroom
Against
  • Intel has a big performance advantage in games
  • AMD's new six-core chip is only slightly pricier
