TechRadar's verdict

"AMD have got their selves into the six core market with an impressive CPU, but if you are looking for a gaming CPU, then Intel still rule this roost"
  • Six cores for quad core money
  • Slots into existing motherboards
  • Excellent number-crunching
  • Overclocks easily to 4.0GHz
  • Game performance second to Intel i7
  • Turbo CORE not so clever
  • No increase in L3 cache for the extra cores
  • Only dual channel DDR
