    AMD's 3.4GHz Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition review roundup: fast, but not Intel fast

    Lots of links to reviews at that link, but bottom line:

    Unfortunately, it still couldn't put the hurt on a smattering of Intel chips, with the Core 2 Extreme QX9770 and Core i7 920 besting it in all but a few tests. All told, the chip was found to be an incremental (albeit fun) update, but given that it's currently priced between Intel's Core 2 Quad Q9550 ($219) and the aforesaid Core i7 920 ($279), it's not a clear-cut bargain at $245. Still, give it a lil' shelf time, let the MSRP sink and it just might be worth another look in due time.

    Honestly, what was everyone expecting? There wasn't much change from the 955 to the 965 besides a few additional megahertz in clock speed. While hardcore overclockers may actually turn out some nice clocks on it, the product as is doesn't offer that much more power.
