If there's gonna be a chip that comfortably beats my OC'd 3570K at stock speeds I'll happily get one of those, if it doesn't come at Intel pricing

I don't get this... they always say they are gonna fight back Intel but never did...
Don't get me wrong I WANT them to come back and smack Intel on the face, because, to be honest, Intel is really ing me off these days... they really need to calm down a little... I mean, they have roughly the same manufacturing process as AMD does, yes they probably invest more in architecture etc. but I don't get why their CPUs have to be so costly...
But I don't think they will... it's too big of a gap to gain back in just a couple of gens...
I don't know...

I have owned AMD product since the old AMD 386-40 which did beat the Intel 386-33.

It's been quite awhile since AMD has been competitive in the cpu market so I understand the frustration. Right now count me as a "doubting Thomas".

I'm not going to hold my breath on this being true.

We need it to decimate all without spending around 10 or 15 grand on overnight parts....
