"not ready for prime-time"4.0 starson by kaman3
Pros: stays very cool, fast gamer, great multi-tasking
Cons: quirky behavior, infrequent AMD drivers/updates
Summary: I'm sure most of the annoyances* I've encountered will be worked out, but it's been long enough for AMD to fully support this pricey product.
*1-I've got to set affinity(disable 1 of the cores) for some apps to run properly.
2-doesn't have alot of latitude for OCing.
3-it's rather picky about what periferals, components, and some software it'll work with.
I'm hoping that when ista hits the shelves, this puppy will be optimized and'll fulfill it's potential.
Not recommended for those who want a CPU they can install and forget - it's high maintenance.
