When an $80 E2200 dual core can hit 3.3Ghz with ease, and intel's old generation Q6600s can do 2.4Ghz -> 3.6Ghz, you have to really wonder how they can continue failing like this.

Bring on the 45nm Barcelonas, and lets hope they turn it around.

It may just be that 65nm was a bad process for AMD. The AMD 90nm chips were great, with Venice chips overclocking extremely well. Maybe 45 will be a lucky number.
