    There's been mixed reviews so far as they're not living up to expectations of being the first true quad core CPU.

    It does seem the the Core 2 Quads are still holding a small performance advantage which is a bit of a shame really as Intel are starting to open up on AMD. They have their 45nm process sorted and AMD have only recently got 65nm sorted. I think with a ramp in clock speed and new motherboards on the way Phenom should be able to hold its own. Intel got caught sleeping with Pentium 4 when AMD brought out K8 (Athlon 64/X2) but it doesn't look like they want to repeat the same mistake. They don't seem to be able to do anything wrong at the moment and they have far more cash and resources than AMD. I hope AMD stays afloat, competition is good for us all and I don't think we would have CPUs like Core 2/Phenom without it.
