yeah me too but I mean what are they going to compare the 955 BE to the I7 920?
Other than that there really isn't a close comparison when it comes to money and performance other than that.
I mean the I7 940 is $569 bucks and the 965 is like $1010 It just doesn't make much sense that the closest 2 chips in specs are $750 in price difference because the 955 BE has basically the same specs as the 950 Extreme. Even though the I7 965 is a lot better than the 955 BE it still doesn't justify a $750 difference in my eyes. Shame on Intel for now allowing their customers to have quality without taking out a mortgage.
And when they do test them they do crap like this. Take a look at the mobos and memory they used and then tell me that this is a legit test system comparison they changed the CPU out and placed the 955 BE in this setup as well for comparison...
I wonder how much intel paid for this...
