The E2200 is even worse, but they still call it pentium.

the phenom 2 x2 is awesome. I might buy one just to give it a go. If it doesn't work, I'll sell it to my friend who wants an AMD dual core.

And WTF is up with intel changing names of old products? the E5200 was originally pentium Dual core, now it is core 2 duo all of a sudden?!
The E5xxx are 45nm parts. The E2xxx which they replaced were 65nm parts. They are both based on the Core architecture, and are not related to Netburst in any way.

Well, its the fact that they were released as one thing, then intel went back, and changed it to the newer, more popular name, so they would sell better.

I think he's getting at THIS load of BS. Which is more of a load of BS, IMHO, than the fact that they are phasing them out. Even though no one in their right mind would buy one, it's still ridiculous.

If I need to back up a statement, I'd remember it.

Yeah in the article I read they aren't changing the socket at all. They will use it with the new chips but are discontinuing the I7.

So maybe thats not glory you smell...

A Dual core disguised as a Quad core! OMFG! It's $104 bucks! It overclocks like hell! It's . . . . somewhat retarted . . . . . XDDD
But that's AMD's fault XD
Sounds pretty good. I just did some research and it seems the first sets of batches are the most sucessful at unlocking. As they are released, unlocking them will be less and less likely.
Plus, it depends on the BIOS, with AMD trying to make manufacturers place up to date BIOS's that do not allow the unlocking function (though some manufacturers still do in the form of a Hybrid config).

One last issue; It seems to also stop the chip's thermal diodes from working, so does this mean you couldn't check temps?

It's just a shame AMD processors seem to lag behind Intel when it comes to 3D rendering and such, otherwise, they'd be an easy bet.
