It’s all about the Pentiums, baby.

Being a long time fan boy of AMD, it hurts me to see Intel slashing its prices. Although un-like other fan boys I know when it’s time to jump ship (only for a little while). For only 25 bucks more than AMD’s cheapest quad core, you’ll get Intel’s quad core which spanks AMD’s best quad core in almost every benchmark, ouch. By the way, I do mean on DDR2 mobo’s, I’m not counting Intel’s advantage with DDR3, because that would be even more painful.

For me it’s not about brand loyalty, if you are a sheep then maybe it is for you. If you are a true geek or nerd or whatever you call yourself it’s about speed, pure and unadulterated speed, (and cost). That magical price/performance ratio. So all hail to the new price/performance king, Intel.

Here’s the link to another beautiful xbitlabs article, it includes the new pricing.

Wii-Specific Lightsaber Dueling in Force Unleashed

“Joystiq had a chance to test the Wii-specific light-saber fighting in The Force Unleashed, and they walked away impressed, claiming it could almost be shipped as its own game. I probably wouldn’t go that far: the mode will require two players to play, as there is no AI to duel against. Still, the system sounds pretty slick, and the Wii version of the game suddenly became much more attractive. ” – Source
