A preview to the new upcoming i3's and additional i5's. It focuses mainly on the i5-650.
I kinda wanted to get a dually to screw around with, but looks like they're extremely memory limited.
The i3 looks the most impressive i think. It looks like they can match or beat the entire Athlon II lineup, and can match the Phenom II in a couple tests. The Clarkdale i5 isn't as impressive though, you might as well just go with Lynnfield instead.
I'm going to wait these out though i think, my Core 2-based system is still keeping up (while overclocked). I might try and wait and see what AMD's Bulldozer chips look like when they are released (2011 now i think?). There is talk that they might be the same kind of step forward as when Intel went to Core 2.
