AMD has released several new processors in the Athlon and Phenom II lineups and aimed them squarely at budget-minded consumers. The chips have already been benchmarked on several sites, and, overall, they appear to offer good performance for the price.
I'm so glad AMD has been doing pretty steadily recently. Intel was getting way too cocky after the Core2Duo and Core2Quad slaughter against AMD's Athlons and Phenoms.
Well, maybe slaughter is a little strong; but regardless, AMD was definitely hurt pretty badly.
