As for that quote... wrong website ;-)
Nate's a good friend though, so kudos regardless!
I definitely thought that said Techgage. Wow, sorry, lol.
Really? Huh, well, I guess that makes sense, different architecture and all, but you'd think a CPU was a CPU. Ah....we get the striped down version. Makes sense. I heard Thermalright issuing a statement that people shouldn't use FurMark to test their GPU stability because it makes the cards too hot. Maybe Intel is worried of the same!
