Wich leads me to this question then, How can it be so good if there are none out yet ?

seems like some thing is wierd here . One more thing why is there no AM2's out then (or rather leacking out )??

What?

It's the next generation of their processors. They do have to be built before they can be sold. It's not like one day they decide to make a processor, and Picard says "Make it so." And poof, suddenly stores are filled with them. They have to be made, tested, bugs fixed in next batch, tested, etc. By the time they have one product ready to go, they already have the next one in the works.

Yes, it's a common marketing practice. Send out some to a select group of reviewers. They review it, hype it and people get excited. Not exactly new in the business world.

Okay, what is so amazing about that? It's just following your needs, not the company's.
