No discussion at all??? I at least expected someone to bring up how SPCRs numbers for power consumption don't quite match most of the other industry reviews..

Here's some discussion: meh

I'm hard pressed to come up with a use where this CPU is the right pick over an alternative.

As long as those numbers are significantly higher than those of intels CPUs at a comparable processing power, i personally won't recommend any AMD AM3+.

On top of that it occurs to me that current AM3+ boards fall way behind the intel counterparts regarding power consumption and USB3 support.
