Highest clocked quad so far

AMD is gearing up to launch its fastest CPU thus far, the Phenom II 965 Black Edition (HDZ965FBGIBOX), clocked at 3.4GHz.
This is the highest clocked quad-core so far. It is 200MHz faster than
the Phenom II 955 and 400MHz faster than Intel's Q9650. Intel's Core i7
975 EE runs at 3.33GHz, and it will still offer superior performance,
but it's about four times pricier than the new Phenom II.
Speaking of pricing, we still don't know the exact numbers, but the
Phenom II 955 currently sells for €170, and you can expect the new part
to end up slightly higher.
