AMD Phenom II Performance Uplift

This slide shows the key areas of improvements for 45nm Phenom II over 65nm Phenom such as more IPC, higher frequency, more cache, and DDR3 support. There is a 5% cache uplift on the cache architecture and a 3% uplift on the core architecture. With all these innovations in place, AMD is touting a 20% performance boost. I guess this is not the exciting part for enthusiasts but the massive overclocking headroom of Phenom II where one can go above 4GHz on just air cooling and 6.3GHz on LN2 as demonstrated in this webcast.
