Pretty good find rrplay :)  I am getting more excited for when this comes out to see some benchmarks as well.  Maybe if we are lucky the AMD conference that HotHardware is giving away tickets too will have even more information.

It cost too much,...unless it blows Sandy Bridge out of the water in every way.

"I think its more than fare. I mean, $320 for Eight Cores, it's a bargain. And with a name like Bulldozer, yes, it better blow out Sandy Bridge, or at least the 2600K away."

It's reasonable but still, I'm going to wait for the reviews before I make up my mind.
