for the market's sake, i hope the performance is enough to challenge intel. All i know is i love my x6 phenom, it handles everything amazingly and i didnt have to pay a bunch of money for it.
I hope AMD gets a winner in this release. I'm all for their continued existence because they help to keep Intel's prices in check.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
"I'm all for their continued existence because they help to keep Intel's prices in check." Agreed! I don't run AMD at this time but I'd love to see more competition for Intel. As it stands right now, I think Intel charges about 20-50% too much for their processors.
I agree with all of the other comments on this I also do hope this is due to early release processors as well. I was hoping for another killer CPU line from AMD with this one specifically. While we do not know what the release units will be like lets keep hoping these early engineering release chips are just the bottom step in the functional release units.
I hope the bulldozer doesnt dip to far to Phenom II perfomance levels...I read a few other articles about these benchmarks and people were saying that it could perform similar to the Pentium 4 with HT. Supposedly under certain loads it perfoms surprisingly well but under others it the SMT actually reduces performance significantly....i hope that isnt the case.Im rooting for you AMD! In anycase this is a really interesting step in the X86 market, it will be interesting to see how this changes the market and possible future processors from both sides.
Oh and what i meant by similar to P4HT was that the SMT can impact perfomance negatively, not that it will pefrom similarly.
The name just sounds cool ... BULLDOZER!!!!
Way better then Sandy Vagina.. i mean bridge.
I'm pulling for AMD as well. They have proven they can beat Intel as they did with the FX line back in the day.
I am hoping to see some real performance numbers coming out soon
