A shame... It just seems like AMD can't get a break around here. However, I am hopeful that AMD will resolve it's problems and release a later iteration of Bulldozer that with the promised x86 performance increase in a slide I remember seeing.
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
Underwhelm after underwhelm...I'm still hopeful AMD can stop this bad streak, even if I can't see how. By the time Bulldozer is fixed, Ivy Bridge will be out. Geewhiz.
Really not surprising with the underwhelming performance of the bulldozer cores. Many cores on a server processor is a good thing because you can consolidate many servers onto one physical piece of hardware. Unfortunately for this to be plausible those cores have to perform reasonably.
They just changed CEO's at that company. Maybe this Bulldozer Debacle has to do with the 'old news' CEO who is gone. What would the proper terminology be?,....residual fallout?
Maybe they're gonna pull a Rabbit out of their hats soon.
Maybe they should,......
The thing is that I like AMD. I like supporting the underdog because I believe that Intel's prices will certainly go through the roof if they're gone and these parts are already too expensive as I see it.
They're really making it hard for me to support them lately. I will admit that my Fusion APU system is a great little PC and I really like the way it performs. But I want to see some High Performance, smokin' fast CPU's out of these guys too!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
