    I mean ORB does have a CPU, a very early ES, do yea hes got benches, but they aren't even close to what a real final silicon will be. This is very typical of AMD, b/c their silicon yields are very low for early ES CPUs and increase as the production happens.

    I don't condone that he puts up BS, but i am saying that part of his stuff is probably not made up.

    Yeah usually ES is a very different creature from final consumer level products.

    The BS makes the rest of anything he says BS as well. Boy who cried wolf, and all that.

    I would agree if it was malicious, but I don't think it is.

    According ot his blog, it WAS malicious. I mean, I'm not gonna give dude any more hits, but you cna find his blog. Read it, and tell me you'd repeat that comment again.


    I mean, whatever. I just expect a certain level of professionalism from my peers, and in this situation, I find professionalism greatly lacking. TPU has become very much anti-FUD, and that's exactly what OBR intended when posting all that...FUD.

    Damn these BD threads are becoming more and more repulsive as time goes by :wtf:

    I'm liking the 3.9ghZ and the 4.5GHz Turbo straight outta the box...

    September hey? Hmmm :rolleyes:

    Fair enough, I simply take everything with a large grain of salt, when it comes to leaks and ES and such.

    I figure the success of the FX chips comes down to price point. If they get in right where they should be (relative to performance) then they'll be a huge success. Considering that AMD has taken so long getting these puppies to the window, I'm thinking they will have a harder time setting a competitive MSRP.
    That is the most manly thing I have ever seen. :respect:

    LuLz. You just wanna try to ascend to my level somehow, eh?


    :slap:


    :laugh:



    Back on topic though, I guess I'll have some real numbers of my own by the end of September, if this is correct. I was kinda hoping for it to launch on Friday, myself, but that's just me being selfish.

    i hope it beats out SB and comes close to SB-E

    i feel like intel has been just stringing along, they could have probably released a 4.4GHz SB chip already, but lack of competition has made them unwilling to unleash such performance.

    Finally they did it. Now let the anarchy begin for all i care. :laugh:

    Gotta see though how it performs once it's out & benchmarked right away. And yeah - September 19 is a f***load to wait, but also a f***load of time for me to save for this. Great news bta, now i know i have enough time til i fill up my webpages building/designing portfolio & get some $ for it. :)

    Thanks for ignoring my question, I mean, talking about cars in analogies is more relevant to the topic, right? :shadedshu

    Well, no offense, but you're asking a question that only Intel can answer in a thread about AMD, so yeah, it was ignored. Noone has an answer = no response.

    Price for Sabertooth 990FX already gets lower, atleast in Israel: once it was released it was priced ~1500 sheckels, now 1000 sheckels (~250 USD); wait till September 19 (the date FX-8150/8100 released :)) & if the price sinks all the way down to 200 USD - buy it!!!!!!!!! lol jk I know i will, though i will also wait for actual benchmarking numbers once the CPU released & tested here, hopefully by bta or Wizzard. :toast: all

    I asked that question here because the launch date of new AMD chips is nearer than Intel's, if Intel were the ones releasing Ivy Bridge in September then I would've asked in that thread. And seeing that most have been in the market for a long time, I was hoping you could account from your experience something like what I asked happening before. Anyway, like you said, no answer, no reply. Saying "only Intel knows" earlier was too much work for you I guess, thanks anyway. Keep on topic.

    The only thing I wait for when a piece of hardware is released is:

    A W1zzard certified review.

    Then and only then will I make a decision to buy, to wait, or go an alternate route.
