    The truth doesn't matter only what people believe, and if people believe this, fud or not, it's still what people believe. All AMD has to do is speak up, and instead they allow negative specualtion, and as a result there is a lot of negative press.


    obvious troll if obvious

    What negative speculation? From a bunch of Intel fanboys? Who cares!

    All they have said is Q4 2011.

    LOL because I bought a video card I am a fanboy. . .. geuss I am an intel, and AMD, and an ATI fanboy as well because I own current gens of all of them, please GTFO.

    Also please explain what Nvidia has to do with AMD and their launch dates as I understand they are 2 different company's making different products. . . . kthxbai

    back on topic plz



    So anyone who speculates about a launch date is an intel fanboy .. . . uhuh. . . . that's solid logic there . . . .. my shields can't repel stupidity of that magnitude! :shadedshu

    Let's just wait and see what will the FX's be like, I bet none of Us would want to have Intels monopol here.. Competition is the best for Us customers so let's just hope new hardware is at least as good as SB

    Speculating and getting mad when a company doesn't fulfill your speculation is a sign of an idiot.

    I'm not mad, I simply stated it's sad to see, why would I be mad I am skipping BD because it will be phased out in less than a year for a new socket.:twitch:

    *slow clap* so because I don't agree or see it your way I'm an idiot .. . that's a healthy view.


    ON TOPIC PLZ

















    I will say this one more time AMD should just speak up.

    Why would you put out a solid release date only to blow it off? That would piss your customers off more than saying you're on track for the end of September.

    Speculation is nothing, Bulldozer will release sometime Q4 2k11, as AMD has already stated. Hell, they just put out the server processor today.

    Relax people.

    To you, they are unsure. To them, they are protecting the interests of retailers, and themselves. Would be kinda crappy if they released a killer CPU that completely obsoleted old stock, and left the stores holding that old stock...and against thier interests to buy back the old CPUs.

    Or they got a garbage CPU, and want to cover it up until the last moment possible. Meanwhile, myself and many others are playing with APUs in the meantime, and getting our DDR3 to 2500 MHz, something that was never before possible on AMD.

    And I am supposed to care about retailers. . . . I just want it to launch so perhaps a price war can start.

    I said nothing about you being a Fanboy just that you got a 470...
    It appears you're being thin-skined about it all.

    This is why you've only posted your opinion, and no facts. No big deal.


    Just realize, AMD does not exist to keep you happy. They exist to keep ME happy.:shadedshu

    I LOL'd nice editing

    It appears you can't let it go, you never explained what me owning a card has to do with AMD launch dates.:nutkick: :shadedshu

    I never claimed to post facts, it's forum that's what it's here for is to post opinions and talk with people of similar interests. But it seems some don't appreciate others have views that are not their own, no big deal.

    That's not what either Intel/AMD are looking to incite.

    Only out for self-centered manipulation, ok we it wasn't totally obvious at first.

    You take it the wrong way. People like to keep things here honest and truthful. It says right in the rules of the forum that F.U.D. is not allowed, so yes, if your opinion borders on FUD, people are going to speak up.

    Just because someone says something doesn't mean they don't appreciate the comment...you've provided the opportunity for reality to be exposed. Dual-edged sword, that. ;)

    They don't have to push that they're better (saying you're cheaper doesn't exactly draw a big audience). They have to push that they are 1) the little guy, 2) different, and 3) innovative. They could really, really be advertising the module design right now because it is something new and different. And they are advertising it, but through a medium that is completely ineffective.

    I kinda picture a scene out of 300, but with David and Goliath with it obvious who is who. David throws a stone, Goliath crumbles into rocks, and a bulldozer smashes through the pile taht used to be Goliath. Splash the AMD logo, cue deep announcer voice:

    "Sometimes, the little guy wins."
