    wow, can you imagine up to 1Ghz + oc with turbo boost on air with standard cooler.

    btw the lowest turbo boost when all core is active is 500 mhz
    AlienIsGOD and Jack Doph say thanks.

    That is so wrong I don't even know where to start. You will be able to overclock all you want.

    Sounds pretty good to me. I'm interested to see Bulldozer in action on the client side!

    So, there will be a way to disable this TDP limitation?

    its going to be the same as intels turbo in that regard, even if AMD dont officially support it, mobo manufacturers will find a way to give us all the fine tuning we want.

    I'm a huge fan of Turbo technology such as AMD's implementation with multi core CPU's, and it is very interesting to read about the differences between client and server variants.

    this is just the thing that 4+ core CPU's need to deliver in applications that use a low core count, and makes a whole lot of sense in both the client/server scenario's to make sure that you not only get the most performance from your CPU, but the best value for the power that is being consumed.
