    well thats partly do to OS and the fact alot of reviewers are using ES chips given to them by Gigabyte, and some reviews are using Retail chips

    I'm sorry blaming the OS for piss poor performance is laughable as an explenation for failure.

    it is laughable

    but broken fucking ES chips that dont support full functionality on an OS that dosent properly support it can cause issues herp derp

    its kinda stacking the fail untill its ready to watch it fall

    i could care less eitherway i have an Intel rig

    but in games Windows 8 does offer a 4-20% performance improvement,

    and I5 systems see a 2-7% performance drop in those same things

    so at this point Bulldozer when tested vs Sandybridge could see a 6%-27% performance GAIN on sandybridge, but even then it still not enough to best the competition and its no where near close to being the answer to everyones prayers but it is interesting note to remember. Overall i dont care i trolled everyone in here for nearly 2 days giving false hope then i went back to the awesomeness of my Intel rig. and im an AMD fanboy honestly but eitherway.

    Bulldozer is fucked up in alot of ways

    i mean for christs sake Gigabyte demanded a tpu member here who does reviews test the Bulldozer chip on there 890FX board that has the black socket. and eventually he MUST test it. all the reviews using Gigabyte motherboards are using ES chips so keep that in mind as well, if you look closely, ES chips score around the same and the Retail chips score around the same but in many reviews the difference between ES and retail can be tiny or staggering.
