    It's more that you took it personal. Rant and rave about whatever PRODUCT you like, leave people and their opinions out of it. you even stated you understand why people are posting that they don't particularily care..it's not that they don't care about Bulldozer, it's that people want PERFORMANCE metrics, so they can relate what they see to their own personal uses.

    We do have a verified AMD rep here, so I am fairly confident those opinions were stated so that AMD would see it. I mean, this event proly cost a pretty penny..potentially money that could ahve been spent better elsewhere.

    I think it's cool, but am very upset it didn't happen to coincide with launch. The fact it's ES, too, has me raise a few questions, as we know that early samples didn't exactly function correctly...nor will the same chips be out in the "wild".


    But, Guinness did verify it, it seems, so it's all good, just poorly executed. I've called myself ATI's #1 fanboy for years, and now, ATi no longer exists, but AMD does.


    In the end, as someone said, nearly every site is talking about htis, so it's as effective as AMD wanted it to be...we're talking MORE about Bulldozer!

    With all this "I want real world benchmarks so badly QQQQQQQQQQQQQQQQ"

    "QQQQQQQQQ"

    People are bashing because they dont have patience.

    Of all the processors AMD has released, do you think this processor is going to be an absolute fail.

    If you answer yes, im confused.

    I think bulldozer might just rip a new asshole beyond any of your speculations. Just because.

    "flame baby flame" "flame baby ffflllaaaammmeee"


    +1,000,000,000,000. And thats what my first flame post was for, because after reading the entire thread, that's what it was. Even quoted what sounded like blatant fact posting and hard headed flame bate.

    But hey Everybody's opinion counts (heavy heavy irony)

    I see your point, but everybody here has bitched about wanting performance numbers for a long time, myself included. How long is it going to take people to realize that we won't get any until AMD decides to give us some? And when will people quit crapping on threads with points we've all heard, and made, a million times?

    I dunno. I think some may be disappointed, no matter what happens. Me, I'm gonna buy regardless, and this "event" didn't affect that decision one bit.

    What I find really interesting is how people cannot just accept other's opinions without having to knock them as being wrong, when really, it's a bit foolish to think that way.

    Perhaps, if AMD actually confirmed a release date, people would stop being so impatient. there's nobody to blame here for that but AMD themselves, given the mixed messages they have been giving the last year or so.

    So, great, they can set a Guinness record, but not set a public release date?

    Am i impatient?

    YES!!! I wanted to be reviewing AM3+ boards, but refuse to do so with phenom-based chip, as I do not feel using such a chip will give an accurate representation of the AM3+ socket based on how my reviews are done.

    You all are asking me to review AM3+ boards...ain't gonna happen until bulldozer is out. I'm dealing with the impatience, too. ;)

    Again, people think this record is irrelevent because they know clock speed is irrelevent. Why hasn't that record been broken since the days of Netburst? Because no one has cared to do it, because performance records are important not clock speed records.

    If you want to break some records, do it on records that the world actually cares about. Break a PCMark record, break a SuperPi record, break a GFLOP record, break a 3DMark CPU score record. Break a record that actually matters.

    What scares me is that when Intel was behind, the started touting clock speed and breaking speed records. Now AMD is doing it, that is not a good sign for them IMO.

    Yeah but AMD has been behind for so long I dont think its the same thing. Intel was more a knee jerk reaction IMO. Could be wrong.

    Nobody gives a shit about SuperPi. I would like it to break some of those other records though.

    Lulz.. Nobody gives a hoot about ANY of those outside of benchers, which this place obviously has few people that understand what its about (information gathers via ad nauseum vomiting of 'fluff', and needs to be stable, and who cares it just broke a record that has stood on an architecture several years old). :p

    Can someone just restrict my access to the Classies and news please? (joke)

    SuperPi can be a good indicator of single threaded performance. Plus, it's simple and quick to use. WPrime? Okay, it is multi threaded, however the CPU with the better single thread performance will still come out on top.

    Its no more important than max clockspeed is if we are going to question the ability of these chips with no reason. AMD has never done well with superpi and would be a stupid benchmark to show any form of initial AMD performance. It hasn't been a useful program since netburst days. The only way to show a good performance review is to do a full review. This isn't this is a good job AMD for setting a new WR. Its a good PR push for this product release.

    All we have is some BD chip over clocked to insane speed . Great job . How about some real news about you crap now AMD !

    Can we lock this thread already ? We have had 7 pages of AMD trolls QQ'ing, and flaming people, for not having the same opinion as them.:nutkick:

    I have read some good posts, and some others where people just flame on AMD for doing something. Now we know something.

    1) We know it has higher IPC
    2) We know it has more cores.
    3) We know it clocks like a mother.


    Beyond all that there was flaming, accusing AMD of lying, accusing chew* of being a faker, and general asshattery.

    If you can't understand that a 8 core, with a 15-20% IPC improvement, and 1Ghz boost in speed compared to current offerings is a better deal for the majority of users than the Intel priced equivillant....... I dunno what to tell you, other than perhaps this isnt the thread you are looking for.

    Oh no don't get me wrong I can see all this and it is great . I just haven't seen any thing concrete as of yet . It may blow Intel away but this is all just pure speculation right now and I want more than that . I am getting nervous waiting for news to trickle out of AMD . It some times is just annoying .

    According to you

    1) saying meh is flaming
    2) being unimpressed is bashing
    3) pointing out there was no CPU-Z validation and saying your taking the 5ghz on air claim with no proof as hearsay is flaming and calling people a liar


    According to me you and many others can't accept others having a view that is not your own. Just let it go, and quit playing the victim.
