    As does mine. I would be more interested in this chip if it were 28nm or 22nm.

    Ya, dumbtard persons who do not know what is up see AMD at 5GHz and Intel at 3.5GHz....... AMD wins by default. :banghead::banghead::banghead:


    AMD will ride this wave as long as they can.

    The real question I have is how much higher will it go and how much more power will it have to chomp down to do it if it can? Only time will tell.
    Norton and m1dg3t say thanks.

    The headroom should tell if it was binning or silicon improvements. I would think. :eek:

    I just want to see the overclocking ability. Oh... and the idle temps.

    Seeing they are binned chips, they would certainly do better that 8350's. how good? Each chip would most likely not be the same....

    Who cares how much power it uses. It is an enthusiast series chip they are not designed to be mainstream or low power. I am more curious about the actual release date and price. I have been patiently waiting to get an FX series chip and I feel like this will be my one.

    I sincerely for your sake then hope that they will also release them to consumers at some point, because as it stands now, they'll only be available to system builders (atleast initially)

    "Moreover, the chips will be available to system makers only, which suggests that they need more sophisticated cooling systems than typically utilized by end-users."

    and, let me guess. im most applications, a core i5 running at 4 GHz will easily destroy this thing, or in applications that actually use 8 cores, performance will be similar to the two. This is coming from someone who has benched his 4 GHZ 3570k with his friends fx-8350 that already hits 5 GHz. not all that impressed with this chip...

    Unless these things can hit 6 GHz on air cooling, I don't see the point over the 8350

    Yeah, except for the small matter of IBM having a 5 GHz CPU in the marketplace for over 5 years, AMD are No1.
    Time to shoot that particular lame horse Jorge. "As much as" is 1. a relative term (especially in light of performance-per-watt), and 2. When you have to hunt assiduously for benchmarks that show a product in a good light, its not a good sign.
    Even worse a sign is when AMD's own management come out with stuff like this:
    ...but not a lot once you take into account the write downs associated with Globalfoundries 32nm process. Not to mention 6+ years of R&D...and maybe Dirk Meyers severance package.
    Bulldozer as Opteron was obviously so good that AMD's server market share only started moving upwards when they started putting ARM into the enterprise sector (via SeaMicro)

    some people just don't know the first law of thermal dynamics.

    Does it involve two people in the same sleeping bag?

    ahem, the 8350 is pretty competitive with the 3770, and this is pile driver, not bulldozer.
    and synthetic benchmarks dont mean shit.
    newtekie1 and Kei say thanks.

    I don't care if the release it to system builders only simply means I have to order it out of Asia on ebay. Not exactly a big deal.
