    so vishera is gonna be a little bit better than bulldozer but the real improvements are gonna be steamroller

    i would say BD = 100% PD = 110-115% and SR = 135-45%

    Obviously a lot of this is based on what AMD has revealed to date. They are continuing to keep Steamroller very quiet, with releasing minor details. Piledriver in the other hand is different, AMD is keeping it tight lipped. So October 2012 is going to be Piledriver month :D

    Ok SuperXP, we Know Piledriver is to replace Bulldozer. Steam Roller to Replace Piledriver.

    Piledriver is a stop gap.

    I Just want to see gaming, everyday apps, encoding/CAD numbers. From End Users/Testers here/tomshardware/techspot/hardwareanalysis. Not Sources like Fudzilla, theenquier, reuters, ATInsider, or even leaks from AMD itself. I dont think this machine here will get a upgrade till Steamroller if it even supports this motherboard (970 Extreme 4)

    Yes, got some Irish stuff, though I prefer Greek Metaxa and Ouzo., Just keep water near by, that Metaxa is smooth, but burns as it goes down :D

    Note that I did not threw any speculation on the performance of PD. Why?
    Let's say it this way:

    When PD comes out, I am going to get one. Then I am going to run variety of benchmarks on both BD and PD running on the same clocks, to see what/if there is a IPC improvement & how well PD scales compared to BD.
    I won't speak about it's performance until I do that, or at the very least, till someone does that for me. Because otherwise it would just be wild guessing.

    Why am I saying this? Trying to tell You to stop guessing. Please don't say that PD is going to be crap. And please don't say it is going to be real good. At least hold that till it comes out, 'kay? ;)

    EDIT: I burned my breakfast 'cause of writing this :roll:

    Two comparisons, one at identified clocks and one both at stock. For price/performance. :D
    Like I said before if performance is good over the current BD, then I'm in. Reason, now I think Steamroller may not be on AM3+. But who knows.

    Steamroller and Excavator will have a different nomenclature.
    Bulldozer/Piledriver: 8 total cores per monolithic die (Orochi)
    new nomenclature -v
    Steamroller/Excavator: 10 total cores per monolithic die (Viperfish)
    new nomenclature -v
    Etc.: 12 total cores per monolithic die

    Bulldozer: 80% - 85%
    Piledriver: 100%
    Steamroller: 125% - 130%
    Excavator: 140% - 145%

    Speculate your behind off...

    Oh man... please don't let Steamroller suck... I hate monopoly, hell, duopoly isn't "great" either (as well as forced "competition"), nothing about the state or shape of society around me is "great", but at least it would be bearable, since technology is one of the few remaining things I'm still passionate about these days...

    I really have no idea why you keep quoting me. I was speaking about sockets, not RAM. While RAM can have a factor in a socket it is not what I was referring to.

    People who think performance alone is going to save AMD are deluded.

    Whether Steamroller sucks or not, there will still be a monopoly with a corporation the size of Intel around. The only way we can see a level playing field as far as market share is if AMD drastically gains support via a more lucrative marketing campaign or if they continue to diversify their strangle hold in the mobile & server arena and bully Intel out.

    It was the same way back during A64 and at that time AMD was literally tearing them a new asshole, just that intel had so much control that they were trying to use underhanded techniques with retailers/etailers and OEMs, despite their CPU being a Dog that Even the P3 was beating.
