    Amd probably cant take the price of its highest part too high, no one would buy and the fact most people buy the next one down and Oc it probably has been noticed by Amd so might as well wring what they can eh, prices sound fairley reasonable to me :)

    The percentages must be "amounts of win" (would make sense) cause no way in hell that's going to be integer performance progression.

    Why not? Is it because AMD does not begin with an "I" and end with a "L".
    No really there was a reason why AMD is talking about Steamroller right now despite the fact Piledriver is next in line. They've figured out how to take this Bulldozer Design innovation and crank up the performance by far. Rumours of an insider already stated Steamroller is going to be 45% faster clock for clock than Bulldozer. I bet Excavator will add another 45% performance boost over Bulldozer clock for clock. Excavator will be according to AMD a complete Bulldozer re-design.

    Let me say, despite the fact Bulldozer did not perform as well as we would have liked, darn, people need to realize AMD's module approach is very risky but "Extremely" rewarding.

    Think about it?
    Today = 1 x Module = 2 x Cores.
    Tomorrow = 1 x Module = 4 x Cores.
    Near Future = 1 x Module = 6 x Cores.

    There's mathematics involved, and this will enable AMD to scale performance and increase cores at will with every manufacturing process. How about 1 Module has 8 Cores? It's coming

    Souds great! Now all we need is everybody at intel to take a vacation for the next 3 to 4 years. Amd biggest problem is timming. Given what I m reading about H Well.... All this sounds like amd is building a delorean

    but im getting a head of myself waiting for benches on release day......Honestly this is all fine and well....just keep putting out awesome sauce covered gpus and all will be well.

    AMD does have a timing issue, but that could be because of financing or lack of. Intel will always be on time, they do have a dump load more of $$$$$$$$$$$$.

    Thats the crazy part.....they are the best bang for the buck, but this formula requires volume to be viable.
    each, amd and intel have a segment their geared toward. The low to mid range stuff sells near 5to1 compared to high end. I see far more toyotas than mercedes. Intel and amd should be neck to neck.

    I believe they are, I mean AMD sold dump loads of Bulldozer's despite the fact they were selling for a higher price than they should.

    i guess they mean total, 8(L2) + 8(L3).. sometimes retailer method of mentioning specs can be surprising..

    not sure, sorry.. but they do have a record of posting new products for pre-order before launch.. happened with the 660Ti too if i remember right

    ----------------

    Xbitlabs seems to know the launch date for Vishera - Oct 23

    This is interesting and it sounds like Piledriver is running a lot better than 1st thought.
