    I don't know you should ask him on twitter :D

    I don't see why would he lie about it.

    I don't even understand why people still bother with this thread.

    Some of us like to speculate and discuss about potential performance, if you don't like it you don't have to read it you know.

    I'm not insinuating he is lying...I'm insinuating that he is talking about performance under the pretense of NOT doing so. Read between the lines, my man, read between the lines.;)

    Is it not that obvious?:shadedshu

    All I see is people saying the same things over and over again mixing it up with speculations and theories. The last couple of pages pretty much proves my point imo. :p

    I am kinda interested, but it's boring to read everything again and again with no new points being made and people not taking a hint and then spam until lockdown. Because it's what the thread is now. And I'm contributing to the last part.

    But then again cows digest the food several times and it's good for them so maybe something productive will come out of this? Carry on, men. :toast:

    I personally think a lot of info can be gleaned from people talking about BD still. All of the opinions offered here by all the members are valuable to me.

    Plus, anyone that mentions performance, at this point, I'm adding to my "Questionable Reputation" list.

    I may be a reviewer, but I have ZERO access to any info that is not in the public domain, and I don't sign NDAs. I've been getting boards shortly before retail release, but I am NOT getting products while still in BETA; I'm getting products from batches that everyone else will get form their favorite retailer.

    Of course, I'm very curious about these CPUs, as I'll be spending a large amount of time doing reviews with them, so any info I can get will help me bring you guys real, accurate reviews. With my access to non-public info really limited, when I do a review, I don't have much help, and when I run into issues wit ha product, I'm on my own trying to find a fix more often than not.

    I need all te hBD info I can get, and liek you said, reguritation can be useful. Sometimes you can spit out the crap you don't want to eat.

    is there something i'm missing?
    B2.G performs better than whatever recent benchmark was leaked.. thats all that can be inferred by Anand's statements.. well also that there may be another stepping b4 launch. but it's not much to go on. it might even have been, an unintentional slip.
    (not attacking you just disagreeing on your interpritation)

    anyway have i missed some recently leaked perf benchies? please link me up if i have.
    (yes i know they probably mean squat but i'd still like to see...)

    That performance based on various leaks of non-Representative benchmarks has lead me to make me say

    Bulldozer for my workloads are 2.5~ times better than my Phenom II

    And if the application I use uses the IMAC(Pipe 0?)

    [​IMG]

    Then performance only goes up when it becomes Representative 2.55-2.75~ times is my expectation

    Then you have to understand with a new motherboard the one I plan to buy I expect to get 4.5GHz-4.8GHz with an H80/H100 thus increasing the performance more

    Well based on that, MY prediction is that performance is going to be close to 2600K.

    Yeah! 4 cores vs 8 cores CPU if Bulldozer loose or equal performance of the 2600k than i said it fail... an 8 cores Bulldozer should at least be 35-40% faster then Intel 2600k 4 cores IMO

    & no HT doesn't mean squat!... it is still a 4 cores CPU

    Why are you looking at the number of core, look at the price/performance.

    Also I found and interesting post on XS by xsecret:

    why does it matter

    the number of cores doesn't matter, the performance does, if it is a 4 core then it will have high single threaded performance, if it is an 8 core it will have high multithreaded

    if it's somewhere in the middle the best thing to do would be to look at the performance and then decide what your going to call it

    This late in the game, Intel has already made a significant profit off the SB Line-up, and could easily price match AMD when the SB-E CPU's come out.
