    dunno, if it's on par performance wise with the 2600k and costs $266 @ the egg, with a new customer promo that makes this a sub $250 chip. :toast:

    No one really knows yet, it's all speculation. That being said I'd say stick with your 1090 until the C0/C1 stepping is released in Q1 and then maybe make the jump. The reason being is from my understanding the socket will be changing for amd after the second round of bulldozer.

    Does anyone know how to gauge an items worth/ performance without, a comparison to similar items or the top dog at the moment?

    With the 22nm SB-E UEFI situation and the scheduled BD socket change I think I'll hold on my current rig a little more than anticipated, at least until the dust settles a little. :ohwell:

    I suspect that for the 3rd Gen Bulldozer, Im believing it will support dual/quad channel DDR3/4 and PCI E Gen 3 ports

    I'm thinking the same thing. I think I can hold out for up to 1 more year without upgrading yet, wait till BD goes through a few more socket changes. Or, if Intel continues to surprise with its IB and SB-E, I might have to keep way of the Intel then. Whoever has the best performance at a reasonable price will get my money.

    I think DDR4 is still a little ways away from us. But I'm sure after another 6-12 months, PCIE 3.0 will slowly take over and 2.0 will be the way of the dinosaurs.
    Is it Intel's IB or SB-E that is going to have quad-channel memory support? If this is a performance advantage to having access to more memory bandwidth, is AMD going to travel that route? Triple channel? Quad channel? Sometime in the near future? Or just keep their dual channel configuration forever?

    I really suspect that AMD will quad channel their memory, i mean its about how the motherboard is, not the memory modules, aslong as they are the same rating between each stick you can buy a dual channel set n then buy another aslong as the specs are the same

    Can i just ask real quick where you guys are getting your bulldozer information? ? i dont mean that accusationally at all i am just very curious about the tech and planning to adopt to it soon after release.
    What websites are you using for good amd source or even forums with heavy bulldozer discussion...

    Thanka for any guidance! Also when can we expect to hear more from amd about anything zembezi related? Any press confrences or anything coming up?

    Porbably not Bulldozer, so not for this thread, eh? :laugh: ;)

    BTW, I have no idea what's going on, but the IDF thing, yeah, weird.

    Yeah, I guess you have a point there. I just think it would be cool if AMD showed up with Bulldozer on Intel's doorstep. That would make a pretty big statement.

    For those wanting to upgrade, Ensure to have a 900 Series AMD Chipset or 800 Series chipset with the black Socket, normally rev 2 or 3 sockets. AM3+ is backwards compatible with DDR3 Based Phenom CPUs n supports 1st gen Bulldozer, n possibly 2nd Gen if they keep AM3+ around long enough.

    "We're getting settled in for #IDF2011 & can't contain our excitement! We've got news that will knock you off your feet. #AMD"

    :wtf: Havok for APP?

    seems all intel/nv fanboys always try to dump on any AMD threads, we seriously need a thumbs up/thumbs down button.

    Got my board for about €60. :D

    Don't really see what you're talking about here, that stuff comes from AMD's twitter account.

    huh? Where did that come from? :wtf:




    Well, what could AMD announce at IDF? I'm betting APP support for Havok.
