    I want to see 24/7 clocks on air and water then benches to show performance against intel.

    Couldn't agree more. I am not an overclocker so I don't really understand that market. As a matter of fact, why should we even bother to compare it to an i7 980 or 990? Nobody really buys those parts either.

    I would love a mainstream shoot out that compares what people really buy in ways that people actual use them. But then people would call me crazy.

    I dunno, I know at least some people will listen.


    Heck, my ASUS M5A board reviews are the perfect example. I told ASUS to give me what would be the highest seller, not the top dog. They sent me two. Guess which reviews of mine are the most popular? ;)

    I'm sorry I'm likely gonna miss the launch.

    I like to call it reality. The difference between 190fps vs 140fps is still OVER 100 FPS! I've been done with the whole this processor vs that processor debate for some time now. Just give me a good quick STABLE chip at a good price.

    :laugh: Well I know that, but that 100 more thing is confusing me. But then again it's TheMailMan78 so everything is confusing :D

    I guess the NDA will end in 1-2weeks from now & we will finally see some bencharks on how it's perform... maybe?

    The CPU bottleneck. You know the one between Intel and AMD? Yeah I went with the cheaper CPU because both brands were getting way more the my monitor could display.

    what you mean actually testing similarly priced products in usage scenarios that consist of web browsing, audio/video encoding, gaming and other common tasks individually and then combined all at the same time (because maybe i want to encode something and play a game and maybe check TPU all at the same time). Not wasting time testing super pi, vantage, all other benchmark programs.
    maybe even do a stock clocks comparison + OC'd to 4Ghz + max OC just for the hell of it.
    yeah your crazy :p
    i would really love to see a i5 2500k and Fx 8120 compared in this way.

    Your right the Intel EE sku (980X/990X etc.) are for the most part cost prohibitive... good mainstream performance and good overclockability is the sweet spot. Now if BD can just be competive with Intel's 2500K/2600K? I'm looking forward to more info being released in the days ahead!

    Means who cares if its 190fps or 140fps, its still running over 100 fps. Well thats how i understood it.

    Eh, my brain was stuck in a loop there.

    I was in the same situation last year, I honestly don't care about brand so I went what was cheaper but still offered nice performance and a lot of features for the price.

    That's what i believe the majority wants, and why the recent overclocking record is a moot point for me.

    I'm waiting for real world applications to come into the light for BD cause only then will that give me a good sense of where the chips stand. Every is generally about the bottom line which is performance, tolerance toward higher volts and overclocks is great though, just not what i'm eager to see.

    My CPU is actually overkill for me so it's no need for it. I AM waiting for reviews though. :)

    Interesting info there over at XS in the context of the 8.5 GHz clock, and it's also worth noting:

    That's more good news.

    Just because I really REALLY don't want to go through 14 pages of useless posts...

    What FACTS are there about Bulldozer?
