    All benchmarks that show up before launch will not be representative of actual performance.

    Period.

    And, I don't believe the Gigabyte data is completely accurate.

    It's just sad that no matter how many forums you visit, and how many times you say it, there will still be a million people that refuse to listen.

    We love you JF-AMD. Mainly because you put most of our feelings at ease. I've been so tired of hearing all of this speculation and seeing all these useless projected performance charts...yes I'm looking at you seronx.
    Speculating isn't a bad thing, but it usually gets out of hand here because people don't have anything else better to talk about. So what do they do, they start yet another Bulldozer thread to see who else will throw their 2 cents in.
    THANK YOU JF-AMD!!

    Ok, the majority of his posts is just fud. Case and point, I will point out a few that are just complete nonesense and based on NOTHING concrete.

    Post #5
    Post #11


    My point is that when things like these are posted, no matter who it's from, are all baseless claims and/or an opinion. There is no concrete evidence to prove that these are facts, and no sources either.

    OS means its a Retail Sample
    ZS means its a Engineer Sample

    1130 supposedly means -> 30th Week of 2011

    For $1000~(Only buy from official venders you hear ;D)

    It will sell like hotcakes

    As the competing server CPU from intel is $3000-$6000

    Not so sure about this one but my understanding is "Bulldozer" has been winning a lot of Linux based application benchmarks, and only on the Windows side does it show "Bulldozer" performing badly

    G34, C32 and AM3+ all support Bulldozer with a BIOS chip update

    and certain AM3 chips can support Bulldozer but to how much is to be validated

    Zambezi is so hard to type these days

    This is what I love to call the magic of illusion. Or propaganda or what ever bias we run into day to day. You hit the nail on the head.

    I would give the info I saw on Tom's hardware about gigabytes information as about as accurate as you'll find. They are not giving any performance data, or have anything to gain or loose.
    Just numbers that have to do with their products compatibility. No more, no less. I can't see why this should cause any problems other than problems people create for themselves of for the same of making noise... If true it's deplorable.
    The release date is close and motherboard mfg's have been in closer contact with AMD and have had this kind of information for a while now. To design the FX compatible motherboard/chipset so if it was released by Gigabyte or if it was ASUS or MSI. there is absolutely no reason to doubt the information.
    Tom's hardware usually is pretty good about confirmation before printing but as I don't work there I can only go by experience with their data which is usually fairly accurate in this kind of stuff.

    OS does not mean retail sample.

    If 1130 is referring to a date then it is pointing to a date in mid july.

    I am 99% sure that this is not a real processor. Please buy one from him and let me know.

    The only problem I can see with the Gigabyte chart is time. I believe they are on the F5 bios already so this could be an older chart. I don't believe at all that it was ever made to spread disinformation though.

    Yes.
    The same way the desktop team has no idea what's going on with the server department.
