Big Bang Conqueror
For once, I score the marketing department 10/10! I like it
LOL it sounds like a Pron movie
"Big Bang Conqueror"
so nice bro....
PGA still . . . ?
I know AMD preaches all about budget this and that, and compatibility, but they will need to dump PGA sooner or later, and I was really hoping they would do so this gen.
Currently in the process of switching from i7/X58 and over to Phenom II X6/880G, so i have no plans at all to get in on Bulldozer as it's to much for what i need.(mainly gaming).
Still can't wait to see the gaming and synthetic benchmark's for Bulldozer though.
Terminator, Dominator, Destroyer, etc., etc.
Bulldozer uses a modular architecture, it's going to scale to combat all markets.
I like it too, except for the graphics :shadedshu
Around April, I think....hope it's not April fool :lol:
And I remember the first Phenom CPUs expected to compete really well, but...hey we all know how that goes
Even if you plan to get bulldozer, you have to replace the mobo. It's AMD's new compatibility:
* New cpus can't be installed on old mobo (maybe it's because there's some feature which doesn't work on old chipset)
* old cpus can be installed on new mobo.
LOL AMD/MSI will be pissed ... we were not suppose to talk about this but but to say it was AM3 platform ...
They did compete. They just didn't overclock that great.
That's what I meant.
And with Intel limiting SB OC performance only on K-series (but K-series really did OC well and easily), maybe AMD will gaining some market on sub $200 cpus. And I'll be pissed if AMD follow Intel's step. Limiting OCability. It's just doesn't make sense.
That's not to bad then, cause then if i want to switch to a Bulldozer chip at some point i can still use my 1055T with the new chipset and later upgrade to a Bulldozer CPU at some point.
I hope not but Big Bang, Conqueror 2 or they do some thing even more lame and take some naming from ASUS like Big Bang, Conqueror Xtreme
Nice board just hope they have some thing else that looks good in a year or so .
I find myself wondering why you are doing that? my i7 920 @ ~4ghz is a decent whack more CPU than my x6 1090T @ 3.8ghz...
don't get me wrong I love the 1090T too, the whole platform is cheaper than X58 and gaming is the same experience, its just you have an X58 now...
X58 and i7's are to overboard for what i need (gaming being the main priority). It's a very rock solid platform, but it's really something not meant for what i like to do, sure, it excels in gaming immensely, but there is still a lot of untapped power that's being pushed behind because it's not being taken advantage of. There is no point in me keeping the Enzo Ferrari around if im just going to be driving it around the block every once in a while. That's why i figured i'd just sell it off and go with a different/cheaper platform this time around.
Plus... I like playing with new hardware. lol
According to hardwarecanucks.com "Since AM3+ boards are backwards compatible with AM3 CPUs, MSI is looking to launch the Conqueror far in advance of Bulldozer’s official availability."
So i could see many people with AM3 CPU's buying an AM3+ board before bulldozer is even out so they are ready for it's release.
I had thought about getting a new AM3 board and DDR3 ram to go with my current CPU many times before now so depending on the boards available i would consider getting an AM3+ board so i can pair my CPU with some DDR3 and assuming bulldozer does quite well i would grab one at a later date.
I tottaly agree with you. And the best thing is for somenone like me who has the 790FX chipset will get USB3 and sata3 connenctivity. And I don't think that bulldozer will perfom poor. In worst case I believe it will be slighty slower than sandy bridge but this has the possitive side better price for a very good cpu
Eh if the reports are right and this board will retail for about $275 I think it will bomb...
How can a board with an unproven Platform be seriously considered at such a high price.
Cheaper boards will comeout soon it doesn't worth 275 unless you are overclocking a lot or you use 3 or 4 graphic cards.
Now to see what the others bring to the table.
Oh I get other boards will be out and at a much better price I just don't get why MSI would expect any board to sell at a premium price point for something that is yet unproven and likely priced higher or as high as the top priced Bulldozer CPU that will be but is not yet out.
I bet this board will have MSRP of $279 but will start off selling at $189
I want to see PCI-E 3.0 on this thing + USB 3.0 on a chipset level as well. Cus Intel's Socket 2011 gonna have this for sure.
Exactly what i`m doing.
As soon as Asus makes a 990FX board Ill be all over it.
Makes two of us Mailman lol!
Asus ROG 990FX! That's what im talking about!
I just hope they incorporate the Lucid Hydra chip-set to run X-fire/SLI mode with out problems
I wouldn't mind running a couple 580's and/or 6990's for testing
