    It would be nice if some members here would just fold up and say f*** it in regards to posting useless posts in this thread.
    Heavy_MG and [H]@RD5TUFF say thanks.

    Yep, just marketing, and nothing in there worth getting excited over, IMHO. But thanks for the link.

    AMD comic?

    AMD battles the infamous Intel corporation,

    "Ruby, Intel are bring out the Sandybridge!"
    "Thuban, bring out the Bulldozer......it's 8 core FXin time...."

    Lol'd bout Dozer: if he punches you in a head you forget 4th grade; marketing gimmick, but still hillarious. Thanx for the laughs, dude.

    Ohh and the real reason why i came to this thread... It seems the 8150 will be right around 300.00 so newegg should have them for 299.99 or maybe 289.99

    And OBR has posted this on his blog

    Look at the text above the clock speed. As BeepBeep pointed out on XS, that clock speed is the HT clock, not the core clock.

    And why would anyone believe anything he posts from now on?

    I love how he is proud that he "punked them all" and then turns around and says believe me.

    :laugh: epic fail. what a tool.

    It says the 16 core (8 BD modules) Interlagos to be 35% faster than current 12 core Opterons.

    Just as i thought/hoped; but this "still not clear when they will be formally announced" stuff sounds like FUD, though. :laugh: Still hope those statements true, though shame there's no info how those Dozers perform. Will look up on Egg for those (FX-8150 & 8120) by August then.

    Shipping for any reason = more chance for leaks! And real numbers, and real specs, and glory!
    [H]@RD5TUFF says thanks.

    I think you guys are ignoring the fact that unlike intel who presents 8 fake cores and one real core with the HT scheme. bulldozer will have on decoder feeding 2 cores. Traditionally the decoder is really exspensive in terms of die space, so making 1 super powerful decoder " when most are underutilized" and giving it to INt units is likely to beat out the in HT design.

    think about it, plus they get to streamline the pipeline

    I think IPC will actually be higher then many predict as they have a real core hyperthreading model.

    We shall see however.

    Nah, I'm still going with Intel will be faster per core per clock.

    Seeing that major mainboards manufacturers (ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte, etc...), post the vids of their boards even on YouTube (lineup of M5A97X-EVO, M5A99X-EVO, Sabertooth 990FX & ROG C5F, saw the vid today) makes me beleive that Dozer will, hopefully, be able to give atleast some kick in a gut to this oversized Intel's SB/IB Godzilla; it just gotta be atleast that good. My mainboard of choise for real this time? Sabertooth 990FX; AI Suite II's Thermal Radar, TurboV EVO & the mobo's UEFI BIOS look just great (gotta see though if Thermal Radar is better than SpeedFan in temp monitoring & such), Military Design looks more then just impressive, plus one won't build mainboard like that for looks alone; hope they'll come by the end of August/beginning of September with those rev. C0 CPUs. You just can't give up on waiting for this CPU (FX-8120 rev. C0 125 or - even better - 95W TDP in my case) after seeing that kind of vids. Typed in YouTube's search field "Sabertooth 990FX reviews" got 10 or so vids reviewing & benchmarking the afformentioned board. Plus Sabertooth was for Intel CPUs only & after they moved to AMD CPUs as well - that indicates something atleast quite interesting; just my 2 cents, though. :) :toast:
