    I have an alert set on Google Alerts (beta) for a couple of things with bulldozer in the search string. I have the "only the best" option selected. I haven't seen anything interesting recently. I guess the last big news was about the earlier-than-expected release of the BD Opterons. Sorry.

    Bulldozer needs to come out already so I can envy something else I can't afford.

    Well, we can speculate that the price is ~$300 because AMD is giving away some BD's in a contest and the value is listed at $300. We do know that is an FX, but not what one. $300 is a little pricey for me also, but it is not unearthly high like some people feared.

    The contest ends the 6th of next month, so I would say that it will release next month, but when is not for certain, and why aren't any reviews out?

    well technically it is the or is one of the best AMD processors to date. but that is true for every new generation. there is nothing wrong with these CPU's, they work perfectly for what they are meant for. if you are using it for something other than what it was built for then that is all on you for not doing your research. these are AMAZING at CAD, truly can't be beat right now
    _JP_ and Norton say thanks.

    Pentium 4 worst possessor ever!! :shadedshu

    Like others have said the AMD Bulldozer in certain areas can not be matched, but it is limited. I myself wasn't happy when it was released as i wanted to upgrade to it, but it would of been more of a side grade for me, now im waiting on Piledriver, this i hope will give me a good boost in performance.

    Hey, later on it was quite fast. And hot, and expensive. The first ones were .. well slow, hot and power hungry.
