    No way! It's AMD's sacred duty to send me free samples before anyone else, and without a shred of NDA to sign.

    The 2600k wins more than it loses all at stock, and it overclocks better to boot. Unless you exclusively use one of the programs that does better with 6 cores for some professional purpose, even a 6 core 1366 is a total waste. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/287?vs=142

    That DEFINITELY looks like a post from OBR :laugh:

    I'm actually surprised that none of the ES BD samples have hit Ebay like the ES Gulftown ones did.

    Very nice clocks speeds, though it means nothing if the chips aren't designed well. Still waiting for official word of performance from sites to come out. I have a feeling Sandy Bridge will still come out on top but Bulldozer will trail closely behind.

    Still gonna keep my 1055T for a while though, i'd rather do a video card upgrade.:)

    Ouch Amd if that's accurate.

    No wonder Intel pushed back IB and SB-E 3 months. It knew.....

    Man, reading OBR on AMD is like trying to get nVidia news from Charlie D.

    Yes, we need to get the UN involved. NATO too. Nothing cleans up a mess better than a nice task force. I just hope Intel just buys out AMD so we have one superior CPU. The New World Order of CPU's cometh. This is very important.
    _JP_, a_ump and Damn_Smooth say thanks.

    E,

    Could you imagine how amazing BD would be with Intel's engineering prowess? :laugh:

    I've been spending too much time on Google+, I was looking for the +1 button ...

    Seriously, though. I have doubts as to the accuracy of OBR's statements. I could see Oct for volume to appear, but I'd still be money on an actual release and benchies in August.

    Ugh. Too much weird stuff going on with this launch.

    Yeah, it wold be totally awesome. I can't wait until Intel has zero competition again. I loved paying a lot of money for horrible performance back in the day. God, that was awesome.

    OBR is full of shit, that's all I can say.

    IPC decreased? JF-AMD said that IPC is higher compared to Phenom II

    JF works for Amd. Do you really want to take every statement from him as absolute truth?

    Would you rather want me to take OBR's statements as truth?
    I don't see any reason why JF-AMD would lie about anything.

    You can gladly form your own opinions based on whatever you choose to believe.

    For myself tho.. Amd has been working on this processor for 2 years now and they still continue to delay and have issues getting it out. That's a major red flag to me. I'd love BD to succeed but it's just not looking like it's going to happen.

    This is a leaked internal road map after the Llano switch was announced, internally
    Notice that little small space between each CPU that is a month
    Llano June Launch with a June-July Release
    Zambezi July Launch with a July-August Release
    Server August Launch with a August-September Release

    It wasn't delayed because of issues

    45nm HKMG was no longer a viable fabrication process so they had to rewrite everything for 32nm HKMG and that took up to 1 year

    Bulldozer taped out last year same time July 2010
