    I get the feeling it's going to be lower

    Athlon II X4 635 = $100(Old)
    ATi 5570 = $50(Old)

    Llano with the same specs or better specs: $140 while brand spanking new

    If we follow the same price scheme

    2 x Phenom II X4 955 BE = $240
    2 x Phenom II X4 980 BE = $380
    is the range

    $240-$380 is a big range

    It's going to be purely based on how well it is going to perform in relation to the 2500k/2600k....that and if there's a significant amount of demand or lack thereof.

    All depends on how it perform's. If it perform's as OBR says the 8 core wll be around the same price as the 2500K

    I dun know I have a hunch the top of the line will be the better part of $400.

    If I told you guys a 16-core Interlagos has a higher clock speed to that of a 6180 SE 12 core Opteron?
    http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Opteron 6180 SE - OS6180YETCEGO.html

    Would you believe me?

    So, seeing that 8100s Clock Speed is complete BULLDOODOO
    (Whole chart is bulldoo doo)

    The Bulldozer architecture is refereed to being a Speed Demon Architecture

    High Clocks/Low Latency

    Aye, I like the same. But I add a reason to go AMD is also because general cost of other things is less too. Boards themselves I've noticed are cheaper. When I did a build comparison for a friend...going Intel raised the price by $300 at least. That is counting Intel premium on the CPU and also the cost of the board. For the performance he needed, Phenom II was plenty and saved $300.

    When I think of it for mine. What would I rather have...better CPU or save money and get better GPU? I pick GPU. AMD keeping to the same sockets longer then means I can upgrade later on the CPU. Overall life of the system extends a couple years before I absolutely have to change all the parts out.

    Heck, current build is from 06 and I don't forsee a full part out for another year at least. Probably will once the next gen consoles launch.

    Netburst was a speed demon too. When they designed it (and for quite some time after that) Intel thought it would eventually hit 10 Ghz with new processes, and according to the roadmap it should have reached 5Ghz+ by the time it was phased out. Well that was the plan. Instead, reality hit them hard.

    You should really stop believing every PR paper or statement you come across and looking at what happens around you.

    Oh well, time will reveal everyhing, whatever it is.

    Bulldozer isn't Netburst
    Bulldozer doesn't have the outrageous goal of going beyond 10GHz or 5GHz
    It only needs to be 3.5+GHz which is rather a lot easier now than in the past

    Time always reveals everything

    Well, IMO, time is being such a troll, regarding to this.

    Well we can't base Zambezi's performance on OBR's Benchmarks ever or those tricked by OBR ;)

    Like anyone would do that to begin with, lol

    Coming from the Intel Evangelist himself OBR

    Once a Liar always a Liar

    Time is a troll

    Don't trust anything, lol :toast: until it's released

    The only word so far is

    That the clock rates will be "acceptable"<-- E3 and it will outperform the older generation<-- A given
    :toast:

    What part of APU orders sucking the fabs dry do you not understand ?

    I'm much more interested in Valencia now...
    I didn't know socket C32 was going to be bulldozer-ready as the G34
    dual socket C32 mobos are so cheap that I would like to build a full workstation with 6 or 8 cores per socket. I could still do this with actual 6 core (deneb-like) opterons, those are relatively cheap too.

    The point is....

    The Fabs aren't sucked dry

    At overclock.net I found all of the notable quotes from JF-AMD

    Since JF-AMD doesn't come here well :(

    This is all the quotes on the overclock.net there is more at toms Hardware, AMDZone, HardOCP and other places

    Only AMD knows and the only one talking about Bulldozer is this guy JF-AMD

    Bah, didn't grep anything of importance from that. Only want to know when I can buy one.

    When you get to buy one

    Very Soon <----> Soon <----> Don't hold your breath

    Q3 unless a delay which is highly unlikely

    That's about as precise as Pi to only 3 decimal places! ;)

    Well we are in Q3 right now

    2H = Q3 and Q4

    Q3 = July, August, September

    We are half way through July, and you only have two months and 1 half-month left before Q4

    AMD has told us we will receive this in Q3 which is from a span from now to Q4

    is 11 Weeks that is 77 days, 55 days for business

    That didn't help narrow down the possibilities, it's still only as precise as it has been - "Q3".

    How does one induce a coma? Need to wait it out until BD hits.

    1. Doesn't show what kind of cooling it has. Could be air like he says.. Could be LN2.
    2. Overclocking in windows? Are you kidding me?
    3. It's unstable as shit. Notice when he starts up the computer windows is asking him if he wants to boot into safe mode? Why is that. Because it's crashing
    4. 2 core overclocking? Who cares

    Not for quite a while. I don't blame him either, many of the threads that he posted in were filled with immaturity, "grain of salt" posts and FUD from other websites. I would stay away as well.
     
    Zubasa, TheMailMan78 and AsRock say thanks.
