    I believe somebody already talked about the reason why AMD delayed the Bulldozer CPU. It has nothing to do with whether Bulldozer is completed or not, they've been already packaged and waiting for mass shipments and/or they've already been shipped. The only logical explination IMHO is they are trying to flush out current Phenom II's. I mean they are already selling for killer prices such as $145 and less. If AMD was to release the Bulldozer CPU's say tomorrow, they would be forced to further drop the prices of current PII's by as much as 50% IMO.

    Anyway here's two links with more information. Like always take this information with an organic grain of salt.... :D

    Please post in the Bulldozer information thread. More Bulldozer threads are NOT needed.
