Good to hear AMD getting more involved with the game devs. They have been seriously lacking in that arena.

And dammit AMD, I want performance numbers, not crappy press releases.

The FX brand is associated with AMD's fastest processors and most powerful platforms
Hmmm, well f**k me sideways.

they didnt hesitate to put the can on the FX line after the skt 939. there was a small selection of FX chips made after the 939 era but they were mainly only for server/industry applications all back in 2006. I even remember reading the press release when they announced that they were dropping the 'FX' name.

The last time FX was used, AMD was bitch slapping Intel. Maybe the same holds true today and that's why they resurrected the name? If so, expect FX chips to have the same price tag they did then too--$500+ a pop. That sucks for overclockers though because you gotta spend big bucks to get unlocked multipliers again.

Prices have already been leaked afaik and the dearest CPU is like 320 dollars... I'm a big fan of AMD but highly doubt this can go toe to toe with Ivy, let alone Sandy! :ohwell:

core for core clock for clock is what I want to know. gamers dont need more than a quad core at the moment. 8 cores will be nye on useless unless they have seriously beefed the performance clock for clock.

Don't see how you fixed it. I was implying that the Bulldozer is coming out at around the same time as Ivy and I doubt it can compete with it OR compete with Intel's latest offering.

Bulldozer is out right now but it isn't going to be sold till OEMs/Partners start buying

Haha, yeah. I'm not doubting these chips will be awesome, just saying Intel will still have the upper hand...

I'm actually an AMD fan, Have had AMD systems for the past five-six years.

Also my overclocked X6 and 5850 smashes out Dirt 3 just fine! ;)

If they can just release the FX cpus this year they will have a 2 year lead in performance till Haswell and even then it might not be able to handle 22nm BD NG

Hate how the OEMs chose Llano to be the first to release

Yea i agree, i cant see AMD bringing back the FX branding if these are slower then Sandy Bridge, just wouldn't make sense to me and it would make AMD look stupid. When i look at benchmarks of the 2600k and AMD's top CPU there isnt that much difference in performance realy(Granted Sandy wins all), but most are close, and a few the 2600k flies in but realy its not to far out of reach that i think these new Bulldozer CPU's will indeed perform better then Sandy, if not then ill be surprised TBH.

But not long now till we know the answer :toast:

Battlefield 3 and BC2 can use more than 8 cores

:slap:

Get with the times we need more cores more than ever

:nutkick:
thats 2 games man, hardly worth a nutkick, not to mention BC2 flies on a quad core. also check some benchmarks and you'll see that the game runs faster on a 2500K than it does a X6 1100T. (4 cores vs 6 cores both at 3.3ghz)

http://techreport.com/articles.x/20188/7

...the lowly Core i5-2400 is outdoing much more expensive siblings such as the Core i7-875K...the very fastest Phenom II X6 isn't any faster than the Core i3-2100—and the i3-2100 has a higher minimum FPS.
clock for clock matters a hec of a lot man.

im not saying more cores is a bad thing, but at present I'd much prefer a CPU that has better per core performance, this generally equates to a smoother experience. 4 cores is plenty for another year at least IMO.

I can sum it pretty up quickly

2008(core i7,i5,i3, 2nd gen) vs 2003(k8-k10.5)

We can only wait till we see

2008(i7) vs 2009(BD)

I'm not sure what you are arguing against... I love more cores as much as the next man... but the point I want to make is that I sincerely hope performance per core is up by a lot (lets say 25%+) compared to current PII's.

Bulldozer is out right now but it isn't going to be sold till OEMs/Partners start buying
Hate how the OEMs chose Llano to be the first to release
What are you talking about? :confused: The Zambezi processor, what most of us refer to as the true Bulldozer has NOT been released, hell we can't even get official benchmark numbers yet. And what makes you think the OEM chose to have Llano out first? I am pretty sure that was an in house AMD decision because Zambezi wasn't quite ready yet. Hell, there are rumors of delays in the Zambezi launch now...

I'm not sure what you are arguing against... I love more cores as much as the next man... but the point I want to make is that I sincerely hope performance per core is up by a lot (lets say 25%+) compared to current PII's.
well saying phenom II x4 does 75 gips

and then saying FX-4K does 200-400 gips isn't enough for you?

Official benchmarks are NDA till the consumer launch date and that launch date is the launch date

Zambezi is ready and has been since March-April, if there was any delays it would have affected Llano as well but it seems Llano is going to release early and because of Llanos unexpected performance the launch of Zambezi is getting pushed back so they can maximize profits from Llano

Adding cores doesn't benefit the most of us. Quad-cores will do just fine there. What I wish is that Bulldozer increases the "clock to clock" performance. E.g. a quad-core Bulldozer at 3.2 GHz would beat a Phenom II quad-core at 3.2 GHz by 30%.

heresay for the time being, not to mention if that doesnt equate to gaming performance then it matters little to me anyway.

this. show me the benchmarks, then I'll believe what they say.
