I want to see the price difference between the 2. If it is significant, I'll be going Sabretooth. I just wish it had UEFI.

I've already decided that I'll be going Asus for Bulldozer.

I couldn't agree more man, I think this is the best looking board I've ever seen.

I want the customization of it. With my current board, I can only adjust voltages by .25 increments, and there are no half steppings in multipliers.

That and I can't get over how awesome the Sabretooth looks. :rockout:

The comparison couldn’t get any more even. Our P8Z68-V Pro sells for the same $210 Asus plans to ask for the Sabertooth 990FX, and the Core i5-2400 sells for $5 more than AMD’s Phenom II X4 980. With all other components equal, this is a true head-to-head.
It is just a comparison of SLI on Intel and AMD boards, but I thought the revelation of a $210 price point for Sabretooth was interesting.

I'm in.

The Phenom II 980BE with a 990X is quite close to a i5 2400.
However Tom's also said this;
"The bad news is that those Bulldozer-based chips are still not ready. Processors based on the B0 stepping are in the hands of motherboard manufacturers. But they’re all telling me that performance is nowhere near what they were expecting, and it’ll take another stepping to fix them."
Other reviewers saiy the same thing,but I think they're just reposting what Tom's hardware is saying. Until AMD can confirm it,they're just hating on BD.

I'll believe a delay when AMD says it themselves. I thought the B0 stepping was pre-release anyways.

I could be wrong but I thought I read that somewhere.

I'll google it and see what I can come up with.

Well that was pointless, it just lead me to a bunch of other forums and they couldn't agree whether it meant pre-release or unlocked.

Does anyone here know for sure?

I'm thinking the same thing.
Apparently there is also a stepping B1,which you could assume is the final release. Having 2 chips as a pre-release doesn't make sense,unless B0 is a engineering sample,B1 is the finished chip for testing purpose only.
They are too quick to assume that "BD has awful performance". A pre-release/Engineering Sample chip usually has leser performance,lower clocks, or some bugs.

That does make sense.

I guess it wouldn't really bother me too much if it was delayed though. I would get the Sabretooth soon and then just save for Bulldozer when it does launch.

The only thing I am impatient about is benchmarks, and I don't really play them anyway.

I'm liking the Sabertooth too,but I'm torn between it,the Asus TUF,and the Crosshair V.
I am kinda ticked off with Gigabyte since they offer no BIOS update from AM3+ support while Asus,MSI,etc. offer support on select motherboards. I do realize the older 8 series chipset may hinder performance,but I'd like to try it out before dropping cash on a new board and ram.
I agree with you there,I could care less about benchmarks. As long as it kicks butt I'm happy.

I really like the color scheme of the Sabretooth, so that's what made the decision for me. :D

I can't complain about the $210 price either.
