Yes, but each module houses 2 cores.
No, not really.
Here is some more info.
Thanks for the article, I hadn't read that one before. It still said that there are 2 integer cores in a module though.
No, it said two integer threads and unlike two separate cores there is one floating point thread.
This is why I am very interested to see some real benchmarks.
I took this from the article.
yup but over time that keeps getting bumped down due to improoments ect
its good to see one at 300 and the price seems about right makes me want to wait to see there 500s first cause first chips always "go" so fast before they are discon or bumped down. Needa see more first.
I have been trying to say that in just about every one of these rumor threads. I feel like you definitely deserve a Thanks or 20 for being reasonable about this. Until I see some actual real world benchmarks, I refuse to believe any of these are a fantastic deal. Just because something is new and shiney doesn't mean it's instantly better by 1000-fold, there exists the very real possibility that AMD is withholding benchmarks as long as possible so people aren't thrown off by results\performance that is below the expectation of "zomg it's like an i7 mixed with a pentium 4 and forged by jesus for FREEEEE"
I really don't understand why you would post in the thread then.
I posted it to give people something to discuss in a "what if?" scenario. I did not post it as fact, and simply reading what I posted after the chart would tell you that.
If you don't like something, skip it and move along, there is absolutely no need to waste your time on something you obviously have no interest in.
I have plenty of interest in the Bulldozer lineup, but only on a serious and factual level. All of these sensationalist screen caps from random underground Chinese blogs really don't seem worth vesting too much credit or interest in. I hope the Bulldozer CPU's are awesome and drive both companies to keep producing better products, but the level of secrecy surrounding this particular product (so close to it's launch) really puts me off.
When having a serious discussion both sides of the argument should be presented. Yes, AMD could have a great cost-efficient product here, and I hope that is the case, but It should always be noted that the opposite is still very possible, until we see some hard evidence that proves otherwise.
I agree with everything that you said, but this thread wasn't intended to be taken too seriously.
With AMD being so quiet, we really don't have much to discuss other than rumors and, being a fan of AMD, rumors are better to discuss than nothing at all.
I too wish that all the secrets were unveiled and I can't wait until they are.
These prices are great if true. For now my system seems to have a little more life in it. I may wait for the Bulldozer rev 2 or something, though it depends on how much faster clock for clock Bulldozer is vs. Phenom II and Intel's chips...
