Exactly why im not upgrading, you said it there

Yeah. Intel must know something about Bulldozer to release such good performing chips for so cheap. They're going to release 6 cores non extreme edition in Q2? Q3?. Today though, AMD doesn't have anything that can compete with the i5 2500K @ the $200 price point. Most consumers don't overclock though, so most of their customers will still buy CPUs based on stock speed comparisons.

Either they know something about Bulldozer or it's just another amazing CPU release like the i7 920 was. There wasn't anything even remotely competitive to it when it was released over 2 years ago being able to OC to 4.2Ghz quite easily. Especially for such a cheap price introduction as well.

AMD has a lot of confidence in Bulldozer, Intel is probably just basing off that.

Do I think it wil be an issue . . . in the future yes. Would people boycotting Sandy Bridge because of hardware DRM that won't affect 99.999% of users really change that future . . . no.

Accepting a tiny bit of DRM now would do no damage in the short term, but then Intel does ia tiny bit more in 2 CPU generations time as we're used to their current form of DRM and have forgotten it, move forward 20 years and we've got full DRM from the CPUs.

You have to love the price to performance ratio. I think people are blowing the DRM thing a bit out of proportion.

MSI boards have enough, for Sandy bridge (AMD is a different story), much less VRMs are needed.

you can get high overclocks on 3-4 phases
