I guess you'd have to define what a "fail" is.

In the past its been per core performance, bulldozer isn't meant to excel in that area its about getting more cores in the same die space.

Will be good for my folding hopefully.

I don't really care about single threaded speed. I just hope they prove to be some great folding cpu's.

I'd like to see AMD come out on top again, it seems like it's been forever.

I went with Intel for the first time in I think 15 years ? My last Intel was a Pentium 4 if I remember right. Never sided with either/or, but right now, Sandy Bridge is great for the price/performance imo.

if bulldozer doesnt even atleast match sandybridge in all benchmarks then I will cry..

If it matches SB, which is very possible, the pricing point would have to be in line with the X6 to even stand a chance. Let's face it, With current SB pricing being pretty much in line with the X6, If BD comes out at lets say $300-$350, it would really have to out perform the SB for most people to even consider it. Regardless if you are AMD or Intel, its all about getting the best bang for the buck. At least that's my take on it anyway.

if it matches SB and is cheaper (i assume it will be since its AMD) ill be happy, if it fails like phenom did then i wont cry about it but ill be disappointed with AMD and slowly switch to intel (going to have to save some big bucks for ivy bridge)

I think Bulldozer will be somewhere between LGA 1366 and LGA 1155 performance.

For AMD to surpass Intel, it would have to be a big jump in performance, similar to that of the Pentium 4 to Core 2 architecture, which was in most cases close to, and in some above 50%.

However, and unfortunately, I don't think AMD has the R&D money to come up with something like that.

It will be good enough if surpasses the Nehalem generation, but I'm not holding my breath about it beating Sandy Bridge.
