Show me a video, or some evidence of (much) higher clocked Llanos, and I'll agree they can be competitive as a gaming CPU in the desktop marketplace.
I never said they were gonna be competitive as gaming CPUs in desktops. I said they could be competitive as laptop APUs. You mentioned Intel chips being 3GHz+, but that's only in desktops. In laptops the clocks are lower.

Since I'll be good for a while (my ego, not my processor), I'll wait to see how much LGA2011 will cost, and then make a choice between SB 2011 or IB1155 K series...if I don't feel pressured to buy, I will hold off until Q4 2012 and get IB LGA 2011

Do you guys think the 1155 Ivy Bridge will have a K series?

Will socket 2011 have a K series? (If not, what's the point?)

You (and Domino) jumped into the middle of the conversation. That is not my fault, and no one is angry. This was what he said:

Implying that the Llano would be a competitive desktop gaming CPU. Read the conversation again

Doesn't matter. I gave you my opinions right off the bat, so why you reply in such a manner is beyond me.

I would say Bulldozer and Llano are going to kill the low end Sandy Bridge market. The i3 2100 is sticking yourself into a street with a dead end on both sides. The only way to upgrade with decent benefit is to get the i5 2500k. Llano and Bulldozer will both be able to OC and will probably fill such low end markets nicely. I foresee a popular low-cost 4-core (2-module) Bulldozer as well as dual-core or quad-core AMD Llano processor winning the price-performance battle later this year.
i3 now, Ivy Bridge later... as long as you have the pre req.

Or am I missing something?

i3 2100 seems to be one of the better stuff for its price. I wouldn't mind getting an i3 and a mid-top range mobo that will support Ivy later.

An off topic comment, having you and your constant bickering comments around the boards really detracts from my overall OCN experience. There's a normal level of internet attitude, but yours is really out of control IMO. I sort of wish you just wouldn't log in anymore, since I have to skip every thread you post in since it's nothing about the topic and all about fighting on the internet.

Says the guy who's never made a useful post.

Pro tip: look at all the rep I've made in three months and look at the amount you have.

And it wasn't me that started fight, moron. I made a reply regarding Llano not really being suitable for desktop CPU performance and the guy started bashing me and putting words into my mouth. Be gone, troll.

That was my plan as well (for replacing an older C2D system), but I'm waiting to see what Bulldozer brings before I buy anything.

Looks like you were putting words into mine, actually. I was pointing out to xd that Llano wasn't suitable for a desktop gaming PC (which was your opinion, initially) then you come at me as if I am the one assuming it was a desktop CPU to begin with.

Whatever. It's either attitude, or a misunderstanding. You can take your pick.
