[SA] Bulldozer delayed and not delayed - Page 4

post #31 of 34
Regardless of whats coming out first it's good to hear that there wasn't a technical issue with CPU design in question.

If that was true.

If the server chips are on time then there cant be a technical issue considering that the consumer chip is basically a derivative of. Or if there is it can't be to too detrimental.

But I do have to say that it could of been handled better.

It certainly is. You are dead on.
Clock Speed means so little today, in fact the entire reason why CPUs have slowed down in clock speed increases is because of the "Memory Wall", where the CPU has far exceeded the performance of the bandwidth of the RAM to the CPU...

Have you ever noticed when you use 1600 RAM vs 1333 RAM you definitely feel the speed increase? I think essentially what AMD will be winning with here is the 1866 RAM, which may not seem like a lot vs 1333, but it's enough to make people feel a little bump in performance!

Obviously AMD wanting to shuffle the releases around a bit could be a marketing move, as much of what they do tends to be about capitalizing on profits...
