Yeah, it's clearly bugged.
When I say 100% working as it should, I mean bug free. I didn't mention performances.
But the result is the same, this stuff is buggy as hell, can't even handle Windows right and is worse than Phenom II.
But STILL, it's B0. This thing should not be B0, judging by it's perfs it should be a very very early chip made for AMD only, for testing purpose. That's why it's disturbing.
AMD should not send something like that to mobo facturers, that's for sure. I'm pretty sure mobo facturers got a bug free version... Still underperforming it seems but able to handle windows at least =_=.

It s an ES not meant for the public.It s not intended for performance comparitions ,it s meant for compatibility tests with the mobos most probable.This in case the site posted stuff is not faked.
Dude, this was not even a serious answer. It was more like "come on, it is just too bad to be real". Some of you take this stuff too seriously!
(BTW Testing mobo compatibility with a bug-riddled chip is not the best way to do it...)Edited by MacA - 6/9/11 at 3:47pm
