Yeah, why is this thread so civilized with this announcement but yet any thread with BD goes crazy? Something is not right here.
1. SB can pretty much do anything at this point without issue, there's a lot less riding on IB than BD
2. People haven't been waiting for IB for years on end
3. The delay doesn't appear to be due to performance issues as was the rumor with BD, but rather marketing reasons - people hear performance issues and go wild
4. I think people have a lot more trust in Intel at the moment - AMD is keeping everything under wraps and that does not sit well with the enthusiast community
It's pretty easy to see why people are less concerned/less worked up over this news. I know your mind probably instantly goes to "OMG Intel fanboys", but the differences are clear.Edited by Iceman23 - 6/21/11 at 1:12pm
