AMD Bulldozer = Zambezi or Komodo? - Page 3

so my question is "when" bulldozer is released shall go for FX8150 or hold out for the komodo, cos over the years the "FX" series has been the "Flagship" version of the cpu & now apu's are comming, i'm not so sure.

will komodo be better then FX 8150? please help, cos this will be my first build/rig

Future Rig Specs:

case: corsair special ed graphite white 600t series

mobo:

asus crosshair v

cpu: 1090t (black edition)/soon to be bulldozer
1. Gaming doesn't need cores it needs performance, the only reason you should need the 8 core FX is if you plan to game and broadcast

2. Buy the 4 core or the 6 core the cheaper the more easier it is to transition to new things
2b. Price/Performance is what you want
3. Komodo is the FX CPUs after the Zambezi FX CPUs, it will outperform Zambezi, should you wait? No

4. I recommend the ASRock 990FX Professional and the ASUS 990FX Sabertooth over the ASUS Crosshair V Formula
4b.The ASRock one will overclock higher(12(CPU)+2(NB)) vs (8(CPU)+2(NB))
5. Do not buy the Phenom II X6 it is a downgrade from Core 2

from what i have been reading pins are going to go bye bye on AMD boards, we may see komodo in LGA or BGA. personally would rather see BGA.
and glad to see AMD abandoning pins and moving forward.
nothing wrong with pins in my opinion but they take up to much space.

Right now I'd be more concerned about whether any Bulldozer series CPU will be released at all rather than worrying about which Bulldozer line to purchase.

If we go based on this and previous notions of previous AMD Launches

Interlagos will either launch tomorrow(August 2nd) or next week on Monday(August 8th)

Interlagos is a "Bulldozer" core based CPU

Depends on how you look at it. If you read Krishna as, "That guy in Hindu myth who, without lifting a finger, manipulated his enemies into exposing their weaknesses so they could be easily and brutally killed," it sounds kinda badass, right?

Read first page, and I honestly want nothing to do with the APU series, even if it is running on the Bulldozer architecture. For the price/performance you might as well just buy a GTX 560-570. I am just going to buy the 8 core, I already have the mobo to support it.

I'm seriously stoked thinking about getting an FX CPU. Having said that, I'm disappointed (but understand the need to change sockets) that FX is a dead-end architecture. I would have thought that AMD would have reserved top end CPU's for discrete graphics. Including a DX11 core into next gen Bulldozer means no more AM3+ socket. Hello FM2 and another motherboard upgrade next year. LOL
