Lord people, and don't go about saying that it's pointless to go after AMD still because people will crowd around these chips and love them moreso than the Phenom IIs they're currently attached to.
You can state it however many time you like and in the biggest font you like but it's completely irrelevant who you think/AMD stated would be the target for BD. The simple fact is, SB is on the market now and BD will soon be on the market. They are in competition by nature of their price, market segment, and timing. Would you choose to buy an old Nehalem i7 for a new PC? Of course not, why wouldn't you go for a SB?
