Ignore that it isn't a true 8 core but shares resources in the module so under load it will lose performance.
Jeez man you must be crazy.
I have said before and I will say it again, if it is close to the 2600K this is win and huge jump for AMD. It is a sweet price if it performs close to SB. And is right in that budget sector that AMD had told its shareholders, such as I, for years they have been targeting.
How can you say this is a huge jump for AMD?
It basically gets the same scores, in both single and multi-threaded, as an 1100T.
But the problem is, BD is an 8 core chip, vs a 6 core, and it's also clocked higher.
If you downclocked it to match the 1100T's 3.3Ghz stock speed, BD would LOSE to it. And BD has 2 more "cores"!
I am in the same boat as another poster previously, I waited to see if BD was worth the wait to upgrade, and now, it looks like I wasted my time...Edited by black96ws6 - 10/6/11 at 6:38pm
