You're too invested in the expectations of others. You're going to get entertainment out of people being skeptical
? Anyone with reasonable expectations would be comparing Bulldozer as a next generation evolution of Deneb and Thuban. So far these leaked benchmarks are not showing much of an improvement, if any at all. As such it is quite reasonable for people to be skeptical
of the early rumors showing Bulldozer worse
But more to come out the more it doesn't look good. Looks like something is not right. Right now I'm thinking there's probably another TLB-like fiasco going on.
