Wow BD threads get crazy. On one hand I would like BD to be comparable with my 2500k because I like AMD board layouts better and would happily switch over just to try something new.

On the other hand, scuttlebutt always has a grain of truth in it. Always. Even the most ridiculous farfetched "This is what I heard.." stories start somewhere. I can't really imagine intel hiring sketchy reviewers in other countries to discredit BD before launch. They seem to be in stock in stores in other places, its possible they said FU AMD we're going to bring one home and try it.

Who cares about the processor. This is 2011. The graphics card is now the sole limiting factor of the computer. As long as the processor does not limit the graphics card (Who games at 800x600?) surely price/performance is what really counts?

I believe the reason why these benchmarks look horrible is because the processor is running at 1.4GHz. (as seen by the temperature reading program). Again, this could simply be that there has to be a BIOS refresh, an update to the program to recognise bulldozer.

I'm not giving up hope on bulldozer. It is unfathomable that they will release a processor worse than the current gen.

Phenom X4 was not as bad as many claim to be - it will beat an athlon II X4, clock for clock and core for core. It just didn't overclock to what people would have wanted. There was nothing fundamentally wrong with the architecture - a die shrink and a rebrand to become Phenom II showed it's true potential . Even Intel 65nm processors (bar the Q6600 - which was the exception, not the rule) could not overclock well.

I'll wait for real reviews from people I can trust.

Could it be the low L1 cache bandwidth bottlenecking the potential high throughput of 2 modules? Or something similar that didn't show up in the design phase?

7 years of some of the smartest engineers on the planet, is this a serious question ?

Yeah that's just iffy. Probably optimization/non-compatiblity issues or something. My 1055t gets an average of 61.6 GFlops in LinX. About to test my i5 on my laptop.

Maybe AMD should finally post some info (benches) that is relevant to everyone other than the world record on liquid helium..again with disabled cores... which is cool (No pun intended) in it's own right but completely useless for 99.9% of everyone that has been waiting for "BD".

Besides every unofficial bench (whether legitimate or not).. all I have seen is the AMD "Hype Machine" at work... again. Reminds me of the Whole Phenom II previous liquid helium run.. High clocks what was it? 6.5ghz or something and yet in the real world intel still bulldozed (Pun intended) all over it and back again.

Either way People arguing over CPU's is Pointless and retarded

AMD are You listening? Post Benches or get off the pot

Did you notice the low L1 Write speeds? It's impossible to tell right now if this is hardware or software? Compare it to a 2600k:

did I care to look at obviously unreliable data ?

if true this is sad...
all the hype and the expensive 990FX boards for this?

AMD going back to the "AMD k5/k6" days,
I wonder if this have anything to do with people being fired from AMD recently...

I guess AMD did a mistake with this CMT and a more "netburst" design aiming higher clocks, longer pipelines and so on,
at the end this looks a lot worse than Phenom II (in terms of IPC, single threaded performance)...
a Phenom II die shrink to 32nm and maybe some minor tweaks could probably have worked a lot better (llano is almost that, but with a GPU and no l3)!?

I hope that they have learned something useful and that they can improve or use this architecture for something in the future, and that this CPU can enjoy some success at least for rendering and such heavily multi threaded stuff...
