The real world, well threaded, tests that were shown still have BD competitive with Intel CPUs in the same price range.

The 8120 tested today easily keeps up with a 2500 in x264, and very nearly matches it in Cinebench (if the circumstances of the test are taken into consideration). Given OCing reports that have BD more or less matching SB, these chips aren't that bad a deal.

Of course they probably won't be such a good idea for gamers, but anyone who does nothing but play games should already have a 2500k if they were even considering a 200-250 dollar chip.
I agree with just about everything you say, this was no different.

With the rumors going around,AMD is apparently wiping their hands of the whole mess and scrapping Komodo for the Vishera platform for 2012 instead of going with another Bulldozer revision.
For encoding people would love the FX,but the issue is FX has already been marketed to the gamers,who look for the best bang for the buck processor.
at this point we really dont know what AMD has planned about anything,heck we cant even figure BD out yet

Don't want to start a pissing contest. That's not what im here to do.

With that said, they marketed this to the all around enthusiast, with gaming being one of them. And not just gaming, but "ultra" high resolution gaming. Ya know, the gaming that's GPU bottlenecked anyways. Just saying.

These discussions on BD have been painful to watch - fanboyism on all sides, flaming to challenge the best/worst known to the interwebs, conclusion jumping, logically fallacious rationalizations, preconceived notions posed as objective analysis ... the list is practically endless.

And it's funny how seemingly objectionable the calls for patience are to some. Is it that hard to wrap ones head around the concept of waiting until the official release of a product that the manufacturer has specifically stated will not be represented in any released benches until such a time?

It really doesn't matter what is released prior to such, or how accurate it "was" or not - all conclusions made beforehand are necessarily spurious and invalid until seen in retrospect post official-release. These conditions are explicitly stated, and there's been nothing official to the contrary. Why would anyone believe or accept differently without skeptical analysis?

The CPU shown today is a substantial improvement. A faster, higher clocked (and likely better overclocking), BD will be an even bigger improvement.

I do not give a toss about single threaded performance, and thats the only area my current AMD chips could compete.

Obviously they are going to market it to everyone on the off chance that even markets it's ill suited to attract buyers.

Doesn't mean gamers should pick one up.
