What AMD has done with processors has turned the industry on it's ear and I think many are simply afraid of change. That is why there have been so many battles over the definition of the "core vs module" in numerous forums. What I loath is the Intel fanboys that insist on crashing anything related to BD or AMD for that fact because in their minds they "think" they bought the best product but are having doubts about said purchase. Posters that post just to troll knowing that what they are doing only charges the forum further are complete idiots that have no respect for anything.
It's not over until the NDA lifts. PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!
i agree with some of what you said,but not all.i too will buy BD regardless of how it performs,mainly because i think its going to be fun to OC and thats all i do with hardware,so my view is i never really care what benchmarks say.i buy from both camps because i love OCing new hardware,hell i also go back and forth between generations,like one week i might buy a i7-920 setup to play with and then sell it and grab a E8400+EP45-UD3P because its a fun Ocing platform,then sell it and grab an i7-870 or a Phenom II and then sell it and grab a REX and E8600 or do a total downgrade due to money and use a Phenom 9650 like i had a few months ago. the past two years i must have gone through at least 20 cpus and and maybe 10- 15 platforms.so my perspective isnt like someone who upgrade once or twice every two years.and i am 100% confident that BD will sell very well and benchers at HWbot will make good use of these and be very popular,no mater how BD performs.
plus if the price is under $250 for all FX cpu's,average user will buy no mater what
but as to the intel fanboys in BD threads,i do think they can be annoying,but i also think blind AMD defenders are too.it takes two to tango and destroy threads,do you know what i mean

It has to be at least better then phenom II, i dont expect 50% better but at least 5% better per core better.
Whats the sense in making something worse than you already have and price it higher???
I waiting for a good and trusted review website i know to make my decisions.
well im sure if it turns out to be true AMD didnt do it on purpose,think about how difficult it is to do a new uarch and then look at how hard it is to do a node shrink,AMD did both at the same time a new innovated uarch on an unmature 32nm process,add gatefirst and you can imaginge how easy unknown problem might arise,even intel avoids this because its just so risky.if problems did arise then AMD would have to make the best of it and still release BD.the good news if this is a new uarch that AMD can build upon and tweak and make better,something they couldnt do with the last gen,it was on its last legs in terms of improvementsEdited by radaja - 10/10/11 at 9:49am
