Will Bulldozer clean the sand off the brigde? - Page 2  

post #11 of 104
I would say if it pushes the prices down on 1100t and 2500k then it did its job for us and we will get better pricing for either way we go. I am betting once it really comes out it will be close to the 2500k at stock and hopefully be a better overclocker to push it ahead or close enough that people will get a great bang for the buck.

Short answer? No.

If its very good and cheap and beats my current sandy bridge build my a lot, then I might upgrade. Depends on whether or not it can overclock well with my current cooler and such because there would be no point in "upgrading" if my current 2500k @ 4.6 GHz beats it in performance with the max overclock I can get with the same cooler.

I read a thread on here about a month ago saying that Intel announced that they are not producing any more phenom ii or athlon ii chips anymore and only producing bulldozer (and what was released after this post) the amd apu's. Phenoms will drop in price afterwards, and then be sold out by retailers it seems. But this might not be true because AMD could have said otherwise recently.

To be honest bloodyrory your 2500k at 4.6ghz is probably going to beat an overclocked BD...least the 8210.

I guess, well you'll never know until it actually releases. Yesterday though there was a thread on here and livestream with a guy who managed to buy a bulldozer chip from a Ukrainian store or something weird like that, and it was doing worse than the phenom chips someone in the comments said. But, that really doesn't even count until it's actually released though.

Yes it does. Its the same chip that we'll be buying in the states in 2 days

rory, i doubt you'll see anything from BD, performance wise, to lure you away from the 2500k you already own.

it seems like BD performance remains mostly a concern for: those who haven't upgraded yet, and those who want competition to drive down prices and spur innovation.

i'm hoping that, after software optimizations, that BD will be a fair price/performance option that is slightly under the 2500k. that seems a reasonable expectation to me. we'll see how it does in the next few days.

*edit* of course, my concern is for gaming. i really can't speak to heavily threaded activities or how it will perform there, but i wouldn't be surprised if the 8 core could edge out the 2500k. could be good for folders. we'll see.

Intel is making the Bulldozer chips now? Ah they might turn out to be pretty good in that case then

BD awful performance even with double the core of an SB.
With overclock burns double the power of an SB at the same clocks.
This thing requires double the energy of an SB to perform worse than an 2600k.
Only die hard fanboys and uninformed ppl will buy it it seems.
Definitely a great disappointment even for me. I was looking for them for a second build. But not like this lol. Don't want a CPU that consumes power like it is a GPU.

That was Bassplayer, one of the Mods here on OCN.
