This is unfortunate Im disappointed with AMD because as consumers, we really needed Bulldozer to challenge Intel so we could get some better/cheaper chips.

Does not look like that's gonna happen this round. :/

Some of the posts here in this thread are puzzling. Before the BD benches, people said the reason for low scores was the ES name in the identifier. Furthermore, they argued over and over again that BD is a 'true' octacore CPU eventhough we all know that is not the case. Now, they are saying it's all good and if you want more performance you need to disable stuff on it? So if I have to disable things on it, why should I buy an octacore CPU?


This does not make sense. AMD is advertising one thing but selling something else. They did the same with the 5870 'best gaming card in the world, best graphics card on the planet'. Make it tesselate and it will go down on its knees compared to the NVIDIA counterpart. Now AMD advertises the awesome price associated with the FX series trying to manipulate from the larger picture. Instead of admitting, yes we dropped the ball, we are fixing it, they are sweeping it under the rug?

At this point in time, I will not consider BD as a solution for my third rig. I'll go IVY.

Didnt the new CEO cancel a load of upcoming products?

Based on the theory that they were not of the quality the new guy wants, I'd say Bulldozer would be in the same boat. Except the new CEO couldnt cancel this product with it being so close to release.

I'd call Bulldozer the last of the old AMD, so I'm more interested in seeing what happens when the first products from under the stewardship of the new guy come out.

Taking four years to deliver the product like this clearly makes many disappointed regardless which market and user level are planned targeting. Based on most reviews here, it is clearly that Bulldozer doesn’t work well with current OS and hardware components. You can argument that its architecture may focus on future and may work better on new coming software and hardware components but it seems to me that this needs lot accommodations from software and hardware vendors which is an extremely difficult task. A typical user just can’t spent $200 on it and hopes that happens, and not to mention the power consumption when OC. Also, it seems a disconnection among development, production and marketing teams and they all drop the ball….

Has anyone seen benchmarks when running in Eyefinity? This is what I am interested in since that's what I run. I saw several tests done that showed BD performed equal to a 2600K at high resolution gaming (2560 x 1600)

AMD mabye misunderstood the term teraflop, and just went for the flop part.

Well they delivered this in spades.

Uh 1080P is as mainstream a resolution as you're going to get. It'd be another story if they were running 2560x1600 or Eyefinity resolutions, then you'd have a better argument.

Thanks for posting that though...I think that pretty much removes all my optimism now. Sigh - chew* had given me a lot of hope from his posts too. It's one thing to be manipulated by marketing folks...but frankly I'm disappointed that I was led on by one of the more prominent OCers in the community too.
