My memory is a little hazy, but isn't this worse than the P4 debacle?

Not sure if you're trolling or not but you're trying way too hard to stay as unbiased as possible. Staying unbiased is a good thing but sometimes things are just simply bad. BD is a failed processor and there's just no way to word your way around it.

If AMD has designed this from the ground up we maybe able to see a significant performance increase in a year or so.

This is bad for people who were going to go 2 way Crossfire/SLI with BD.

Makes it a little bit of a niche CPU. It needs a small price reduction to compete really, I think $210-$215 for a 8150 would be fine, a great upgrade for some people.

I'm a little disappointed, I wanted better, though I knew it wasn't gonna beat Intel, but its a step in the right direction maybe. Hopefully they can get single threaded performance up a bit with the next versions and get llano yields under control so they can get moving on maturing the architecture.

But again, I see no real reason for people to be calling it an epic fail, its far from the truth. It's simply not a gaming monster and thats what a lot of people here seem to want, at least the very vocal ones...
You reading some different reviews?

Based on the reviews in the OP there is absolutely no reason for anyone to buy a bulldozer CPU for anything.

Folks were expecting this to crush SB and at a minimum, at least have net gains across the board. NEITHER situation has happened.

$285 for a lame processor in which the previous gen Phenom beats while $100 cheaper. Then we have the wonderful $200 i5 2500k which beats it all. Wow, this is just BS AMD.
