Bulldozer will probably thrive in the server market at the end of the day.

Bulldozer consumer was unneeded. The APU's AMD came out with are more than sufficient for most gamers out there.

AMD should have just let Bulldozer be a server market only chip that would have eventually made its way to the enthusiast market.

AMD should have just said that their focus was all about APU's now, and that Bulldozer is a side project.

Yeah?

This will sit with servers about as well as it does with gamers.

8150 vs Xeon?

Man, you may as well just go to the circus tbh.

"The novel Bulldozer design of the FX-8150 seems to be light on performance per core, as our image editing test shows. This test is single-threaded, and the FX-8150 fared extremely poorly with a stock-speed score of 887. To put that into context, a Core 2 Duo E6700 is 13 per cent faster and a Core i5-2500K is almost twice as fast as the FX-8150 in this kind of situation."

Bulldozer has trouble even keeping up with a dual core cpu made in 2006. I don't know how much worse than that it can get.

insane power draw is more of an issue with OCed CPUs if I understand correctly... not a very common business / server practice to OC their CPUs

It seems like AMD felt pressure to release Bulldozer when they probably needed another 6 months to get it to where it needed to be.By that time power issues would have been addressed. At load it seems Bulldozer is fail but not at idle.

I just dont see why the higher ups at AMD let Bulldozer become a dog and pony show. It takes aways press from their good product, their APU's.

It won't. Performance per watt is atrocious. Server market is all about performance per watt.
