The memory controller is quite impressive once you freeze it though. I ran DDR3-2400+ when benching under LN2.
thanks

This was.... disapointing... don't get me wrong i was not ever under any illusions that it would be competing with i7 at a decent level, but i did expect it to consistently beat phenom 2....

was gonan upgrade, sticking with my 955 looks like

How are home user reviews any more viable than the ones listed on the first page .

Infact i would not trust ANY home user reviews atall, Photoshop is amazing and all.....

Amd Bulldozer does not seem toooooooooooooooooooo bad. Its slow yes but I see bulldozer getting better for when things that require quad cores come around. in the HardOC review it keep up and more for battle field 3. If I was one of the ones who waited for Bulldozer then I say get one.

This it just another one of AMD's overambitious failures.

Hooray to my sig.

Battlefield 3 is a GPU limited game.

guys like us on the same forum can be at least truthfull to each other....so it might make more sense if people here made some self reviews...although i agree about the photoshop concern.......
and btw with users having absolutely different overall hardware configurations and different applications/games we can get even better i dea about bd's overal performance......but thats just my point of view......

Also, lets keep in mind we are comparing a beta here. I would not put all my faith in a beta...especially one that will supposedly change alot of things.
