AMD FX (Bulldozer) Owners Club! - Page 9

post #81 of 8112
The great thing is that AMD's backwards compatibility really gives you options. If you bought a 990FX board early, it's not really a waste if you don't want BD because you can still use Phenom II chips. Although 990FX platform isn't leaps and bounds over 880FX, it still provides SOME improvement, especially in the area of stability. You can't say that about Intel most of the time. If I had bought a new Intel Platform and found out the CPU, which came later, wasn't up to snuff, I'd have to sell it because it would be useless with any other chip.

Has anyone got their's yet?
post #83 of 8112
Well, I already bought myself a 990fx board a couple of months now, It's almost as if there isn't any room for turning back, even though I am kind of regretting that purchase as I was on the fence of getting a Z68 board for SB at the time. Regardless, it should at least be a small upgrade from my existing 1055t which gave me some serious overclocking pains from the locked multiplier.

So, with that said, I just ordered myself an 8120 from Newegg this morning, and I will probably just stick with about a 3.6 operating frequency to keep up with the 8150 stock speeds. Also, I'm also glad that when I chose my PSU about a year and a half ago I went way over the wattage that I needed, because as it turns out, I will probably end up pushing that PSU closer to it's limit.

Moreover, we haven't seen the full potential of BD. Look at the 6950 and 6970's release, they were a bit of disappointment. But those two cards turned out to be great when xfired. smile.gif

What's wrong with pins?

Hey I just wanted to mention, that even though Im not supporting bulldozer currently, I do respect you guys for getting bulldozer cpu's. I most likely will once the dust settles and everything gets straightened out. In the end we will still be shoulder to shoulder on the battlefield!

Well, I'll be happy to share with you guys my own personal experience with the 8120. The key here is that there are always sacrifices you must make as an early adopter. In the end what it really boils down to is the aggregate mean of the end-users' satisfaction with the product. Come next week we will be the ones pretty much putting the final words into the general consensus of this series of chips as of now, as there still seems to be a lot of dispute. It is also possible that we, as early adopters, will have to wait it out with buggy/unoptimized hardware & software for a little while until all of the issues get hammered out. My biggest fear, however, is that the inferior performance of this architecture is simply with the shipped hardware itself, and will not be "fixed" until at least the next iteration (possibly with piledriver).

So, hold tight as the real end-users of these chips start voicing our personal experiences with Bulldozer.

P.S. With all of the concerns with bulldozers under-utilization on Windows 7, I'll probably be running some benchmarks on my Linux boot as well, and see how this guy performs with compiling, MySQL, and other thread heavy development operations.

Gappo and Sin have them.

They got them through OEMs, but they are still final silicon.

seriously. Pins on the CPU are SO much easier to fix than those tiny little flagella type things in Intel sockets.

kinda overly dramaticized, but yea, that is what i'm waiting to see.

Compilers and stuff have just been updated, devs obviously haven't got arround to fully considering bulldozer's architecture yet.

I got a # from TD. UPS estimates next wedsday. I'm thinking i should have paid the extra $10 for faster ship.
