Bulldozer VS Thuban

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I recently setup a 2nd system (Asus ROG 990FX mobo and a phenom 955 BE) for gaming, light photoshop usage and photo editing. The main intention was also to go bulldozer after its release. However, with the current launch of the product and the reviews which have been released. Is it worthwhile to upgrade to bulldozer?? Although working on an older architecture, the thuban 1100T seems to be of comparable performance overall in many instances, any reasons to go bulldozer then??

The tin box?

But really, a 1090T looks to be a better value at this point.

I'm going to say no.

If I were given a choice right now between the FX 8120-8150 or a 1090T-1100T, I'd honestly choose the 1090T-1100T. You're getting near identical performance, way less power draw and are likely to pay -significantly- less.

Honestly, I've been thinking about building a computer for my brother. I'd probably buy one of those nice 990FX motherboards and just get a Phenom II for him as a budget build. There's nothing wrong with that, and he'd still have a perfectly respectable rig.

i wouldnt even up to a 1100, you wont see much of a performance boost over the 955, at least not enought to justify the price. what GPU(s) are you using in the rig?

Grab a 1090t i only grabbed the 1100t since it was just 5 bucks more with free shipping sum months ago. And maybe the true savior will come in Vishera, Bulldozers successor.

At least it will have piledrivers cores

I have a MSI GTX560 Ti Hawk in this rig.

I currently have the Phenom II 965, was thinking of grabbing a new FX processor as I already have a 990FX motherboard. So It looks like you guys are saying stick to the Phenom II 1100T? Maybe even just stay with the 965?

Yeah, sadly.

A lot of the results indicate that single threaded performance takes a dive even when compared to Phenoms. So, if you're gaming at all, it's just not a smart choice when factoring that and the significant power draw these chips require (could be a liability in terms of VRM). And yeah, in terms of gaming, the 965 would be the smart choice as a lot of comparisons indicate that the quad core FX chips are significantly slower than the Phenom II x4s.

it is indeed disheartening to hear that amd has launched a product that does not outperform its predecessors in some applications. However, given the fact that this is the initial launch of the product, any possibility that the future bulldozer cores could be better? or could this be the best that we will see?
