if i switch, it would be to Llano. that would make it what, amd again ? yes.

i am set with a 990fx board from gigabyte and a beautiful 965 be phenom ii. i dont feel the need to switch to anything actually.

but, the game benchmarks and videos i saw of top end Llano chip with hybrid crossfire etc had made my saliva drool from the corner of my mouth.

I may have to break my 4-5 year upgrade cycle. The 486DX2 was a tank, the Pentium MMX was great, I loved my PIII Coppermine, and then AMD gained my favor with my Clawhammer, so I got this Deneb but that hasn't been stable and it sucks power like bulldozer (well almost, it's about a 200 watt increase from idle to load at 3.76 GHz).

The anticipation for bulldozer kept my hopes up. Back in spring I made a list of stuff that I thought AMD should be shooting for with bulldozer. They failed every single item on that list.

Provided the global economy doesn't go down the rabbit hole by the end of next year, whatever intel's offering is between $200 and $250 will be sitting real purdy next to my desk.

AMD used to be a "budget alternative", now they aren't even an alternative.

A) You buy Intel and live happily ever after.
B) You buy AMD, then proceed to tell everyone, "Just wait! Next generation AMD is gonna compete with Intel!"

I'll be switching in time.

Will it be 2700k, SB-E, or Ivy is the only question now.

Jumped ship to my current Intel configuration. Was using a Phenom II X2 555 unlocked to X4 before. That performed fine, but I had some funds for an upgrade and I didn't think that Bulldozer would be much better. Turns out it's worse!

I've been an intel gamer since high school, and even back then when I had NO clue how to build a gaming PC back at 2004 when I ordered my overpriced Dell Pentium 4 3.40 ghz with Hyperthreading cost me $4500 cdn on a 4 year financing deal I have never had any problems on it gaming since back then I had the ATI Radeon X1900 XT AGP Video Card till end of 2007 when my Dell started to show it's age.

I got a Toshiba Satellite Laptop X200 LC10DC Model for $3000 cdn Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.20 ghz with dual Nvidia GTX video cards ( I forget what they are ) the laptop lasted me 2 years till it started giving me problems luckily for me I had purchased an extended 3 year warranty and even though after every few months the laptop would die on me I didn't pay a penny for repairs!

In may of this year my laptop finally died and being out of warranty I got a qoute of $900 cdn for parts ONLY no labour cost to get it repaired so I had decided to build a gaming pc for myself since most pc gaming sites said building one is extremely cheap and easy than having to pay a brand for their premium systems.

Then I heard about AMD's next gen cpu the bulldozer FX series through browsing several forums like HardOCP, Toms Hardware, Overclockd3d, Overclockers, Anandtech on how they all seem to point on POSITIVE rumours on how amazing bulldozer was gonna be!

So I decided that I would wait for bulldozer to come out and if the reviews were POSITIVE then I would go AMD, but AMD kept delaying the release date so many times the said early 2011, then it became 2nd quarter then it became 3rd quarter and finally by end of july I just stopped listening to the rumours and just bought me an ASrock Z68 Extreme 7 Gen 3 Motherboard and soon I got the 1155 I7 2600K just 3 weeks I believe before bulldozer officially launched.

I wouldnt have minded the abysmal performance of the FX 8150 but the endless delays and the AMD marketing propaganda is what turned me off the brand.

Point is if you wanna sell something, you should try bring it out to market on schedule if there are delays you as a manufacturer should give the public a definite launch date NOT delays after delays after delays you keep doing that the buyer won't wait forever and I know there are people like me who wanted to try Bulldozer but was at their patience ends and just decided to go to Intel I7 2600K because thats is whats available.
