Really I think this is the future of AMD. Poor IPC, and continuing on in poor IPC's.
To be fair the enthusiast market is so small. And while this may seem like outrage here, the rest of the world doesn't really care.

Yep and people like to plan ahead and try to have a little confidence in future upgrades. I almost waited for bulldozer as I could have saved buying my 2600K and recycled my old board that I had since 2006 (Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe) and just use CBROM and a donor bios to make the cpu microcode compatible like I did on the 955BE. But since it didnt even equal twice the power of the 955BE I upgraded from i'm glad I didn't wait.

It didn't matter for me, but, I feel sorry for a friend of mine that bought a $180 am3+ board to prepare for BD, when he already has a just fine board for his use - Today I told him to cancel the fx8150 order and I sold him my spare 2500k/p8p67 for cheap, felt so sorry for him.

BD's issues might be software related performance-wise, but the watt usage and not very good overclocking capabilities is a good enough reason to lay hands off it.

He learned a valuable lesson. Don't buy crap for unreleased products.

AM3+ motherboards weren't going anywhere.

I think the BD will eventually be on par with the sandy bridge but it will take time the key here is that it is completely new architecture. I was simply expecting a lot more at the release because they set the world record for overclocking.... (yes i would never go there but still). I would bet though in a few months they will find the issue and it will be much better

By the time BD is on par with SB Intel will be another 3 generations ahead.

Imagine that you're waiting for a product to come out, for years. And years. And what seems like an eternity. And then when it does come out, it's a failure.

People saw how disappointed the Duke fans were when Forever came out. Well, that was a video game.

THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A FLAGSHIP BRAND NEW BUILT FROM THE GROUND UP CPU ARCHITECTURE!

*sigh*

Yeah. As I said in another thread (that got deleted), that's a prime example of why you shouldn't jump on the early adopter train, unless you're a reviewer or something. When Sandy Bridge was first released earlier this year, I decided to wait a few weeks to see what would be coming (not to mention the rather minimal selection of motherboards available at the time.) Waiting saved me from getting screwed over by the Cougar Point chipset flaw.
