Based on the theory that they were not of the quality the new guy wants, I'd say Bulldozer would be in the same boat. Except the new CEO couldnt cancel this product with it being so close to release.

I'd call Bulldozer the last of the old AMD, so I'm more interested in seeing what happens when the first products from under the stewardship of the new guy come out.
Same.

I dunno what happened, Bulldozer just crashed and burned, But hopefully it really is just a chipset/BIOS/Windows issue

I was pretty sad to see all the benchmarks honestly. I had been waiting on BD for a couple months but will be switching over to sandy bridge for this generation of CPU's at least. I like AMD and the price/performance ratio brought me in. If AMD comes back, I will be switching back.

I had honestly planned on an FX8120 with a 990FX board...was hoping to do a straight trade for my SB parts. I miss the "tweakability" of AMD. Not going to take such a huge step back (right now) in performance.

That's why I'm waiting to see what happens in the next few weeks.

Pioneerisloud - Bravo to you sir

I think I might build an 1100t Just to wait things out on the BD font. I will make my final decision on Monday with what I am going to do. I plan on building my new rig next weekend

Thank you for this post, it is much appreciated.

If you're looking at buying a new AMD CPU right now, may I suggest the 960T?

Would it be a good idea to put that 960T on a AM3+/990xx board? (upgrade path)

Why a 960T ?
post #38 of 62
My opinion is that it's usually best to wait a revision or two before buying any new tech, regardless of how great it is there are usually bugs or things that will be optimized later on.

I'm pulling for AMD to fix the issues, I'd switch back in a heartbeat if the performance was there.

I hear those are actually x6's and can be unlocked.

960T because its a Thuban core, but with 4 cores instead of 6. Some will unlock to fully stable x6's. They're unlocked multiplier. Plus, since its Thuban, you get that BEASTLY memory controller.

It's by FAR the best AMD quad core on the market right now (especially since it unlocks). And yes, I would pair it with a 990 board if I was buying AMD right now, or if I already had a 990 board.
