I would get a FX 8150 and a 6990 all day before getting one 990x. You are the Intel fanboy that makes Intel owners look bad.
I use my 990x for what it's made for. Not for the fanboyism. It still beats out BD by a long shot. Plus, this is OCN. Extreme and overkill are a part of this site. Performance is what I care about. Not a price tag. Also, seeing as I'm on the almost 3 year old x58 chipset and still winning against the newest AMD products.... point proven.

AMEN!

Another thing, we haven't really seen how far the 8150 can be pushed as far as overclocking goes. The only overclocking I have seen so far, compared the 8150 to the 2500k & 2600k @ 4.6ghz and BD beat the 2500k by a fair margin and was on par with the 2600k in all situation and beat the 2600k in some.

But its a server chip. Why don't you guys get that? Yes its revolutionary, allows amd to quickly pop in updates to the micro architecture with out having to spend years in the drawing board. But no its not meant for the desktop. The scalability is directed to the server market which can be more profitable.

The energy efficiency is too low for the server market....

PROOF!!!
Dude watch the specs of the computers at the end of that video. They used slower ram on the intel systems and with the 980X they used dual channel 1066 memory when the bulldozer rig had 1600 memory.

In the end, for any cpu to be viable, it must match its competitor at the same price point. It doesn't matter who you or I think it's supposed to beat or compete with, price and market are the only things that we need to look at to logically determine this. Does BD do that? Not really - only in a few specific situations. Even worse, it doesn't even compare favorably to previous generation cpus at the same price point, from the same company no less. All it's really "accomplished" is that it is the first 8-core - which is more of a marketing gimmick in the end as there is an extreme lack of any software that will even see improvements with 4 cores.

I wouldn't have considered bulldozer necessarily bad if it would have at least kept up with previous generation Ph II X6 processors clock for clock and consumed less power...



But it doesn't.

Unlike most people here, I look for performance per watt and not vice versa. I really don't care if bulldozer can come close to a 2500/2600k if it's consuming at least twice the power...

BD sucks for games, get over it.

It's not practical for business use because of the power consumption.

So basically, it's an all-around fail.
