Well that's also very true. Hence I say we kinda don't know yet about it's performance.
It could be spot on, or it could be a bit off. Also, BD has been delayed enough, AMD knew they needed something but it had to be at least manageable.
I'd say BD is very manageable for AMD and if BD was set back anymore it could of been more of a hinder then getting an implementation adequate to their standards in theory of project. There is a reason plenty of revisions come down the pipeline and let's not forget the TLB bug, AMD knows product on the shelf at times is more important than another Delay to market.
In just a very short few more days it will be set in stone more so of what BD is and has to offer. So many reviews have been done yes but many factors have kinda culminated together and some if addressed may help. But being realistic, nothing done is going to get a 100% win for AMD in this round. In other words I don't expect major enough changes to stomp so to speak Intel and their offerings, but for teh price AMD has landed itself in a great market as always, price/performance.
This is all just me though slowly taking it in and being open to possibilities.
