Can't anyone have a laugh at the naming convention? What.. if I had an AMD under my avatar then could I poke fun?
I'm not against AMD in any way shape or form, however Bulldozer is the biggest pile of fail to exist yet.
You can't simply add more cores to get more performance. It doesn't work that way without strengthening what allows those cores to function. AMD's approach to BD was "HEY LETS THROW MORE CORES ON A DIE GUIZE!" if you think otherwise.. they were supposed to release a 12 core!
We're already barely utilizing 4 cores! Why would we need 8?
I mean really, it couldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out it's architecture was going to have issues!
The last AMD advancement ever made was on the x64. Since then AMD hasn't really accomplished anything. I'm disappointed in AMD currently... they have a lot of work to do to bring themselves back up in caliber to what we saw years ago.
Sheesh. Tired of this fanboy crap...
AMD guy here. I will back you on this.
I am absolutely disgusted at this release personally. I wanted something to compete all around with the I-5 and I-7. And what we ended up with was a cpu that performs worse per core than a phenom II. The only thing it runs well in (which is a given) is applications that use more cores. and it barely does that compared to the 4 cored intels.
As I said before I helped two friends buy their new I-5 2500k systems because they wanted the best gaming rig for the money. I will gladly be upgrading to Ivy Bridge when it comes out.
I really wanted AMD to pull this off.
