This makes me laugh and cry at the same time

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well, I haven't been an AMD fan for a while now, mainly because they just can't compete with Intel on performance. But I was hoping for some more choices and for good competition to help drop Intel prices...
especially when I kept hearing..."when Bulldozer gets here its going to own SB"
and to see this!?!?
wow AMD, why even bother releasing this? I mean, especially knowing that it won't compete?

Understanding that most apps right now aren't built to fully utilize multiple cores, especially games, that they would make sure it could at least compete on single threaded apps.
But ok, 8 cores... and doesnt even really beat a 4 core 2500k in multi threaded benches?? are u serious?
I'm sorry AMD, but Intel didn't need any help, and thats all you've done, made it completely obvious that youre just too late in the game, and still don't compete.

A good review by Bit Tech for more:

Hi,

While not running AMD I was rooting for Bulldozer to score a home run
as we need the competition especially in the pricing side of it.

Hoping the 2nd edition of it does better.

Look at the difference between our CO and DO chips when they came out.

Still better than what they had and pretty much on par with the 25-2600K
Eight full cores though, and the server side should benefit..

Kind of hard on power though when they lean on it.

About 6 months and mid range Ivy has my interest.
I can wait.

Bulldozer's failure is bittersweet with me. On one hand, I am disappointed that Intel doesn't have the competition needed to cause them to drop their prices and bring out new technology but on the other hand, the idiots who "knew" BD would "smash SB" look like idiots... esp the ones who continue to keep denying the facts.

Yea, I'm sure this has been a major topic here for the past few weeks, but I've been out of the OC.net scene for that time, so sorry for adding to what I'm sure is already a huge pile.
And I'm not saying BD sux, but I just had to share my disappointment. I really want to see someone give Intel some competition, ya know, more options, better prices, etc

Oh dear, what happened?!
I have been hearing about this processor for a long time and all the interviews and stuff i was hopping they were going to give intel a run for their money!
Even my 980X probably beats that :/

I would never go AMD anyway, im a long time intel/nvidea "fanboy" i if you like to call it that but i was hopping that with competition Intel prices would come down.

Sizuke... the 2500k beats it, not to mention a 980X, lol

and yea, i really wanted some more healthy competition, it always helps drive prices down and bring up new and faster technologies
