honestly bulldozer can still do something good, but it needs to be dirt cheap to do it
if it get a large enough market share consumer level programs will be pushed to better multi-thread support, meaning octo-core cpus would be needed, and thus push intel and amd to design(better for amd) octo-core cpus for the consumer since there is a market for them
no company would bring to market products that don't have a market to sell to, it's basic economics, it does suck they the first octo core cpu for consumers has trouble keeping up with the previous gen from the same company, but i see it as a necessary step forward. . .
would i buy or recommend a bulldozer cpu, nope.
