Who else skipped Bulldozer?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Atleast I did! Instead of upgrading two things, I got myself a cheapo 1090T.

Anyone else?

EDIT:
Lol, the FX 8150 costs 355 usd in norway.. D:

That's a nice overclock you have there. Is it stable?

Myself, I'm not even touching Bulldozer with a long stick, never was. Ivy please.

It's stable at 4,7ghz! But for some odd reason I lose my tempsensors over 4,3? Weird bug, never seen that one before, It might have something to do with the Cool'n'Quiet settings that I fiddled with. (It is disabled)

I saw the initial benchmarks, then spent $600 switching to Sandy Bridge from a C2D System.

Glad I did, I love AMD but. At the end of the day its the product that matters and AMD came up way short.

Wait what?

Got a validation of that? Thubans shouldn't be reaching 4.7ghz without chilled water and 1.6v+ volts. If you somehow did without, that's insanely good.

After the way they priced Bulldozer, I'm not buying anything from AMD ever again.
post #7 of 23
Yeah, I'm skipping Bulldozer. Happy with what I've got at the moment, it's way fast enough for what I use it for

Nice overclock. How long did you test it for stability?
post #8 of 23
Yeah I'm not getting a BD unless there is some magical fix. Waiting out for Ivy Bridge or Piledriver.

I'm going to skip BD, for next year at least. But i wonder if it makes sense to change my X4 to X6 now?

Got it to boot at 4,5ghz @ 1,475vcore, however when I set the settings for 4,7ghz @ 1,5vcore it boots, but shows 3,2 in cpuz? Shows 1,5vcore.

I had it on 4,7 earlier today.

Well I went from my unlocked B50 x4 to a X6 for two reasons;

1. MOAR COARS!!!11 (lol amd)
2. Higher overclocks

Those two combined can lead to a good bit of performance gain in newer games that utilize all 6 cores.
