It'll apparently put threads per dual module in the scheduler, so it has an fpu to each task, not shared.
I think the biggest performance gain will be from the new stepping they're bringing out.

It will improve performance and reduce power consumption with some multithreaded workloads with a better thread schedule. However, single-threaded performance will not improve.

And if it doesn't, Windows 9 will. Just wait.

short answer I don't think it will really help. in theory it will help a bit with cpus at stock clock when running programs that don't utilize all the cores. basically windows7 treats all the cores evenly even though a module shares some resources between two cores. the developer preview tries to load all the work onto as few modules as possible so it can spin down the unused. when some modules are idle the turbo whatever amd calls it kicks in and ratchets up the clock speed. however since you are on an overclockers website and most overclockers I believe disable this turbo it doesn't really help. in fact if the scheduler can't tell the turbo is disabled then it would actually be hindering performance as it would be loading modules down and sharing resources unncecessarily. but I am pretty sure the scheduler behaves correctly when turbo is disabled so windows 8 should give pretty much the same performance as windows 7 for overclockers. I could be wrong as I'm pretty new at overclocking and am trying to piece together what I've seen on other sites but I believe this is the case

These could very well be cherry picked benchmarks but:

Considering that is a very early version of Windows 8, i am encouraged.
and at the very least, power consumption should fall a bit.

Core Parking: Works!

Better still, core parking, the scheduling feature that loads tasks onto as few cores as possible, shutting down the rest to save power, does recognize and optimize for Bulldozer modules. In Windows 7, you’d never see a parked core on the FX-8150. Windows 8 rectifies this, and parks cores in pairs, which we interpret to be Bulldozer modules going to sleep.

this could alleviate the power issues.

At idle, sure... Not at full load though. Which is where bulldozer really shines.
