AMD predicted a 10-15% increase in performance prior to BD launch, so whether its more or less no one will know, as a matter of fact no one should believe any amd rumor hype until they start delivering what they promise. I think ford on the 1995 or 97 cobra went through something similar, they over rated a motor and when people started dynoing them (benchmark of cars) they realised they made less power than Ford said. What does Ford do now? They under rate their performance motors now, a 390hp cobra ends up putting close to that at the wheels stock, a 415GT motor makes 380+ at the wheels stock. It would be kinda like amd releasing a chip at 3.4Ghz but had it set to 3.5Ghz without overclocking. Its not the best analogy but close enough. I think AMD needs to repair their reputation a bit.
