That's what many people said in respect to Bulldozer...

To get back on topic. I don't think supply has anything to do with it. I think it's more a case of retailers not ordering enough. Due to all the bad press that BD has received, I don't think retailers were very keen on filling their stocks with BD. 2 days ago, Amazon had no 8120's in stock. Yesterday, when I checked, they had 2 in stock. Today I checked again and they are out of stock. So I'm thinking it's the retailers that can't keep up with demand.

32nm 8 core Thuban would be nice. I'd pay for that.

seems like a lot are missing the obvious,  I think a lot of ppl who bought phenoms IIs, have AM3+ motherboards that may or may have not cost them $50-250 already, and they rather just buy a $200 CPU with good performance, as opposed to buying a 2500k-2600k AND a new motherboard... $200 vs 400-600...for mayb 5-20% more performance that a lot ppl won't even notice cause ppl don't game at 1024x768...and 99% of ppls monitors only support 60hz so you won't see anything past 60fps...    I myself am in that same boat, I realize the 2500k is a better processor than the 8120 @ $200 for single and dual core game by maybe 20%+....would I notice the difference between 110fps vs 72...nope, so no wouldn't get it cause I'd have to buy a new MB... ups my cost considerably... I think this is the reason bulldozer is still selling despite lukewarm reviews   ....I'd be very curious to see 8120 performance vs a 2500k next year when more games will be supporting more than 4 cores...

Or maybe when you build something new it needs a bit of time to mature? Do you really think AMD wanted to design and build a CPU from the ground up just to smoke current/past benchmarks? Or is it a bad thing to think forward? Intel is doing the same thing, but they have the money to bring new things into the market, like the 3-d transistor, 22nm (and 14nm in the future) when it comes to forward thinking. You cannot totally blame AMD concerning certain issues with BD, because the new instruction sets they developed are not even close to being fully supported (this is to compete with Intel), and BD is based off of a server design. AMD hyped their newest product via different channels than Intel does. When is the last time you saw and AMD commercial on TV? I see Intel hyping their wares all the time on TV, yet the majority of the technologies that they are pushing they themselves did not discover or invent, but they have the resources to bring it to market. Many people forget that if it were not for IBM, Intel OR AMD would not be where they are today, and the other fact that most forget is that Intel and AMD were founded by people who came from the same computer company.

Well if they do it's likely its a 32nm deneb quad on AM3+

Although there is the outside chance they might have PD ready ahead of schedule...

This is worrying. AMD used to be the company that provided good price / performance in the last few years, but now it's Intel.

Phasing out the Phenom II line means that AMD consumers will get an inferior product for the same price in certain price categories. For example, an FX-4100 is worse than a Phenom II X4 955 BE, yet costs the same (at least where I live), and an FX-6100 is worse than a Phenom II X6 1090T.

This effectively means that AMD has also screwed up their pricing.

I hope thet release Piledriver before the stock of Phenom IIs runs out.

Son of a Bulldozer! Why AMD are you axing the deneb and thubans? I was going to get one for my birthday or in May. I always get screwed. mad.gif

If they do this they better bring the price of FX's down because they're not price competitive at all right now. The 8150 needs to be 220 max to be a competitive chip. I mean it's a decent quad with pseudo hyper threading but it's still priced too high for it's performance. That said it's not like Intel is exactly pricing based on performance either. So anyone willing to part with a 1055/1075/1090 in about 4-6 months?

can we keep this on topic. This is a news thread not a what FPS a CPU is getting in a game thread or a OMG AMD sucks Intel is so much better thread.
post #20 of 202
I went to Fry's Electronics today to pick up a few things, and 3 people in front of me had carts full of new computer parts. Each of them had an FX 8120 in the basket. I left scratching my head, apparently everyone loves to say they have 8 cores. So I believe it when they say they sell out fast.
