Advantage: higher IGP performance, potential for exploiting the GPU to do highly-parallel workloads.
Disadvantage: GPU generates heat, potentially affecting CPU overclocks.

CPU tech is evolutionary. Vishera/Piledriver hopefully will be out by Q4 '12.

The original goal of BD was higher CPU speeds and lower power but the Fab process took much longer to sort than anyone expected. Piledriver is a step in the right direction.

You need to read the articles instead of just the titles and last page of comments...

We haven't seen this since 2005. Why everyone is finally realizing this i don't know.

I like the 2500k,2600k people who are constantly on these type of threads bashing AMD in some regard. Why do u even care about Bulldozer or PileDriver anymore, u already made the choice to go to Intel so why can't u be happy with your platform.You are like the US Military wanting to have your nose and opinion in affairs you don't understand half the time. AMD buyers sometimes don't need the fastest, They just like to support AMD, get a good price, and get something that will allow them to do what 95 percent of population does.

I support both companies. I dont have to end up with a close mind that way.

Netburst 2.0. At least they are starting to get a handle on the TDPs. Hopefully they can keep that up going forward past piledriver.

People say this yet they never seem to realise that Netburst actually was pretty good in its Northwood version, Prescott (Which took it to extremes even BD doesn't come close to reaching) was the failure chip. If GF gets the 32nm process under control, then Zambezi would be good because while IPC would be low it'd clock a lot higher, use less power and latencies would go down, and performance would go up. The whole long pipeline and high clock speeds thing works best when you have a good process to use it on, it also doesn't help that SB is so good, normally a chip with its pipeline length would struggle to get too far above 4Ghz on air, but the process is awesome.

I for one like playing with a FSB and multiplier. Tuning in the whole system like a carb on a muscle car. I actually felt Intel turned its back on the overclock community when you had to pay extra to play with settings. Then again I overclocked my 70MHz Pentium with a paperclip and a $1.99 fan from Radio Shack. It's not about performance its about entertainment and AMD is fun. 2cents.gif
