Make a wise choice about the products you write about. Or you could always use the Titanic, for instance. What does the Titanic and bulldozer have in common? They both sank on their maiden voyage.

Lol you have NO idea what you are talking about. We, pc enthusiast, make such a small % of sales. Bd is by no means a failure, a let down, yes but not a failure.

This would be interesting to learn about. There's a member on here who found out, using a 4-way GTX 680 setup (Ivy setup), that playing games at an ultra hi-res can cause a bottleneck in the PCI-E lanes; he tested that by switching from PCI-E 2.0 to 3.0, so I would be very interested in learning at what point does PCI-E 2.0 start to become a bottleneck in regards to screen resolutions and such.

I'll just stick to my 955 c3. What really erks me is that AMD is really out of the enthusiast CPU line up? C'mon!!!mad.gif

well, you can't really accept that it's a failure because you are using it, don't want a failure cpu right?
the fact is, phenom ii is better in every aspect including the price compared to it's bulldozer counterpart,
nobody in the right mind will buy an x4 or x6 bulldozer cpu.

you can justify buying an x8 bulldozer because there is no x8 phenom ii, but what if there is?

My 965BE wasn't better in every aspect and neither was my 2500k. And as for the last part, offensive and impolite to those that did buy x4 and x6 bulldozer cpus.
