FX is a MAJOR downgrade from Phenom 2 - Page 2  

post #11 of 32
Very very late......And why the hell did this warrant a new thread? There are dozens of threads on OCN about the failure of BD.......Me thinks its a troll!

I kinda think it might be troll bait as well cause a similar thread was just locked over at HardOCP yesterday. Different screen name but the same premise. OP discovered on Anand that Bulldozer sucks.

But thats ok. It gives me yet another opportunity to continue my crusade to enlighten those that hateth on the Bulldozer. thumbsupsmiley.png

Bahaha. I dont think Piledriver will be a flop. It'll be better than BD, but it wont compare to Ivy. Although it may do well against Sandy.

Seems that my flux capacitor working again. Now if I can go back 2 more months and not by all this stuff in anticipation for bulldozer I'll be golden.

Look at the 8150 compared to the 2500K and youre talking a difference around 25-30%. Piledriver is looking like it could be 20% improvement over Bulldozer and if thats so and they come out with $200 price points and dont try to compete with the $330 i7's, I think theyll compete very well. A $200 Black Edition Piledriver thats less than 10% slower than the $250 i5 would be a very viable alternative to Intel. The hope with Piledriver is not that itll be better than Intel but just that its fast enough to compete with Intel so we can finally have a competitive processor market again. Thats good for everybody but especially us enthusiasts.

Well you better hope it does. If Piledriver is a flop, Intel will be 2 full generations ahead of AMD. You like Intel making you buy the $225 Sandy Bridge proc minimum in order to overclock more than a few MHz? Or making you buy the $250 Ivy Bridge proc? When Phenom II was nipping at Intel's heels, you could overclock even their $50 Pentium dual cores and very well too. Now that AMD isnt really competition for them, you get this crap. If Intel pulls ahead by another generation, it wont be pretty for us enthusiasts. Intel fans should be standing shoulder to shoulder with us in hoping for a good showing from Piledriver.
