Can't say staying with the same chipset is a good thing. I desire Ivy Bridge performance in a AMD product, and quick! frown.gif

I can't imagine that AMD will stick with 890 FX with SR. I already find it hard to believe they've left it the way it is.

I can... Pure performance and better multi-gpu scaling will improve with IPC increases, still obviously hampered by the chipset... But SR will sell like hotcakes if everyone gets to keep their AM3+ boards.

thats right... the socket wont affect cpu performance at all

Discrete northbridge + the old PCI-E controller design + crap HyperTransport specification = garbage performance if you have more than one PCI-E card.

I doubt multi-GPU scaling will improve by much. It's already been demonstrated that the 6990 performs much better than CFX 6970s on 990FX...

This is interesting. I was going to sell my 8120 for a 8350 since it was supposed to be the last AM3+ chip, but with this news I might just skip it wait for steamroller instead.

Can you send me the graph / review on that? Interested to read it.

Either way, it's still a win for consumers if they keep their 990FX boards.

My 560 ti's performed on par with a stock 6990/intel. Give or take a few games didn't like it.

Either way, it's still a win for consumers if they keep their 990FX boards.

It's been proven that Bulldozer significantly bottlenecks CFX setups, right?

Look at this here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1213342/return-of-the-return-of-amd-fx-my-ocd-amd-fx-8150-review-with-ocd-6990-daily-results/0_20

FX doesn't bottleneck a 6990 at all.

I saw a YouTube video comparing the 2500k and FX-8150 with a 6990 that found similar results, though I can no longer find it.

Also you can go look at 3DMark11 results on 3dmark.com. A 6990 + FX-81xx will get around 1000 points higher on average than 2x 6970 + FX-81xx despite the 2x 6970 setup theoretically being faster. This is also curiously the exact opposite result you'll often see when comparing Core i5 2500k + 6990 with 2500k + 2x 6970. And 3DMark is just a synthetic.

Sadly it's difficult to find a direct real world comparison.
