bulldozer is a platform, this would be an accurate benchmark of the bulldozer platform am I wrong? even if its beta testing its still benching dozer.
All the products are going for different tweaks

Zambezi is the Gamer-Enthusiast Desktop CPU Line
Valencia is the Entry-Level Server CPU Line
Interlagos is the High-End Server CPU Line


Zambezi is going for the gamer and overclocking enthusiast it will be tweaked for that purpose

Valencia is for entry level servers which I'm guessing are for data and web? and it is tweaked for that

Interlagos is for high-end servers which I'm guessing are for HPCs and it is tweaked for that

They are all using Bulldozer in a way but are tweaked for dedicated/different tasks

No

990X is a Desktop CPU

Bulldozer is a Architecture which
Zambezi/Valencia/Interlagos use

Zambezi is a Desktop CPU
Valencia/Interlagos isn't

To say Bulldozer is a CPU is incorrect it's an architecture

then I am correct in saying this is an early look at some beta testing bench info pertaining to the zambezi processor of the bulldozer platform (which is supposed to be the best performing for gaming)

at this juncture the chip is benching somewhat slower than the Core i7 990X intel's flag ship processor which bulldozer is supposed to be competing with - if your in the market for the best of the best computer hardware with no regard to cost your still going to buy an intel 990x Core i7 processor.

AMD still has some "tweaking" to do before launch so you might expect some improvements in performance still to come.

Only Zambezi....

The Platform for Zambezi is called Scorpius

The Architecture of Zambezi is called Bulldozer

Architecture =/= Platform

Bulldozer is a Foundation not a Platform
The Foundation helps support the Platform

And if you know anything about foundations they can be tweaked for different things

That is just arrogance

It is correct but Engineer Sample Clocks =/= Consumer/Reviewer Sample Clocks

3.2GHz(stock clock) vs 3.8GHz(stock clock)

Technically, bulldozer is the CORE code name. It is not a platform.

1. Unless your name is "Rockefeller" your first statement is meaningless.

2. Until you have final benchmarks at launch, most likely everything you have seen to date is probably not a.) real or b.) accurate or c.) both.

I love this, pwned!!...XD .... I will admit , I wish I had near unlimited funds to get one of intel's overpriced extreme edition CPUs everytime they poop out another one, but my SO would kill me if I did that... was lucky enough to be able get a SB rig and can build a BD rig, only cause I am giving my phenom II rig to the kids to play on..

I can't wait to try out a BD and 7950 crossfired setup...
