Will be cheap*** lol messed up like to upgrade a mobo and cpu shud only cost 300-400 bux imo
If it is too expensive, I'll just stay with my 790FX and get a Thuban, or maybe, get a 990FX and a Thuban. If not, I will take the new platform.

SR5690, SR5670 and SR5650 all work fine.

Sorry if this has been answered 1 million times, but what is the main performance we should see from Bulldozer? like single threading?

All we have said is that IPC will be higher and single threaded performance will be higher. Not by how much.

I'd wait for actual benchmarks to see if it is even a legitament enough to justify a chipset change. It is being put out there like fermi did, and once it was released nearly everyone was disappointed.

I would like to know more about what the new platform is going to be like. If the SB/NB chips are even comparible to intel's current gen. You can always have a great CPU, but you also need a good platform to back it.

Uhm...okay....

First, justify a new chipset??? The new SOCKET comes with backwards compatibility for all the current AM3 CPU's so if you have a current AM3 processor and you want a new motherboard, you can do that. However, the newer CPU's will require that new socket which is to be understandable.

Waiting for benchmarks is what we're all going to do but even then what matters more is the price of the chip.

Like fermi?? I'm not getting that vibe at all. Here's the deal, with both AMD and Intel being on the verge of releasing their new CPU's, it would be silly to really disclose all of your information at once. Also, the best way to "keep" the attention of people is to give them tidbits of information over a period of time instead of everything at once. The problem with Fermi is that it's performance vs everything else was terrible. It wasn't quite a disappointment in the performance department though but it was talked up too much.

I do agree that the NB performance should be increased. For instance, when compared to the current gen northbridge performance at say 2.6Ghz should be the performance level of the next gen northbridge at 2.0Ghz.

With the last part of your statement, AMD has had a great platform backing their chips since the release of the 7 series chipset with the SB750 and it's derivatives. While it is true that you really need a northbridge clock of at least 2.6+Ghz to get the most of benchmarks, it still does a great job at stock settings.

Reading from Bulldozer questions part 3
"we have already stated publicly that Bulldozer single threaded performance is expected to be higher than our current core architectures."

Is this referring to a comparison to 1 core vs 1 core or your best line up CPU right now vs the top Bulldozer line up?

I'm just hoping they move some of the features of the current opteron server mainboards to "Bulldozer" client mainboards when they are released next year - like quad channel ddr3, sata 3, usb3, ht3.1 @ 3.2ghz, etc
