So it's possible AMD could throw a curve ball and surprise everyone with an announcement of either (A) an earlier launch or (B) another delay. Nobody knows, we can only wait to hear something official from AMD.

Sad thing is that the mods have probably lost interest in this thread..

Well, what else can be said on the subject? With the help of JF we atlest know that there wouldn't be any real benchmarks and we can't possibly know the launch date (remember "launch date and benchmarks on the launch date" thing ) so that leaves us with nothing else except to wait.

There is no point in this thread for now ...

Knowing all this tells you one thing for sure, you can make it look worse or make it look better all depending on your knowledge of the chip and or your intentions.

As far as PI it's an antiquated bench and has not been AMD's strong point for quite some time.

Granted some results shown tend to lead to the fact that 1m times are bad but looking at the bigger picture we also know that in many cases you can validate 1000mhz higher in many cases with BD, which would point to the fact that you can run 1m at alot faster speeds than current AMD tech.

Things that make you go hmm like what kind of times will we see at 8 gig or even comparing BD to deneb/thuban when same cooling is used.
interesting

I don't disagree, I just meant that in the quoted post I did not see anything that was attacking John

Maybe this should be one of those threads that you can only post after having X amount of post's under your belt

If the launch date changes, nobody is allowed to make a statement about the the new date until PR/AR has approved it and usually it is a senior executive that makes the statement because launch dates and shipping dates have implications for wall street.

Earlier this year, when we believe that the launch date was Q2 for client and Q3 for server, every time I was asked, that is what I said. If you were anal-retentive enough to read all of my posts, you would see there was a point where I stopped answering that question. I knew the launch date had changed, but a new one had not been communicated publicly yet.



That was not a lie. At the time that statement was made, that was the expectation.

Have you ever flown on a plane? This afternoon I have a 3:45 flight. The airline has told me, ever since I booked the flight, that it leaves at 3:45. If I end up leaving Austin at 4:30, has the airline flat out lied to me? No. Things change.
I get what you mean,but a flight delay of about an hour or less is no big deal. Intel SB has been out for 8 months,while BD has been delayed since June.

You took it as an attack? Pehaps you should read it again.
I can understand him being a bit angry or fed up though,he has a lot to deal with.

I didn't see an attack either.

However, people need to get it into their heads that I am passing off the most accurate information at any given time. I realize that we are not shipping according to the original schedules, but that is part of life. Things can change.

I look at it like a football game. there are those that love to watch the game, see the interaction, watch the teams go up and down, and then at the end, there is a final score. Others just want the final score. If my bears are up by 14 in the first half and lose to my wife's saints at the end (or as she puts it "as it was intended"), that does not mean that they were not leading at one point in the game or that the statement "the bears are ahead" is either misleading or a lie. It is the truth at that point in the game.

I have not lied, I have not mislead people. But I have been wrong. That I will admit to because I am human. We have all been wrong.

I have always maintained that a.) people should buy what they want and b.) people should buy when they want.

Agreed, but he chooses, of all posts, to quote mine over the others?

Seems he wanted to make an example of me, even though my post is essentially absolving him of his faults. That's why I didn't understand it. And if you read my post you will see my tone is benevolent, not antagonistic.

Anyway I'll let it slide, JF has seen alot of nonsense thrown his way, he's human after all.
