Is that why AMD has such a small market share?
aaah, look who we have here.. Mr.Kingsley-Hughes

I asked myself long time ago, why he doesnt have intel inside logo on his photo...

Something I can make here however is Poutine ("chips" with cheese curds and gravy).

Also surprisingly, I haven't had a Full English Breakfast, Haggis, Black Pudding yet and I've been here for like 6 months now. Although I have eaten tripe (according to my friends that's considered "dog food", is that true?) and a blood sausage similar to black pudding.
Didn't think you were British, just saying we're everywhere!

"Motts Clamato" and the "Caesar", sound horrible to my English taste buds, but then i'm not very adventurous with food.

As for Haggis, Black Pudding (is a sauage made of dried blood) and tripe, i've been here 37yrs and i've never had them either. I'd try Haggis, but I wouldn't give tripe to a dog, do you know what it is? Anyway these aren't normal foods, they're the sort of thing some ones asks a foreigner to try to make them cringe knowing full well that no one here eats them either. Like frogs legs, snails, pie and mash, and jellied eels.

Ahhh sorry I guess I construed it the wrong way.

What about marmite? You guys eat that don't you? Surprisingly I actually tried it in my first week here. It's alright, but not something I'd go out of my way to get though.

I actually do know what haggis, black pudding and tripe are. I've had tripe (I know it's cow stomach) steamed with a bit of sauce/garnish and marinated tripe as well. My friends told me that's what you feed to dogs and it's disgusting that I eat it, but hey at least I'm not wasting any part of the cow. Also Black pudding, actually exists in some form in many cultures too, I know for sure that the Chinese and Koreans have versions of "blood sausage" which are apparently similar to black pudding.

For me, I'm willing to try everything at least once. I've eaten things like Chicken feet, bison, venison (deer), and Ostrich meat. Although I haven't tried balut yet (it's a Filipino delicacy, search it up on google but warning the picture/description are pretty graphic you have been warned).

Anyways, back on topic..... Here's a good question, what kind of real world (science/industry) performance improvements are we looking at in regards to the AVX instruction set included in the BD chips (assuming programs have been compiled properly to take advantage of such instructions)?

Thread Starter 
The simple answer is that AVX-256 will net you no appreciable differnence from AVX-128 and no appreciable difference from 128-bit FPUs if you are not recompiling code.

Where you get the bit impact from recompiling is taking advantage of the FMA4 instructions.

Otherwise, the benefit is that we have 2X the 128-bit FPU capability of the competition.

John,

I have a dream... Is there any chance that Dirk Meyer will be the one to launch Bulldozer?

I don't know how much he influenced the design, but from my point of view, he deserved that!

This is the BD blog thread right... somehow, I see a lot of the usual bickering and speculation in here

Anyway a new blog post is up (reachable through JF's sig) called "The Cool Kids". In there John links to three other blogs written by AMD engineers that are very interesting reads. The one about the new integer EX unit is especially good and debunks the idea I've seen many times around here that AMD is only adding more slow cores with BD and doesn't care about IPC. Also frequency is mentioned many times. I have no doubt BD will be a speed demon.

Give the three a read. All that is left to be seen is if this new inventive design efficiently translates to cold hard performance. Only a little over a month till 2Q ...

Hi! I'm a nub. But at 60 pages, given such a relevant thread. I'd suggest trimming the fat a bit ah.

Or not.
