post #641 of 10602
well i love those facts which were stated . keep them coming .

as far as the 3 channel memory goes i know a benchmark is synthetic but in max mem my amd rig vs hazed intel rig his scores were higher and his fathers i7 930 scores were verry nice but mainly due to the extra 2 gigs .

tests were run using same ram and same timings same clocks the triple chanel was better but also more expensive.

and thank you thats all i was trying to say about the cpu side of things . i wasnt trying to bash amd or hurt fanboys feelings .

i am a fan of raw power and who ever delivers the power.however with said my amd 555 be is powerful as a dual or a quad to an extent,but there is just some things it cant do and i blame software on that ,but more cores would help .

but as far as the coment that intel wont release an 8 core anytime soon i wouldn't bet on it,as bulldozer is being created ,i am sure intel is hard at work as well.

at any rate im keeping my fingers crossed for bulldozer to surpass my expectations,as im sure it will.

http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...-features.html




Also, Asus! There have already been repeated news articles stating that Asus is about to unveil their Crosshair V 990FX at Cebit any day now!

http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...ula-990fx.html


Granted, the initial question was about, will AMD be making any announcements, or discussing anything BD Related....

But, does AMD have anything to say, about those motherboard announcements from MSI and Asus?
I have no idea. The point I was making is that you were not going to hear any groundbreaking info from AMD on Bulldozer at CeBIT. I know a lot of people hyped it up, but I did not. When the marketing guy says "don't get too excited about this" you have to believe him.

All along I have been saying that I was unaware of what was actually being done at CeBIT, but what I did know is that the folks in Germany would not be doing anything that did not have our support.

Sure, motherboard companies can make announcements, but I can't comment on those because a.) it is not my product and b.) I don't know about the product.

I am over in taipei this week. I did a press roundtable and couldn't even talk about a new HP server (SL335s based on AMD Opteron 4000) because, at that exact time, I could not verify that they had actually launched it, even though I knew they should have.

I have to be extremely careful when I talk about anyone else's products because sometimes I know too much and I don't want to screw up.

Any one knows when this new BD chip going on sale? was an official release date published somewhere?

I keep hearing different dates every few months, now I’m hearing April? is it beginning or end of April?

The only official thing that has been said is Q2.

the fact is that black ops and battlefield bad company 2 use alot of cpu and so will the newer games coming out . i understand your concept and amd's stand on hyperthreading i have pounded that same point home many times .

my point was i simply want an amd chip that will score higher then intels in benchmarks. its that simple " AMD>intel =me being :-) "
I guess we'll see in Q2, but as far as your comments about Intel destroying AMD. I looked at some of Tomhardware charts and the AMD chips aren’t scoring that much lower then most of the Intel chips (the affordable ones anyway's). Not sure were you get those comments about the "real world"...

Production Samples: Late Mar-11
Production samples have already been out since December 2010. As far as I see it, they are ahead of schedule.

According to their UPDATED roadmap, Initial production for Bulldozer is expected in April. There is no reason for them to delay launch 2.5 months from the start of production. AMD wants to release it as bad as we want to buy it.

@ Phoenixlight,i think we had some wires crossed bro ,as a x2 it wont run ,as a x4 it runs but it also lags somewhat.

as a quad the 555 or b55 runs great with a few lag spikes,im not sure if the lagg is related to cpu or server or net ,but i have noticed if i clock my 555 up to 3.6 ghz it runs better . i need better cooling to run any higher ,temps are high as it is.

i never said i ran my chip as a quad @ 4.2 ,only as a x2...

They could of brought Sandy Bridge out in October if they wanted to. Then the question is, Where are the motherboards?

Im guessing the motherboards aren't ready based on none at CeBit. Its odd to not have any sample motherboards out yet.
