It is taking as long as it takes.

Last year we said 2011. Then we said Q2 for client, Q3 for server. That continues to be the timeframe.

People are getting too impatient and thinking that there is some behind the scenes thing going on. The reality is that things continue to run on the same schedules.

We are following the exact same process as we always do. And actually saying more about the processor than we normally do. We never release the data you are all demanding prior to launch. Why should this be any different?

It's like telling a three year old that it will be christmas soon on January 1st, they'll ask you everyday if it's christmas yet, no matter how many times you say wait. It would've been easier for users if they only heard about the new product 1 month before, you'd still have the fervor of expectation, but without the 2 year build up and immense dissapointment if it's only average. With a 1 month build up people would soon forget its crap. As it is, it better be the dogs or AMD will never live it down.

LOL, if they would have waited a month before AMD would have continued to lose marketshare due to "no new showings from AMD camp"
People would get all their intel upgrades and new intel PC's in the meantime and by the time BD came out, it would have been too late cuz the noone knew about it early enough =P

You know, I honnestly think the chip is already being produced by AMD and is being stock in some warehouse. AMD is probably just liquidating their current stock before releasing their new CPU. I think most company's will think of $$$$$ way before any impression they leave on a small group of individual's, called "CPU entusiast".

Regardless of all this, if June if the actual release date of this new CPU, it will just gives me more time to finish my basement, install a home entertainment center and wait for this 'hopefully' amazing CPU in order to build my dream AMD/ATI system and then lock myself in the basement until the end of the world arrives in 2012.

The other alternative is that I loose patience and just buy a 6 core Phenom II CPU... regardless the prices just keep droping every week.

Man the bacon smells good in my house!!! and the beer tastes even better.

Lol.... I might end up using my next rig (BD or if I can't acquire enough currency, a Llano) as a "space heater" for my room/hallway or basement. It's likely going to be running scientific projects 16 hours a day, when I'm not using the rig for work or gaming.

I've got it pretty figured out, crunch numbers and use the waste heat to heat up the basement/room/house saving me a bit of money on heating but being neutral from the electricity usage (except I can feel slightly better because as a by product of the "heating" I'm advancing science).

Read more threads/posts, it seems this is already happening, people on here are fed up waiting for BD after seeing what SB can do.

I have noticed this also. I plan on upgrading to either Bulldozer or Sandybridge dont feel like waiting for Ivybridge. I wanna see what BD can do in multithread apps in particular video encoding if the 6 and 8 core BD can beat the i7 2600k at video encoding AMD has my money. JF-AMD can only say so much otherwise he might be looking for a new job if he says too much.

Well, it's official..just got my study for the AMD FX X8 8-Core Processor box art. So it looks like that's the naming scheme.

Honestly, I would love a "Phenom" or "Athlon" in front of it.

JF: I noticed that all the box arts were white, black, and red for the X8 and white yellow and orange for the X4...is AMD retiring the green color?

AMD FX X4 4-Core Processor

AMD FX X6 6-Core Processor

I dunno...I really miss the "Athlon" or "Phenom" being in there...

That box art isn't real... is it? Also if AMD strictly told me it was coming out on January 1st I would check online every day for a leak but I sure wouldn't ask when its coming out again. Then again... we all hate delays (even of a day or two) more than we hate waiting for a concrete date to expect it on. I'm sure BD will have something it will be better at than SB and one of the things will be a better looking box.
