of course, in rendering will be Zambezi monster simillary with Gulftown. In single thread, meaning, operations about 75-80% as core i7 first generation.

[QUOTE=purpleannex;12823310]BD doesn't just come in an 8 core variation, if you only want to game, yet still make use of BD's new architecture, you can buy a quad core.

I've heard no rumour that BD will be 50% faster than a 2600k.

AMD have said the 8 core has 50% more though put than a 6 core thuban.[/QUOTE]

No. We said that a 16-core Interlagos has 50% more throughput than a 12-core Magny Cours. And that is in server workloads. Please don't confuse the two.

I did some quick calculations of my finances and I'm sad to say that I won't be able to jump on the BD platform unless I can get a BD system for ~$1100. I was originally aiming for getting my hands on the 6 core system and toss in a 5850 (eventually dual 5850's for BOINC crunching). Just because I know the 8 core chip will likely be significantly more expensive for it's price since it's the flagship chip in the lineup. I really hope that the chip itself and associated mobo's/other parts are cheap.

Might just jump onto the Llano when it comes out in Jul instead. I'm getting pretty excited about it TBH just from what I've been reading/seeing.

PS: John I can totally wait, I'm pretty patient and plus I don't have the money to buy a system right now anyways.

PPS: If anyone cares, I've decided to invest in a motorcycle instead of getting a new computer and from a cursory look; after the Motorcycle Safety course, safety gear, and the actual bike itself (probably going to start off with a used 250cc) I'm looking at ~$8000 down the drain and that's not even considering insurance yet (which will probably be expensive too since I'm under 24 and part of the "high risk" cohort for collisions). I'm still going to ride my mountain bike though, after all it's good exercise and I need to keep my figure.

It’s just that you have not been very helpful or truthful?
what is your problem ?

your post shows that somebody from asus support said "it will work",
but i would not put my hand in fire - no guarantee here.

what if this combination will limit BD performance ? will you be happy to use it ?
who you gonna blame, if my words come true ? asus ? amd ?

oficially it is not supported. - that means, your guarantee is at risk..
think about it

All I asked is will BD work in a AM3 socket ?
And then I asked will a BD fit in a AM3 socket ?
And all got was that its not supported !
Not very helpful and not very truthful !

i remember months ago , has been discussed or told (IIRC people from AMD told that) -
- it is possible to make bd backward compatible - BUT expect performance drop

this information is well known, you should remember


for example, intel changes sockets sometimes each year, or less.. so what ?

I strongly suggest you understand the definition of "support" before spewing insults.

John, thanks for doing what you do. It's gotta be downright frustrating dealing with the often ungrateful, ignorant and horribly biased members of these hardware communities.
