post #801 of 10602
It's kind of like Sandy Bridge. The dual channel performance on Sandy Bridge exceeds Nehalem's performance sometimes due to a vastly improved memory controller. I'm pretty sure with the AMD FX Series this is the same. Going by JF-AMD's words of ~50% more throughput, I smell dual channel DDR3 elapsing a really nice 20GB/s on AMD if we get really lucky this time around

What is the general pre-order/pricing on stuff like this. When will we find out when Bulldozer is going to be released, when will we know what chips are going to be available, same with the AM3+ mobo's. I just have no idea what is going on, and I'm in need of an upgrade desperately. My 4th core is now defective and running some games on 3 cores is giving me FPS drops.

I want a Crosshair V but have no idea if one is even in the pipeline, I also want a top end BD chip but have no idea what price/performance per module is going to be like? I wish we were given more of an idea.

Sandy Bridge performance is good... it's making me wonder if waiting is going to be worthwhile when I know nothing about BD or AM3+ boards.

As it is we have designed a whole new northbridge with ~50% more throughput. It is like getting a third channel without having to pay for one.

does this apply to servers as well? or is this purely client based systems? (or is this purely server & not client)

The original request was on desktop. Server will be 2 and 4 channel.

yes, however if you can boost throughput by ~50% on client based systems, can it be done via a chipset on server based systems?

Rumor has it Intel is pulling in their Ivy-Bridge roadmap due to Bulldozer

so 50% the readers of KitGuru don't agree as half of them are waiting

According to that article, I could update my BIOS and run a BD

I wonder how it would perform??? a BD in AM3 board, compared to an x4 965 or x6 1090 in games

I am not sure you know what you are asking. The memory controller is in the processor, not the chipset.

Well, this would be a very expensive proposition. If this is true, that is a pretty good indicator of bulldozer's performance, right? They wouldn't spend the money to accelarate a process node move if they didn't need to.

AMD is only supporting BD on AM3+ sockets.
