The city centres ok, but the outskirts are rather meh.

But the worst part is the weather. Britains not great for weather, and it just gets worse the further north you go.

I wish I lived in Edinburgh, you would be a very interesting person to meet.
Obviously I can get access to parts if I want them, but I would never take parts away from validation or qualification, so I would have access to older steppings if I wanted them.

But there are 2 big issues:

1. What do I plug them into? Need a platform to run them
2. When would I do this? I am really pressed for time. I am in europe for 2 weeks for training our sales teams, then in the states for a week in CA and a week in boston, then back to europe for 2 weeks for (finally) a vacation. time is more precious than anything, so when I have free time, I want to be on my bike.

Pretty sure I could walk down the aisle and get a valencia from the product manager and get a BIOS from our enablement team so I could build a system, but I just have so many other things on my plate that I can't really spend the time doing that. I am guessing Q4 is a good time to build one after all of the launches are over, the product is ramping and I can finally kick back with a beer and build a system.

Shouldn't you be getting ready for enhanced Bulldozer then?

...no rest for the wicked....

When I do I am looking for an 8-core Opteron 4200 EE (35W).
1- that new 4200 EE series will replace your "old" 1389, i suppose
2- will Opterons produced in new "SuperEE" consumption class ? (<) 20W

1. Yes. But the 1389 might live on in another aoplication server. Have some thoughts about that, just not a lot of time.

2. We already have a host of special parts available that are "off roadmap" for our current customers. We have had some customers that want custom TDPs so that they can manage to a power budget and fill every slot in the rack with servers.

When we introduce Bulldozer we will have TDP capping, so that customers can set their own TDP (lower, not higher) and the processor will run at the highest clock speed within that TDP range. For instance, if you have a 35W EE part and you are regularly drawing only 15-20W per processor in power, you could make your own super EE part at 20W and still be running at base frequency. It all depends on the your workload.

My workloads are real lightweight, so a 20W TDP is probably where I will set mine.

That is probably one of the best features from AMD I've seen yet.

I think it was Foxconn on the Quatum Force Destoryer board; but they had Software that would "guestimate" (it might have been a bit better than that) your "actual TDP" (as in how much of your TDP was really being used.)

Most of the time, it was always below the listed number (IE, 95w TDP parts running in the 50-65w range)

Sounds great for servers, but I feel a lot of people on this site would want the opposite for the purpose of overclocking w/ turboCORE. Though, I completely understand you not having the details on what the desktop guys are planning.

I really hope Bulldozer matches up well against the competition so the situation looks just like in the GPU market.

Meh, i have heard in many sites some rumors that the top models from bulldozer are going to get delayed? like 4 weeks till "release" and we dont have even single reliable benchmark from this urban legend called Bulldozer.
