Not entirely. But AMD isn't as good as everyone says they are.
It seems like they're too focused on releasing products that will be better than the last gen's competition. I.E., making Phenom II compete with Core 2's, and not Core series. And from what I've read about Bulldozer, it sounds almost as if they're making it compete with the Core series instead of Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge. :/

Wrong

You will be able to push the DMI on boards that allow it

In gaming the Q holds a good lead on the X6. In encoding and such those extra cores help a lot

It would be great if Intel didn't kill overclocking (as it has said it would).

Do you have a link to any info on this?

You probably are confused.

Bulldozer is a new design, and is supposed to surpass all current intel chips in performance (including the 1366 980x's). Being AMD, it'll be priced very competitively.

Stock chips will clock 3.5ghz stock, and a .5ghz turbo on all cores. 8 core chips.

It'll fit on the same am3 socket currently used. No new mobo or ram needed.

Very exciting!

It will not fit in current mobo's. This has been confirmed. It will be called AM3+.

And where are you seeing it will beat a 980x. This is huge speculation on yours or someone elses part.

You're right. Pure speculation. 8 true cores running at 4ghz, is going to be beastly.

The goal is not to match current intel specs. The goal is to bulldoze them.



Time will tell for sure...

I hope it does! Competition is a good thing. We (the consumers) win!
