Bulldozer vs Sandy Bridge - Page 4

post #31 of 53
Should be interesting to see how it pans out.
I'm hoping for Bulldozer, but I've been using AMD since the 1.2 T-bird came out..

I find it intriguing how a company with 1/8 the workforce can remain as competitive as they do.

I was very much interested in Bulldozer until I realized I needed to run OSX (different story.) Anyways, to the op; you're best waiting for BD to come out. In my opinion I think while SB introduced some new features (EFI[on mainstream computers]) it left many things to be desired (native USB 3.0 support.) In terms of future proofing BD looks to be the better option with it's higher core count (along with a TDP of an estimated 95 watts), that being said Sandy Bridge will probably be more energy efficient (The entire release was based on making the older stuff slightly better). So it all depends on what you want raw performance, or something that while being quite evolved that will show it's age more quickly. Also keep in mind none of us really know any more than you (and everyones biased to a degree), while we can feel that these snippets of "news" and speculation offer us a concrete grasp; they don't. In short, buy when you feel you need to upgrade; something better is always around the corner.

your money would be better spent on new gpu/s, wait and see what BD is all about before you buy, get gpu/s now.

AMD must be expecting great things for BD as they are resurrecting the FX name!!!! What could this mean? Well for me the FX name stands for extreme performance, does this mean AMD will return to the x86 fight at the top end? It looks like it to me.

I always supported AMD. Never had an Intel. I had a buyer and everything for my AMD rig right now and was switching to Intel. At the last second, I canceled everything. I want to give AMD's a last chance with Bulldozer. It's not like I need more power, I'm just a GEEEK . I want everything and I want to overclock and try something new. I'll wait Bulldozer, if it's not worth I'll grab a 8 core ivy bridge (or 16 ) and call it a day for couple years.

I rummaged through the news threads here and there were many things. One saying that bulldozer will be as good as the 980x and another saying that it will be 2x more powerful than the current i7's.

Tech is Tech guys. I own Intel and AMD builds. Lets face it even though Intel has been coming out on top, AMD is the competition bringing the prices down and vise verse if Bulldozer suddenly stomps Intel into the dirt.

I'm really stuck between going sandy or waiting for bulldozer as well but I'm going to sit it out with my 955 and wait until the results come around. I'm sure if AMD is going to be pumping out an FX chip it will come very close or beat the best Intel has to offer, but as usual expect AMD FX to have a $1000 face value on it. I'm very happy with this build because at the time I bought the mobo/cpu the price just simply couldn't be beaten.

if it's a MUST to upgrade.... do it with your GPU only
Wait for Bulldozer to compare your real choices not virtual....
