2 of the 3 1st gen FX will be factory clocked at 4Ghz an 4.2Ghz with the third being 3.8Ghz an they will have integrated 1866Mhz memory controllers so I if you do want to base things off clock speeds then that right is showing promise.

That still doesn't make any sense - you first say BD will be faster because most current applications do not support multiple cores. Then you go on to say that things would be even if they did utilize multiple cores - however, BD has more cores than SB and thus should be faster in multi-threaded apps. It's completetly contradictory.

First of all, you're pulling those numbers out of thin air - that has never been confirmed. Second, I never said anything about clock speed. What matters is instructions per clock. See Pentium 4 for proof of concept.

Those of you waiting for Bulldozer performance results from Computex, I'm afraid we're not going to see anything representative of final hardware. I did hear that the upcoming B2 stepping would restore performance to Bulldozer's original targets, however it's unclear how those compare to Sandy Bridge. The other thing I did hear at the show floor regarding Bulldozer was about its clock speed. Current B1 stepping parts are easily hitting 3.8GHz which is what the high end SKU may actually ship at (with turbo support up to 4.2GHz). I'm waiting for more confirmation but it sounds like Bulldozer will at least clock very high.

Never confirmed, as I said. Not to mention he pulled a 4GHz and 4.2GHz speed out there too. Thanks for the back up!

Your not getting what I'm getting at. I'm saying that core vs core they are probably equal, but I feel that because of software BD will have the edge because of it's ability to reallocate resources an it's higher speed memory controller. What I meant is since mutlicore software is still rare that it's going to be the little things that make the difference in the BD vs i7 debate. Like reallocate-able resources and a 1866Mhz memory controller. That's why I bought 1866Mhz DIMMs so that i could get full use of that controller.

I'm still curious as to why they picked the 950 to call out. There's more 9xx's and now SB.

But all this talk about Bulldozer and even Llano is making me want to build a full AMD rig.

Perhaps that was their Original Performance target during 2009 before they transitioned to the 32nm Process.
