All speculation, of course.


However, do you understand why I believeTurbo based on thermal is has some advantages over TDP? In theory, the CPU could run closer to the edge of stability rather than an defined TDP limit based on workload. Drop the temps.... better performance automatically.
But surly the TDP way would be more suited to datacentre situations where you would be trying to fill the alloted power quota for the server. I'm sure there will be thermal failsafes on the chip.

On the consumer end the temperature limit may be a better way to do it as we tend to care much less about TDP...

I'm sure they didn't difficult overclockers life ... and if that "FX coming back" rumor is true ... giving overclockers a difficult time to achieve certain results would be kind of weird...

... although there can be some tweeking for getting more from less cores...

Lets w8 and see ...

Eh building Hype just like SB did, but soon will get the bombshell like SB got (the K series only unlocks etc)

The enthusiast in me is shrugging at this feature as it will be one of the first things I disable.

If this is As good as it looks, Prepare to see AMD shares Jump to like 20$ a share.

Unless they put a hefty price tag on it. say 500+

If AMD can afford to sell this around 400$ or less, for the 8 core AM3+
Then Prepare to see the CPU market FLIP.

Not to mention Bobcat Spanking on Atom and ARM.

Buy AMD stock Now While its cheap!!!

AMD isn't perfect but neither is Intel,

AMD Bulldozer goes to 11, or is it 9.5?

They put a 5% protective rail on the CPU, sounds like a Flux Capacitor Governor, lol, which prevents users from ever reaching the TDP, which isn't a bad thing, but definitely not coming off as 11.

Basically he found a cool way of rewording Turbo Core / Turbo Boost technology to give it a little more hype, it's nothing new however, sorry AMD, not impressed...

The ability to shut down power to unused cores, lowering power consumption, however, is new, and very nice, bravo AMD, or should I say Brazo? (The platform it was truly designed for?)

I think for the client Desktop computers, which tends to be bought more used by Enthusiast, programmers, etc, as most businesses are way to cheap to put in an 8 core system in an employees Desktop, let alone schools, this marketing isn't going to reach the lovers it should have been created for!

Enthusiast!

If the 50% rumored gain over the current Phenom II X6 & i7 950 is true, that's a decent gain, but definitely not the gain some of us were hoping for, then AMD may wrangle in a few enthusiast after all, power folders, Overclockers like us, etc..

Much yet remains to be seen about Bulldozer, let's just hope there aren't any major design flaws with the Main Boards like Sandy Bridge has presently.. (ouch!)

I'm leaning toward "hopeful" & "promising" with Bulldozer, but I'm not going to bet the farm on it, no way...

In a nutshell, what I'm really trying to say here is, nice read, but failed to reach the intended target, the Enthusiast, which are all about the clock speed, +500 MHz isn't something new and you are STILL holding the bag too tight, the cats inside are starting to scratch and claw (buying up Sandy Bridge), put up some real specs or zip it already!

I was talking about this with real investors, they say your advice is worthless, AMD's dept to income ratios are sick, have been that way for too long...

You need to get inside information before you make a statement like that, even if Bulldozer is the bomb, doubtful here, I think AMD has made more money in the server market in years past, however, since many big businesses already have their servers, your prediction may be far off base.

Granted Bobcat may make some splash, it's GPU in the CPU isn't all that and a bag of chips, not really. lol
