If I wait for Bulldozer

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I purchased http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-428-_-Product
thinking I was going with Sandy Bridge. If BD comes out and is awesome, would that memory I just bought work with a BD mobo?

Ignore that, it is marketing hype to try and get the fewer AMD users to buy more expensive, ripoff RAM. It may also be related to the 1.65V memory voltage limit nonexistent on AMD (so far).

What he said.

It's just marketing. Kind of like how there's AMD Black Edition RAM. It's all RAM in the end. Just different timings, voltages, speeds, etc. It's not like it's programmed for a certain CPU.

But correct me if I'm wrong
