Good move!

I'm anticipating market domination with Bulldozer, and I HOPE I'M NOT WRONG!

This has got to be the most anticipating year in CPUs!

I will be slobbering on my Bulldozer build if it is even remotely close to Sandy Bridge..
5+ GHz on Air (Can you imagine 8 cores @ 5 GHz?)

World domination.

If this is even remotely true, utter world domination..
(Of course this could be the Server Version of the Chip)
(NOTE: They reported there will DEFINITELY be a dual core Motherboard for Desktops for Bulldozer, all still a rumor though)



Found this just recently, but it looks fake. (Many sites report 50% more performance than i7-950 & Phenom II X6 1100T)




A good Compilation of Info. on Bulldozer!


From a Poster on the Bulldozer Blog...

Quote:

After hearing the early informations about Bulldozer having a shared FPU, I was very worried that your new processor sold as “8-core” or “16-core” will have in fact the performances of a processor with half the claimed number of cores. Now, after learning more details, I am much more relaxed, because in fact Bulldozer has exactly the same amount of FP resources per core as your current processors, they are just grouped together for a core pair. That means that the peak DGEMM/LINPACK throughput will really increase at least proportionally with the claimed number of cores, i.e. by 33%. The actual improvement over the current generation will likely be greater, both because of higher clock frequencies and because of the better scheduling that would allow more applications to reach speeds close to the ideal peak throughput. Still, your competitor claims to have doubled the amount of FP resources per core, so that only Interlagos might be able to match the speed of their best offerings from 2011. Nevertheless, the speed is not everything, I am one of those that might buy a Bulldozer just because it will have fused multiply-add at least a year before the competition, since my applications would greatly benefit from FMA (but I cannot afford a POWER7).

I've been following Bulldozer for a while now and I must say AMD seems to have improved upon their old architecture greatly if the rumors are true.

This was fast however Intel took quite a burdensome financial hit. According to figures supplied by Guardian this will cost them $1 Billion USD to fix this fault. That's quite a hefty financial hit for rushed QA which some speculate was due to OEM's pushing forward the release for "Budget Sandy Bridge".
