thats just a diagram of the different cored cpu's they are bringing out... nothing changed in that department. has nothing to do with performance

better live up to the hype, or else I'm gunna have to send wayne brady to choke a *****.

I'm very surprised that people trust this

We have just received a photo of what sender claims to be an engineering sample of AMD Bulldozer (Zambezi) Quad Core processor benchmark score table.

BD will be competing with whatevers out at the same time for the same price. If Intel launch IB in Q2 then it will be competing with IB, but IB isn't meant to launch until Q4 though more likely 2012.

If that's real and released soon, I'm glad and will be upgrading this year after all.

BTW I'm somewhat confused, wasn't Zambezi meant to be a 8 core chip, or is this a 2 module 4 core version of the chip that they're testing?

the article says "amd bulldozer quad core processor". there's supposed to be 4, 6, and 8 core bulldozer processors. 2 modules = 4cores, 3 modules = 6 cores, 4modules = 8 cores.

^^ THIS!

I fail to see how it is physically possible for any product (BD or otherwise) to compete with something that will be released in the future. When BD shows up people will compare it to what is currently available and make their decision using whatever metric they see fit. Something better always comes out eventually.

However... I am seeing a trend here... people seem to have no problem comparing SB to Phenom II and stating (correctly I might add) that it wipes the floor with AMD, but then once any rumor shows up that BD MAY be faster than Sandy they are quick to say "oh, well BD is competing with IB anyway so this rumor has no meaning even if true..."

Which is it??

Tech should always be compared with what is available at the time. Period

If that's the case, and these "benchmarks" results are similar or real, AMD will finally kick Intel up the backside bang for buck-wise and I'll be one of the first to get the 8 core Bulldozer when it's out.

I wonder what the hell they're gonna do with all their remaining Phenoms/Athlons though, maybe have a fire sale (hexacores for £100ish, quads for £80ish and Athlons for £50 and less) oh well, one can hope.

According to this slide (assuming 4 integer cores), Bulldozer beats Sandy Bridge clock for clock. Ivy Bridge is just a die shrink of Sandy Bridge with increased performance coming from increased clock speed. If bulldozer overclocks well, this increase in clockspeed could be negated.

What the situation the becomes is this: if it is single-threaded, Bulldozer will have the clock for clock advantage, if it is multithreaded, Bulldozer will have the real integer core advantage. Put another way, Ivy could hope to win the single-thread performance crown by increasing clockspeed, but wouldn't have a chance in the multi-threaded arena (the Bulldozer design offers eight real threads, if Intel wanted to comptete, they would have to have more than four cores which would increase die size and cut profits. With AMD releasing a 8-module, 16-"core" processor, it doesn't seem that it would feasible to make something even larger).

All that said, I am skeptical of this "leak".

Also Phenom II is ooollldddd tech
BD is a completely new architecture etc So I guess we cannot truly compare Intel's new architecture when it comes out to AMD's because they simply come out at different times.
Like Core 2 Quad came out the same time as the Phenom II range, yet we are comparing i7/SB now to Phenom II's still, which is several generations behind.
