Are you still Amped about Bulldozer? - Page 4

post #31 of 65
its a completely new architecture so im pretty excited, but that could also mean that its a complete fail performance wise:O
then again with the new architecture is it still possible to compare core to core performance?

I'm not really amped about it anymore, but it will give me a reason to change my motherboard. I'll probably keep my Athlon 630 for a while. I don't think there's any game that can really bottleneck me since I'm only using 1 monitor @1920x1080.

AMD's Bulldozer will be extremely powerful per core, but I really don't see any reason for me to upgrade to it. Intel will probably be taken by surprise, but they'll release Ivy Bridge just a few months after Bulldozer.

I'm not too excited about it but I REALLY need to upgrade my board so that's exactly what I'll be doing when Bulldozer comes out; upgrade to a 990FX chipset. From there I'll most likely wait for a second gen Bulldozer chip to throw in. And will upgrade to a 7xxx series card as soon as they hit the market, 6xxx seemed like a total waste of money to me.

22nm version of Intel microarchitecture codename Sandy Bridge -- the "tick" following the Sandy Bridge "tock". Products based on Ivy Bridge are expected to be available in the market in 2012. - intel website

i really wouldnt call it 'just a few months after'

I don't think the Phenom II's are bad chips at all. The problem is AMD simply has no high end line. Once they finally fixed their design so that it was comparable to the Core 2 Duo, they just froze in place.

Though I can only speak from a layman's understanding, it seems to me that Intel focused on improving performance of the individual cores and their transport mechanism, while AMD just started adding additional cores. If most software is not fully utilizing three cores, then adding three more does not make a lot of sense to me.

I really hope the white paper on the Bulldozer is accurate and that AMD can finally compete with Intel in the higher range. Nobody likes a monopoly.

They both have insanely powerful video cards at the high end. I'm not sure anyone could really say either company was spanking the other one.

And in the mid-range CPU market, AMD is doing well. They just have no true high end part.

Yup, hoping that it can beat out intel clock for clock. Don't exactly expect it but it would be nice.

They might not be winning at the highest end, but they have arguably better choices in the mid-high end market when it comes to price/performance.

calculated this from one amd slide , BD will have integer boost ~33%, floating p. ~20%
(against k10, per core)
+more cores
+higher speeds
+new instructions
+better/newer silicon technology
+total new architecture

if BD will perform worse than K10, i will eat my hat
