If we were to estimate a Bulldozer Build cost... - Page 2

post #11 of 26
I find it odd that AMD did not list the high end socket from Intel in their graph...

Going off that I'll assume around $300 for the 8 core BD chip, then Intel will come with their 6 and 8 core chips with HT at around $400-$1000...

I'm sort of confused on why AMD is pricing their 8 core "high end" chip at the same level as Intels soon to be 3rd strongest offering on a mainstream chipset...

Because AMD aims Bulldozer to compete with Sandy Bridge.

Have nothing but great things to say about the Thuban series CPUs, I will be going Bulldozer for my main rig down the line.

Will have the Thuban as a server

LOL! I don't! AMD are comparing their highest 8 core NEW Bulldozer CPU to a Sandy Bridge, the normal i7's and above are far higher up that graph, AMD does not have a prayer of achiving Intel's greatness! /fanboi

depending if bulldozer comes out quick enough and is cheaper but still competitive against sandy bridge i might just get it

Not trying to start a flame war, but those Bulldozer CHIPS ARE EXPENSIVE to get on par with i5/i7...I know it's OEM, but still, $220'ish ($180 for mine) for a 2500K is the best bang for your buck...

I am just amazed why it's so expensive...

All i need is a motherboard and CPU. If AMD can't give some serious CPU power for less than the price of a 2500k, then they lose!

Most i7s fall below the Sandy Bridge platform. Most that are not 6 Cores.
