8 core with 16 threads? If so, Bulldozer is going to be some serious competition for Intel...Considering it has a clock speed disadvantage here.
LGA2011 won't be any faster than 1155 clock for clock except in the few memory intensive applications, for cores? Well, AMD has that covered already...Going from this and the rough clock speeds, assuming equal clocks then AMD will probably be roughly equal to Intel when its BD vs 2011 8 core.
I'm curious though, how many threads does the average OCN user actually have running simultaneously?
