Unless there's a mind boggling increase in gaming and transcoding performance at an amazing price point, I'll likely pass for the next year or two.

waiting for benchmarks first ~ I predict 20% improvement over thuban

if it is greater than this I will upgrade
post #35 of 113
x8 vs x6 ~20%?

Or do you mean x6 x6 versions?

I would like to see 20-30% boost at least in the x4 version over current Denebs.

Nothing stays for along time in technology.

I will definitely skip Bulldozer. Even though I wish these x6's folded better. But honestly the sig rig should suffice the next 2 years, so I'll wait and see what happens then.
I believe giganews35 was talking about the BD architecture, rather than the first gen BD. If AMD re-use the BD architecture the same way they have Athlon, then yes, it will be around for a long time to come.

I'm planning on skipping the first gen to wait for next year, my thuban will be two years old then, but I may let myself get caught up in the hype if the "real" benchmarks are out of this world.

Primarily for the reason that my savings priority this year is going to an AMD Brazos netbook.
Depending on my cash flow I may be around for the first gen of Bulldozer, and I will hopefully definitely be around in 2012 for Komodo (2nd gen BD).
Same here
I'll skip the first generation and wait for two years before getting the BD.
Heck , my sig rig isn't even running right now . It's been three months lying in boxes

If BD don't offer me a high improve in performance, I will keep my Thuban and build a SB rig.

As someone else already said, I will have to wait for a while. Wife would kill me if I bought MORE computer parts. I am currently running @ 3.5GHz at stock voltage, will overclock to 4GHz if I ever notice a bottleneck, but everything runs great. Only upgrade I see myself doing anytime this year is perhaps a better video card, but these 5770s are amazing and handle everything I throw at it.

I too am also in the market for a Brazos notebook, so that would be my next big purchase.

Ill get BD if price is right and if increased performance is worth it. If not since I would need a new board either way I will probably try SB.
