so here is my prediction....bulldozer will in actual fact beat sandybridge, before anyone says it...im not an amd fanboy, i actually have never owned an amd processor, but have read some very interesting things about the bulldozer and am excited to see what its like, i was literally on the verge of buying an i5 2500k but....have decided to wait and see what amd's offering will be like

Rumors and wishful thinking at this point. Show me the chips and the benches and I'll believe it.

Just rumors but I heard from a reliable site (forgot the name, its in the latest industry news thing) that AMD held a conference of some sort with its partners and released some tech specs, which in turn were 50% faster than i7's.

Seeing as how Sandy is only 10% or so faster than Nehalem by and large...I don't believe that at all.

I am hoping bulldozer will shock everyone and be the super chip everyone wants it to be.

So because its not your favorite company you don't believe it? lol. Just give it a chance.

We're all going to have to wait and see but I'm sure AMD will offer good value and competitive prices like they have in the past. Die shrink and smaller manufacturing process and some other new innovations could result in significant performance increases for BD. Intel are moving fast and doing really well with SB and IB and will be hard to catch.

No because AMD has yet to compete with Nehalem. Skipping a generation is incredibly unlikely IMHO. I also remember the disaster that Phenom I was.

BTW-my last rig was a 1055T that I moved as it didn't fold as well as I wanted. I buy what performs. Brand favoritism has nada to do with it.

I hope Bulldozer is awesome. DRM integrated onto the CPU, and paying extra for a K series just so you can overclock is a grim future for computer hardware.

Get serious if it's on par with 1366 i7s no one will buy it. It will have to compete with SB or be faster or it will be a massive disappointment.

Ahh, this kind of thread will only spread more speculation and flame wars. How about we just wait until we see some benchmarks, then talk?

Do your talents consist of spreading false information and not giving proof to back up your claims?

I've been waiting for a while now for BD and definitely need the upgrade. I won $50 during the holiday wishlist prize giveaway and I'm antsy to put that and the rest of my new rig fund to use, weather it be SB or BD I can't hardly wait for the first wave of benches when BD is released!
