So is Steamroller coming out this year or not? I will be doing a new build in October and if Steamroller comes out around that time and has Nehalem level single threaded performance I will get it. I don't like chipsets with intergrated video wasting space on the I/O connectors so its that leaves AMD's FX or Intel's x79.

I can't answer you, but I feel like AMD sort of missed the big opportunity this year, what with really Intel's Haswell taking the whole show (Computex). After the console deals, I feel like AMD should have taken some of the spotlight this computex too to show that they're a real contender.

Not too sure on that. Speculation suggestions Q4 2013 or early 2014, with the latter being the most likely. On top of that, "leaked roadmaps" show no sign of Steamroller for FX in 2013.

maybe they are actually working to make strong improvements or changes to the architecture for once. Bulldozer is their first all new architecture in a long long time perhaps there will be some nice improvements and upgrades for AM3+ users.

The long wait time for the release gives me a feeling that it will be extra good. I sure hope that you are right. If so, AMD's got a very good future ahead.

So you guys are saying the Steamroller would be.... a "Tick" in Intel speak?

Next gen console ports to PC are all multi core (8 core optimized) and developed for AMD cpus, using Radeon, obviously PC's with AMD 8-core cpu's will have an advantage, have no idea how well Nvidia GPU's will run, probably just fine, but it's the FX-8350 cpu that will benefit the most, and Steamroller whenever the hell that's released.<br><br>
I hate this waiting game, and having a big wad of PC upgrade cash tucked away and doing nothing.<br><br><img alt="mad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/mad.gif"><br><br>

Well, Kaveri is launching sometime Q4 2013, and that APU has Steamroller cores. But no word on a CPU with Steamroller that fits AM3+ in 2013. Sometime 2014, if ever.

Steamroller lost steam and got rolled by Intel <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Only time will tell, though the later Steamroller comes out, the more people will start looking at Ivy Bridge-E Q4 2013 and then Haswell-E Q1 2015 which are going to be huge since they're going to be using solder TIM. EDIT: And Haswell-E is going to be an intel 8 core hasewll chip.

True, and you'll be able to own one for about $1,200 when it comes out.

8 core are you kidding me? In Intel's eyes thats worth at least $1,500 <img alt="rolleyes.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif"><br><br>

Steamroller hasn't been scheduled for a 2013 release for a long time from what I have seen. I thought it had been bumped to 1st half of 2014.

If I was a betting man, Id say itll be out around spring of 2014. I would be shocked if it came out this year. Nothing that Ive seen around the net and from AMD and such, hints toward that.

That is utter nonsense. I mean no insult, but use some common sense. IVY Bridge -E customers are spending a whole lot more than what AMD will be charging for Steamroller FX cpus. It is an entirely different price class. Those users are unlikely to use Steamroller even if it was released tomorrow.

This since the E is more like the Interlagos price bracket.<br>
and AMD clearly said they positioned it against an i5 (even though it beats the i7 hands down in well multithreaded apps)

I sure hope so it would be really nice to know there would be an upgrade available that is better than my 100T in every way. (including rendering and single threaded)

Kaveri is slated to launch later this year, so I wouldn't expect the desktop counterparts until at least Q1-Q2 2014.<br><div class="quote-container" data-huddler-embed="/t/1404574/steamroller#post_20285481" data-huddler-embed-placeholder="false"><span>Quote:</span>

AMD actually stated that Steamroller is on track as expected, thus your Intel joke is moot. And sure you can own a Ivy Bridge-E for about $1500, which I could build two gaming rigs for that price that will max any game.

All true besides they positioned it against the i5 and it wins there in well multi threaded apps it actually wins from the i7 3770k
