quote: Bulldozer has 8 cores...
quote: It would be better for their marketing if they just called it a quad-core. At least that's closer to the truth and is more in line with the real-world performance.
quote: AMD CPU's haven't been relevant in a REALLY long time
quote: AMD hasn't been relevant at the top-end of the consumer market in a long time.
quote: Top-end? Convince me why I should pay more for a Bulldozer when a cheaper i5 or i7 is STILL better in every way.
quote: Hell, the FX-4100 costs the same as the i3-2100. Maybe that'll be a win for AMD, we don't have any benchmarks yet.
quote: Anand seems hopeful that Piledriver would help things, but by then IB will be out with whatever performance enhancements it will bring.
quote: The drive for efficiency and greater instructions per clock (IPC) is the impetus for Bulldozer. Long gone are the days of simply increasing clock speed for easy performance gains.
quote: you're contradicting yourself here.
