    Excellent. More stuff to consider before the release of Battlefield 3. I will be watching closely at benchmarks - if need-by, wait until benchmarks for Battlefield 3 come in before upgrading my PC, if necessary.

    I
    That at least makes 2, I want to see stack loads of bench marks pitting SB and Bulldoser against each other with "same" hardware specs before parting with my hard earned cash, I do want to go back to AMD but right now Intel can't be touched.

    Just looked on the AMD site, they have removed all reference to the Bulldozer. If the chip is to be released in a couple of weeks you would expect them to be trumpeting the fact. I won't be holding by breath, but will be pleasantly suprised if they deliver as scheduled.

    Gah!
    Just ship them already! My new Sabretooth 990FX arrives today, and I'm itching for an 8150 to stuff deep into that socket. Hm, must order some new 1866Mhz RAM as well...

    Is it just me, or has bit-tech been notably quiet on the hardware front recently? Quietly testing review samples of Bulldozer is what I hope they're doing (rather than devoting themselves to reviewing xbox games :s).

    Or, better yet, I can sacrifice myself to testing Bulldozer in case they need free time for games. :D

    Urgh!
    I find myself sticking to the "hardware" page hitting F5 ever so often just waiting for the inevitable message that "Bulldozer has shipped" or "Bulldozer now on newegg".

    Doesn't sound like Bit-tech will be reviewing them any time soon. :(

    FFS!
    My WC setup is not easily disassembled, and I had hoped Bulldozer would soon be available, but still; guess I'll have to run the Sabretooth with my X4 955 for the time being then.
