    So does that mean they need more cores to compete as their cores aren't as powerful?
    I hope not. That's what they're having to do now with their K8 derived cores.

    Just seems that with Intel's LGA2011 just around the corner, that its a case of too little too late for AMD. As much as I'd like to see AMD offer Intel competition in both performance and pricing, they seem to be perennially one step behind. Its such a shame as we could all benefit from a good head-to-head fight, but I get the impression that its not going to happen, no matter how much this "leak" tries to sex it up. :sigh:

    Well, you have to throw your hat into the ring one day. Noone gets every bet they make right, plop some money down now if your keen. Time will tell if you did good or not.

    Cluster Multi Threading. Share more parts, duplicate less, higher average utilisation.

    The more you read about Bulldozer the more you invariably find out about the current k10 design and how old and clunky it is on many levels. The world really has moved on a great deal from the K8 days. From what we've been told Bulldozer sweeps away all the antiquated grot of 'family 10h' and replaces it with something truly modern.
    Given how very different Bulldozer is compared to Thuban, Deneb, Barcelona and Clawhammer then there really is only one way to look at things and that is: ALL. BETS. ARE. OFF. Literally it could be great or it could be terrible, noone is any the wiser.

    Probably awful VIA chipset. No word on how you set them up on a software level. Did you even look in the bios at all? Did they have same ram type, speed and size? same hard disk?

    I would take how Bobcat performs (very well) as a good omen of their prowess at coming up with new core designs (90% IPC of K8 at a fraction of the die size).

    I'd very much like to see what has given you that impression. Bobcat in all it's forms looks veeeeery power efficient for a given level of performance.

    They've been tight-lipped about all their graphics products from the 4870 onwards, and their cpu products from the original Phenom onwards. I think it's just their policy not to say anything more than the bare minimum

    Read the article on realworldtech.com concerning Bulldozer. I googled every other term as I barely understood a thing but I got there in the end. Long story shortened: the only conclusion you can draw is that pretty much anything could happen with this thing, loopy fast or just 'meh'.
