ShopBLT revealed prices of two AMD Bulldozer processors through their website where they are currently available for pre-order.
"While AMD’s Bulldozer has double the physical cores it doesn’t have Hyper Threading so each core can only process one thread at a time." Isnt this better because then each core isnt being asked to do twice as much as it usually would?
Having physical cores is better than Hyper-Threading. However these Bulldozers are not that good, I've seen the benchmarks plus the pricing says a lot. Even though this was removed whether its fake or real http://lenzfire.com/2011/09... (Personally I think AMD told SiSoftware to remove them) If these result are the real deal then Bulldozer is a small improvement of Thuban (Phenom II X6) Intel is really far ahead now, even Nehalem from 2008 is better than Bulldozer never-mind Westmere and Sandy Bridge. Plus remember Sandy Bridge E and Ivy Bridge will be out within a year at 22nm. If AMD has a Bulldozer for a series... Then Intel has 5 different tank series. BTW I have a AMD Phenom II X6 1055T why because AMD at the time was better on price
Depends.... Hyper threading is good for some software but pretty much all the result I seen for games show it has a negtive impact.
Anyone know a release date?
I might get one of these bad boys for my side rig. it can potentially become a beast with my old gpu. I cant wait to see the next gen of intel cpu's.
