It’s known by many names: Zambezi, Bulldozer, and FX to name a few. AMD calls it the future of computing.
It’s clear, however, that what they might be saying instead is “Welcome to the future of gaming.”
This site needs to check their data again. I've read three other reviews and they all said the same; very underwhelming! Especially when it came to gaming, this would lag behind the i7 2600K greatly! Even when it came to media encoding and etc, the 8 cores couldn't come close to the i7 2600K. Again, check your data. Something is wrong here.
Well for once I'm lost for words only for laughing then crying then laughing then I noticed I'm sat in a puddle. There went my idea for my next build and for the first time for as long as I can remember I'm about to ditch AMD CPU, sad feeling but I've got to get more for my money this time. I also think AMD's market share of 33% is going to take a real hammering over the next year or so, at least they will still have their Radeon division unless the mess up the HD 7000 series.
