How do you know that? Only employees and perhaps NDA folks have this info now. Unless you're one or the other other, your "plunge to glory" might be a "fools rush in" situation.

Only one thing is certain- with your current costly quad setup you're more cpu limitd than you need to be until Bulldozer launches.

I wish I could have found the article I first thought of when I saw your post which had Phenom 2 vs Intel, I think on 3 way Sli.

Personally, I have nothing but admiration for AMD the CPU company, and have been a steady customer of theirs since 486 days with multiple purchases in each generation.
