Default Re: Official Bulldozer review thread

Ohhhh dear what a very sad day for AMD! i7 2600K destroyed FX 8150 in all games benchmarks and i7 2600K are very energy efficiency when overclocked to 5GHz but FX 8150 are on fire when overclocked to 4.8GHz roughly doubled the power consumption of 5GHz i7 2600K. Bulldozer are crap at games performance, I would rather overclocked my Phenom II 940 to 3.5GHz to get closer to Bulldozer games performance.

It nice to know you AMD, I had decided that Socket AM2+ motherboard and Phenom II 940 will be my final AMD upgrade and will be switch to Intel in early 2012 when Ivy Bridge CPUs will be launch with 20% increase performance and 20% reduce power consumption over Sandy Bridge when Ivy Bridge used 3D tri-gate traninstors, not to mentioned 22nm process too.

I now realised Intel are now much better than AMD because of Intel's clever tick-tock strategy, AMD probably will stuck with 28nm through 2014 while Intel will move to 14nm and then 10nm in 2016. I had enough with AMD took forever to developed, shrinked and delayed chips, Bulldozer is a appalled joke!
