Default Re: Official AMD FX Bulldozer review thread!

I am very disappointed that apparently the performance in
  • Single-core
  • not simd, not floating point
  • not recompiled every time you get a new CPU

has actually gone down. I mean WTF. I spend a lot of time in single-threaded non-media things, just starting from linking large C++ programs.

The only good thing I can see is that at least price/performance has been picked so that the price for the same performance if you do use all cores is still better. I still expect to have a dual socket system with registered RAM with Bulldozer as my next virtualization system. But ... meh.

My Unix benchmark results
