Default Re: Official AMD FX Bulldozer review thread!

That doesn't help us though. As of now, the CPU is slow compared to the competition in applications today, and for that reason, AMD really has no excuse.

I think if this CPU had come out about 3 or 4 years down the road on a smaller node and higher frequency, we would have seen it be competitive. As of now, Bulldozer has a serious identity crisis on its hands.
have you seen this?

clock for clock, core for core, the new design is horrible
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME
