Default Re: Official AMD FX Bulldozer review thread!

I don't. They wouldn't have anything to differentiate them from Intel if they didn't have ATI.

Time's have changed, we're very unlikely to see another Athlon 64. Expect more along the lines of the original Athlon vs P3 for the best AMD can do on the CPU side these days. Intel dropped the ball with the original P4 and dropped it again by betting on Prescott to raise frequencies. This coupled with the fact that they weren't in the compiler game back then means AMD will probably never have a CPU like the t-bird or Athlon64/x2 again. Luckily they have much better GPU's than intel, that's the only card they have left to play.
