Default Microsoft released Bulldozer CPU hotfix for Windows 7

2 Months after the launch of Faildozer CPU, Microsoft finally released CPU hotfix for Windows 7 with updated CPU scheduler to improve CPU performance.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2592546/

It will be interesting to find out how the hotfix performed in benchmarks compared to unpatched hotfix if anyone already got FX 8150 to test.

Default Re: Microsoft released Bulldozer CPU hotfix for Windows 7

I read about this on TechPowerup, and some are seeing upto 10% improvement. Only in games, the benchmarks hardly see anything.
