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.
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.

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