I'm hoping that it does give Intel a solid run for the money.....but I have a sneaking suspicion that Intel will have a new chip out around the same time that performs as well if not better. And like the last few years, I think the Intel will also be very close in overall price.

When one is looking for the fastest new cpu in the world a low price isn't going to happen.

I fully suspect those who bought AM3 mobos and have been waiting and waiting and waiting for these new killer AMD CPU's are going to end up disappointed to find that their shiny new AMD rigs can't outperform somebody else's rig from more than a year ago. If this happens, it will be just another disappointment from AMD after truckloads of hype.

It's all speculation and perspective !

Yeah, but AMD fanboys have been raving for years now about this new upcoming Bulldozer chip that was going to absolutely decimate anything from Intel. But the chip keeps getting delayed, and delayed and now it's a Q4 chip. Suffice it to say, if this chip is not absolutely great, but rather just good enough...I think many diehard AMD fans are going to rethink their position.

^ I'm not necessarily talking about you. That was just a collective term for all of the AMD fans I have discussed this with the past few years that always 2nd guess why I spec'd a machine with an Intel CPU...rather than waiting for the new Bulldozer chip or at least get an AMD mobo so that I could get the killer bulldozer when it came out.

Ah, then my apologies for that term does not sit well with lots of people. I value all opinions as long as they don't get personal......so I greatly appreciate the clarification !

^ Yeah dude, sorry if you took it personal. I'm not the type that will throw a personal attack around. I really, really, really want to see AMD come out with a killer chip. I've owned many AMD's int he past, but the last one was an Athlon 64 X2...because that was the last time they were on top. I just have this gut feeling saying that the "bulldozer" which was supposed to be that killer chip, simply isn't going to be.
