Windows 7: Bulldozer is out and it sucks

[QUOTE=pparks1;1621127]Still on back order I see, thats very frustrating, AMD must still be having problems with their foundry...

I been waiting for mine for 6 days now ..they are telling me I will get it within 30 days ...
Its faster than my current 1090T and its slightly faster than than an 1100T... thats all I really care about..

I am having problems with my current 1090T because it cant multi-task very well with 3Ds Max, Zbrush 4, Photoshop CS5... running together... my system gets bogged down running all those at once even with 16gigs of ram..

I HOPE that this Bulldozer will be able to handle it better...

You are honestly going to spend $280 for a new CPU that's a bit faster than your 1090T and that's worth it to you?

I cannot see any good reason why a 1090T would struggle with multitasking that load. And if whatever you are doing within those apps really is crushing a 1090T, I'd be surprised to see your BD chip make a huge dent into that performance. I'd be more inclined to see if your disk subsystem is the reason for the performance hit.

Please be sure to let us know when it comes in. If you can, try to time the peformance of some repeatable tasks...so we can see quantitative results to compare before and after. A gut feel, or "it feels much snappier" really is hard to quantify.

This will be my spec...unless anything changes..

RAM: 16GB CORSAIR Vengeance DDR3 1866mhz (9-10-9-27-1T timings)

Graphics: CrossfireX 16x/8x HIS IceQ X Turbo HD6950's(both are stock OCed at 840/1280mhz) , 2 gig GDDR5 cards 11.10v2 drivers

Drives:
64GB PLEXTOR PX-64M2S SSD (SATA3) <--OS drive
128GB PLEXTOR PX-128M2S SSD (SATA3)<--OS drive
1TB SAMSUNG HD103UJ (SATA2 on a SATA3 controller)
120GB OCZ_RevoDrive x2 RAID SSD (PCI-E 4x)
Samsung CD/DVD/Blu-Ray ROM/Burner (SATA on a SATA3 controller)

Sound: Onboard Realtek ALC889 7.1 channel connected to 70 watt Philips 2.1 speaker system

Power Supply:
Kingwin 1000watt modular

Case: Cooler Master 932 blue

OS: Windows 7 64bit Ultimate SP1 dual boot with Windows 8 64bit Preview

Screens:
17" LCD left , 24" LCD Middle, 17" LCD right (24" screen just in case a game don't like eyefinity, I can change it to 1920x1080)

CPU cooling: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO with one 120mm and one 90mm fan, with Arctic Cooling MX-4 Thermal Compound

Im not worried about gaming.. we will see how the benchmarks go, I already heavily benchmarked my 1090T and saved the results for a comparison..

? If the BullDozer is So Bad anyone have say A Intel XEON or 2 to go head to head to Benchmark just as a curiosity Measure?

So far the first test (SiSoftware Sandra 2011 SP5)..shows Bulldozer is faster than a 1090T, but weak in .net performance:

EDIT: Second test vs other computers even an I7 2600k:

http://i303.photobucket.com/albums/n...rcomputers.jpg

3rd test: Test used: Passmark performance test 7 64bit ..CPU Mark

My FX-8150 scored a 9,555.0

Its higher than the FX-8150 on the chart here:
http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html

But it cant reach the I7-2600K with a score of 9,986

But still this FX-8150 is performing well so far

To make matters worse, the 8150 were due to be instock at most places in the UK yesterday and for some reason non of the major suppliers have had their stock in.

I believe one site is now stating it will be a few more weeks before they receive any stock.


Are they available in any other countries yet?

Not the best of starts at all really.

We have 4/6 and both Eight's in stock here in the states! But many have low inventories or are out of the 8150's.

I'll just sit back and enjoy the performance of the Core i7s in my desktop and laptop (both are quads).

Not a surprise though... I think it's largely Intel's HyperThreading tech that's doing AMD in. I've disabled HT once to see how much it would affect performance for me, and it had quite an impact.

Im loving the performance of my FX-8150 ... I don't believe the benchmarks from these "reviewers" ..since all my tests show that it outperforms all AMD CPU's and sits there just under the I7-2600K or just above it...

Most games run perfect on it ...except Deus EX: HR ...it crashes with a blue screen error and the computer resets...
