But why? it's not even out yet, you don't know how it will perform, you don't know the exact price.

No I haven't placed an order yet, I'm not an early adopter.....I'm more of a interested in technologies and truly want AMD to humble Intel kind of guy. I believe competition sharpens the breed and I just can't wait for this to hit and see how it overclocks and performs. Does Intel have fine products......of course, but I still love cheering for the little guy ! We all benefit from this so really we all should be hoping that AMD takes it to Intel in the consumer CPU market just as it has with it's GPU's............oh I've gone and said it now ! lol

Well said, my friend. I think someone who dosen't want a Bulldozer should be pulling for AMD. Competition is good for all of us.

What's the clock on the cores? Intel already has a 10-core / 20-thread processor but they run at something like 2.2Ghz or there abouts. As I recall, it's like 6GT/s though. And, it will take software to make use of all those cores. I'm sure the delays have been to let the OEMs catch up.

I agree completely that competition is great. It worked well back in the day when the race was on to 1ghz. Then, AMD stuck it to Intel big time with the Athlon 64 X2 CPU's. During this time, the aging Pentium 4 was really loosing ground. Then, Intel came back big with the Core 2 Duo, Core 2 Quad, Core i3/i5/i7 and now Sandy Bridge. And because of the competition, the prices of Intel since the release of the core 2 duo has been greatly reduced. In fact, Intel dropped prices so much that I no longer feel and haven't really felt AMD was best bang for the buck in quite a number of years. They have been a great "value" CPU...and I'm hoping that with Bulldozer they come back into the "top performing' realm once again. But I'm not going to buy into the hype until I actually see it.

I'd like to have an Intel processor with an AMD on-board GPU but that's not likely to happen. Intel has made leaps in the on-chip GPU and I suspect them to continue. When speaking from a business owner standpoint, you don't risk down time with a budget processor--You buy the best and amortize it. Intel's 80% market share speaks for itself. And Intel doesn't risk it's market by hiding faults. It acts swiftly on problems. AMD lost a good chance to cash-in on the Sandy Bridge SATAII problem but lacked the product management to take advantage of an opportunity. Instead, AMD is still floundering with it's on-chip GPU offering trying to catch up to Intel. AMD will always try harder, they have to. They're walking in a very large shadow.

Forgot to mention: Look for AMD to slide further behind in the desktop arena. They're concentrating on the notebook market. And Nvidia will be "sliding" into low-power processors in tablets and smart phones. The age of the on-die GPU is here and the others are scrambling to find other markets because they can't keep up with Intel.

carwiz,
You may be correct but I hope you are wrong for if Intel commands all of any market your options and price points fly right out the window. People have counted the little guy out before and have to date been very wrong.....I hope for all of our sake this continues.
