So with Bulldozer able to boost up to 4.1 Ghz, what would Intel have in mind with Ivy Bridge, what if Ivy Bridge ends up out performing Bulldozer, because of the smaller architecture?

I hope something is comming. I need to upgrade my oldest son's computer which means I get new toys and he inherits mine and his younger brother gets his, our tradition. The problem is amd's fastest processor is 42nd in this list: PassMark Intel vs AMD CPU Benchmarks - High End. I have always used an amd and nvidia combination, but how can do that now. Is amd dead and over. Should I just give up on it and go to intell and ati?

No way. AMD is more live than ever!
Keep in mind the real needs of your children. They really need an i7 and a nVidia
590? In all, AMD CPU "marries" best with ATI / AMD GPU.

Those benchmarks won't be valid in about 3 weeks, and no, AMD is very much alive. The AMD Zacate in the mobile space has already wrecked every single Sandy Bridge part.

As for desktop, we'll need to wait a few weeks. My money is on the enthusiast Bulldozer over Sandy Bridge.

This is the fun part! We'll have to wait and see. I have a feeling Bulldozer will overtake SB, but IB, impossible to say, I can't wait to find out tho.

Myself tho, honestly, I just cannot overlook AMD's prices. But who knows, perhaps Ivy Bridge will pull off an i5 type part that's fantastic.

The next few months are going to be a party for us tech heads

Just my opinion. Find a processor that will suit your needs and build with it. My philosophy is that no matter what you buy, in 6 monthe or less there will be something out better.

I think you only have about 3 more weeks to wait. Then you can have your shiney new 8 core toy.
