    Clock 4 Clock versus Bulldozer is what I mean, not with the 1100T.

    Eventually the future generations of the Bulldozer Design should easily outpace the fastest Phenom II's.

    Problem is... an eventual future is to late. They should do that NOW but they aren't.

    Sad to say since I'm a real AMD supporter but if nothing happens right now they're in deep trouble.

    I had a bit of a chuckle thinking about how AMD need a 4GHz octo-core to compete with a 3.4GHz quad from Intel.
    Sad times.

    i5-3570K = 77w TDP
    FX-8350 = 125w TDP
    ==================
    Ouch.

    it's more a case of "What am I mainly going to be using this CPU for?", instead of "What's the best Intel chip for this price?".
    Depending on the workload the FX-8350 makes a lot of sense over an i7-3820
    (with the i7-3770K I feel is better than the i7-3820)

    just no longer an AMD guy, but I have no problems building one for someone and then trying it out..

    The FX-8350 does have advantages over the 3770K. It's cheaper, and it has a better platform.

    Vs. the 3820, well the 3820 is a bit of a weird product. It's for people who need the connectivity of X79 (pci-e lanes and 8 DIMM slots) but who do not need a 6-core CPU or ECC memory. Seeing as no current AMD platform fills these criteria other than G34, which is certainly not for people who do not need many CPU cores, the closest rival is probably a second-hand X58 rig. Or possibly a socket 771 rig with two cheap, dual core Xeons.

    AMD's Steamroller should be the game changer and should have the ability to compete very well. What Bulldozer was suppose to be.

    AMD has already planned to accelerate Steamroller Release. We should expect it sometime in 2013. A faster turn around than Bulldozer to Piledriver. Remember AMD does have the best all time Processor Arcitect. :D

    It doesn't matter if they have the best of everything. If they can't compete with Intel in real performance they will lose a lot of ground.

    I'm not as confident as you are. I hope they will deliver but they promised they would with Bulldozer and didn't.. they promised they would with Piledriver and didn't. So sorry, but they have a lot to live up to next time and if they fail again I'm afraid they won't recover.

    AMD had what it took to ensure Bulldozer was fast and successful. Unfortunately AMD's board cut R&D and made ridiculous hardware decisions. And today we have Bulldozer that was never suppose to be what it is today.

    Steamroller should be a huge performance improvement. This is what Bulldozer was suppose to be.

    And ex AMD employee revealed the debacle and mismanagement of Bulldozers execution. Why do you think the original Bulldozer slides were showing great improvements over the competition. Was it?

    I actually know the former VP of Marketing / Server Department, he went by the name of JF-AMD, John Fruehe.
    we're friends on OCN and Facebook actually.
    he just went back to work for NextI/O..

    there's more to it then that @ Super XP..

    little different when your trying to stop AMD fanbois from Over hyping a CPU...
    and your honest and use nothing but the Truth.

    and there trying make un-knowing new members buy into them when they can build Intel...
    cause honestly With the price difference in mobo you can build a 3770k system for the same price as one of those expensive AM3+ boards..
    which makes there no need for that CPU at that price.

    PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

    CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($299.99 @ Amazon)
    Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($104.99 @ Newegg)
    Total: $404.98
    (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

    Sure, though in fairness I don't think that a Crosshair V Formula is the equivalent of an Extreme 4.

    More like this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ljgf

    That's Extreme4 vs. Extreme4, and the 3770K ends up $70 more expensive. Which it's easily worth, obviously.
