hey bulldozer, get ready to get bulldozed again by the new(with 30w less tdp) pricy performance cpu!
i read somewhere that intel used the best yields for 2700k chip, may be this one will oc even higher....
can't wait for a 2700k vs 2600k vs 2500k vs bullwhatever performance comparison. :)

Come on now, it's not even a battle anymore, if AMD had been ontime with Bull dozer, in 2009, they'd be back on the map, but they wer e2 years late and this is what they get.

I have my i2600 running at 4.2ghz stable but could probably push it further. Intel more than likely just pushed the same chip and relabeled it.

:( I've been with AMD for years now....I even got a Crosshair V and a 1100T in preparation for an eventual upgrade to Bulldozer. I will wait for Bulldozer 2.0 ...if not...hey when Ivy Bridge comes out, 2500k will be cheap as hell.

why did they release it.. now i see no point of Intel releasing ivy bridge.. there is no competition for their current CPU lineup... they can just lay back and enjoy...

So extra $15 bucks for only 100Mhz more. How about dropping prices on the 2500k and 2600k instead. I almost forget Intel doesn't need to "compete".

That's why IB is pushed back to 2012.
 

ivy bridge got pushed back to make room for 2700k and sb-e release. afaik ivb will be released in late q1 2012 - around march-april.

100 Mhz extra, why bother? Isnt the whole "K" series thing about being unlocked? Just buy a 2600k, go into your bios and two minutes later you have a 2700k and some extra cash in your pocket. This is as bad as AMD's 955-980 series, redundant(sorry AMD, you know I love you). Marketing, pure and simple. Dont waste your money, even if they are binning these things, you really wont get much more for your money.

They've been working on IB for years, long before BD started to look like a failure. They're not going to just not release it if it's already done. Plus, I imagine Intel still remembers what happened the last time they got complacent. AMD's not in the same position as it was in the P4 days, but I don't think Intel wants a real challenge and will keep putting out new designs to assure their dominance.

Do they have to compete?

Intel didn't get complacent in the P4 days. They had a team of morons design it. It's not hard to figure out that if you design a less efficient processor and make it run at crazy high speeds you're going to have heat issues which will prevent said processor from competing with faster, more efficient CPU's.

before i fully judge the bulldozer i want to see windows 8 performance, with the amd cpu being written for it, like 7 is with intel, and revision 1 of bulldozer.
 

i want to see how bulldozer performs with windows 8.0 as well. the sad reality is - amd had time to work with microsoft on the scheduler thing and other performance issues yet it underperformed significantly.
otoh linux apps are multithreading optimized, so bd might show some improvements there and they have the opportunity to write optimized driver for that (though i did read at phoronix that the latest bd patch by amd got criticzed by linus torvalds).

who are they competing with? AMD? this i7 makes bulldozer look like an Intel celeron
