Well it seems like were getting pretty close to this damn chip coming out finally :eek: ......i just wanted to get a feel for which version people want to buy...

i myself am pretty sure that ill opt for the 4170 quad core...... as i dont really see myself needing 8 cores.......i only game and use for multimedia purposes and the 4200mhz stock............thats nice.......the only part that concerns me is the turbo is only 4300mhz......


anyway.....im only interested in hearing from those who are actually considering this purchase........im not looking to start a flame war........just which one you want and why........

thanx

I do want to get a new cpu, just not sure if I want BD or I7 2600k. If I was to get BD, it would probably be the 8150. According to a post from the Tankguys, their price was going to be $260.

Like everyone else, need to see benchmarks first. If the results have it being pretty much neck & neck with the I7, then I'll probably get BD. Hopefully they will add some more overclock room, since I can't get past 3700 with the 1090T

unless your doing something thats actually going to use 8 cores efficiently, the 8 core cpu idea is pretty useless for 90% of situations. I would go for the high clocked quad core, maybe the 6 core depending on prices. I would rather have 4 brutally fast cores then 8 pissweak cores, hopefully the per-core performance of these chips is good.

So he's a fanboy because he wants to buy a proven processor with rave reviews and a mature platform, a chip that has received multiple editor's choice awards and in all honesty probably represents the best value of its generation. Right, he's a fanboy, not you and others who recommended as early as THIS JANUARY that people wait for bulldozer, a chip we know next to nothing about (including its release date, which for all you know could be next year, or hell, even the year after that).
I was stating i am the intel boy.
I mean the i5 2500k is amazing!Its because of this cpu i become an intel fanboy.

I do doubt Amd but hope they succeed.

Yeah! I'm the same here also. Although I hope that there are some good reviews about the Bulldozer processors,because I ain't going to buy any that will run out of diesel early. :lol:

Hi CPU666d1 :hello: . I actually agree with you & don't want to get any bulldozers that will run out of diesel also. :lol:

heres a possible price leak
http://techreport.com/discussions.x/21620

heres the good part of the artice.
The e-tailer, Bottom Line Telecommunications Corporation, is listing three chips:

An FX-6100 model with six cores, a 3.3GHz clock speed, 14MB of cache, a 95W thermal envelope, and an asking price of $188.32.

An FX-8120 model with eight cores, a 3.1GHz speed, 16MB of cache, a 125W TDP, and a $221.73 asking price.

And an FX-8150 model, which looks similar to the FX-8120 except for its 3.6GHz clock speed and $266.28 price tag.

the six core looks saucy if it gives performance that rival the snb i5's and if intel decides to price the 2500k at the same price then its a really close call man...

wow the six core is only $155, which is about £99 thats blooming amazing as here in the UK, i3 2100 is £86 so bulldozer would give intel hefty competition man and ill certainly be getting one if this is the case. WOW, a unlocked six core for the price of i3 dude

Oh PUH-LEASE! As an AMD lover you've never tasted 4.3 Gs.
ahh i should rephrase that........im concerned that the turbo is only 100mhz above stock!!!




actually im clocked above 4300mhz right now!!!

and furthermore it booted @ 4515mhz on air......but crashed when i tried to cpuz it :sweat:

The pricing looks great. I want to see benchmarks on it though, and not just on pure performance, but also on power use. For pure performance, my 970BE @3.8GHz handles all my apps and games just fine, even if SB does put it to shame in benchmarks. I bought my Asus Sabertooth anticipating a Bulldozer upgrade, but how quickly I do so is uncertain. The justification may be that I'd upgrade my wife's 720BE with the 970BE, which would definitely be a jump for her.
