    It is hard to say. The recently leaked Llano samples seem to be running at half the speed the speed that they were rated at.

    This article about the recently Bulldozer benchmarks makes sense:

    It seems that the retail Llano A8-3850 has been tested(hard to say as there is no CPU-Z screenshot):

    http://crazyworldofchips.blogspot.co...pu-tested.html

    The IGP seems similar in performance to an HD5550 or HD5570.

    It seems there was a bug with Cool'n'Quiet which meant the CPU ran at half its rated speed. With it is switched off the CPU benchmark scores are much higher:

    http://translate.google.com/translat...66878%26pg%3D5

    Supposedly,the CPU was overclocked to 5.4GHZ although the scores do look a tad low for such a large overclock. It could be quite possible that there is some throttling happening.

    It seems the CPU was only overclocked using one core! No wonder the scores look a tad low!

    It seems some weirdness is happening with the overclocking results. Not only are they for a single core but according to some forums the actual clockspeed is nearer to 3GHZ.

    Re: AMD - Bulldozer Chitchat

    SuperPI is an awful benchmark anyway, I wouldn't pay it any attention since it doesn't seem to scale well at all, even with the same chips at different clocks. Y-Cruncher is a far, far better pi benchmark which is also multi-thread capable, it's a pity more reviewers haven't tried it.

    "You are looking at a bowlful of batter"

    Just a pleasing metaphor, or a comment on the current state of Bulldozer?

    I jest, of course - just couldn't resist that one. It *is* a nice metaphor though - must remember that one next time my boss makes some snarky remark about the website I'm working on

    It seems AMD is packing transistors more densely than the current Intel CPUs:
