    I love the apparently known values of 12-15% faster, accompanied by an 'estimated' 36% faster 3D gaming performance. Playing to a crowd, perchance?

    Still, looks nice, and about time they produced something faster. Maybe they're beginning to feel AMD snapping at their toes again?

    Seems quite coincidental that bulldozer is just about to poke its head and intel release performance suggestions of their chips. I think the tactics are quite clear here.

    True, but I would be gobsmacked if this chip is in competition with any Bulldozer CPU.
    All indications currently are that bulldozer will be competing with the mainstream Sandy Bridge CPU's
