    It would be nice to know exactly what month the AM3+ motherboards will be released.

    However,JF-AMD is connected more with the server side of things AFAIK.

    Nice to get some clarification.

    As long as AMD have no TLB errors badly handled like last time or sata problems the chip should sell .

    That was a cheap shot.

    That issue happened 4 years ago. Since that time we released Shanghai, Istanbul and Magny Cours, all ahead of schedule and all above promised frequency. As a matter of fact, Istanbul launched on first run silicon (a rarity in this business), bringing it in 5 months early.

    In light of some of the other issues out in the market today, that was uncalled for, wouldn't you agree?

    I think he was referring to those other issues in his post - it wasn't a go at just AMD

    Hardly an untruth, and if like myself fed up being a treated like a beta tester rather than a end user by companies that pump out erroneous hw.

    It's not just hardware either, I'm way beyond fed up with games publishers who release complete crap knowing they can just release a patch when they feel like a few months down the line when they already have your money - what about the people without broadband? It shouldn't be a requirement, games should work out of the box like they used to back in the PS1/2 days!
    Yes, stuff like that does badly annoy me and sours my opinion of companies but I think AMD learned their lesson with the TLB bug, they probably do a lot more testing now and they'd be stupid to let the same thing happen twice, especially with them playing the big catch-up game with Intel now, they can't afford any mistakes!

    Re: Bulldozer 8 module CPU 50% faster than Core i7 950!

    There is a picture of a 4 module Valencia chip in this article:

    http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/02...er_core_isscc/

    Since each module is supposed to be 30.9MM2 it looks like an 8 module Bulldozer CPU will be smaller than a Phenom II X6.

    Re: Bulldozer 8 module CPU 50% faster than Core i7 950!

    Too many problems with rev 1 hardware over the years to have much trust. I do confess to having more confidence in AMD and their CPU manufacture than I do in the board partners getting a stable motherboard with no issues. Maturity only comes in time through end user feedback so early adopters are beta tester whether you admit it or not.

    Cheap pre-orders on bulldozer CPU and motherboard ie a financial incentive = OK definitely maybe buy now.

    Day 1 release with typical price gouging ie price premium and zero HW maturity = NO thanks will wait for prices to come down and hardware/software repairs to roll out.

    The motherboards as I understand should be out before the cpus no? Presumably by the time the cpus are out the motherboards won't be revision one anymore anyway?

    Here are the first pictures of the box art:

    Looks like the 4 module processors have an unlocked multiplier.
