  1. AMD is readying two new Bulldozer chipsets for 2012, according to a slide leaked by Turkish site Donanim Haber. The 1090FX and 1070 will arrive as part of the 10-series…

    wow, they really have a slide that is matching their latest and greatest chipset and comparing it to x58 which is over 3 years old and is about to be replaced with x79? Intel really is years ahead...

    I'd say a couple of generations behind Intel and SB tbh. They have an almost unimaginable amount of catching up to do. So much so, that I doubt they'll even try and compete with the top end Intel processors, and concentrate more on bang per buck, so to speak.

    The NB looks like a rehash of the current 9 series and the CPU is still trash. I don't see this helping AMD much, even with backwards compatibility. Good luck Mr. Read, you're gonna need it.

    A little interesting that X79 doesn't feature in AMD's forecast for 2012......maybe they are under the impression that the whole Sandy Bridge-E product line is a smoke and mirrors campaign

    I have a strange feeling that AMD are simply marking time at this stage. AMD are supposed to issuing a press release tomorrow re: "Project WIN". The general consensus seems to be that AMD are heading towards being near-exclusively a manufacturer of portable/mobile/handheld devices- with some scuttlebutt pointing towards AMD securing an ARM licence...all rather odd since they gave away their wireless IP and ultraportable business to Qualcomm ($65 million) and Broadcom.

    If this is indeed the case -and it is looking likely- then I'd think that AMD's desktop/server business would likely implode before before getting anywhere close to Intel's level. I would sincerely doubt that AMD could keep R&D going for both the desktop/enterprise market whilst simultaneously going to war with all the other ARM-licencees and Intel in the ultra-low-voltage sector...especially since AMD is starting from a disadvantageous position -basically a good couple of years behind the rest of the pack...and with no wireless IP as far as I'm aware.

    I hope you're not suffering too much being stuck with a Bulldozer build and all.

    :) Not suffering to much I have my 1055T but I was hoping that the new Bulldozers would have benchmarked better. I was hoping to upgrade but now I will just stick with what I have and wait for the 1100T to fall in price and maybe pick one up.

    Thing I like about AMD is that the parts are cheaper to replace if you kill them overclocking. Haven't done it too many times....enough for it to be a buying point though.

    One problem with that selling point. With Intel you don't need to overclock the CPU to get performance far beyond what AMD ones provide. So yes it's cheaper to replace an AMD chip if you kill it while overclocking, but if you buy an Intel chip you won't even need to overclock to get the performance that the AMD chip you didn't buy would have given you.

    Walmart use the same marketing strategy
    IT"S YOU DAMMIT! You're the one costing AMD profitability. Pick it up fella'. I (and AMD) want to hear how you demolish board after CPU, after board...
    Get creative, see if Red Bull is a viable alternative for oil immersion, dump those board heatsinks- surely a sliced banana and packing tape could do the same job....
  13. The worst thing is when you got an Asus P8Z68 Deluxe and the new one comes equipped with PCIe 3.0. =(

    Before AMD can outperform their competition they first need to grasp their competition it's "IvYbridge" not "IvVbridge"
  15. I suspect amd will keep selling server based cpu 's until THE their APU line converges with high end cpu's
    probably when the APU is designed at the 22nm level circa 2013.
    That makes buying into the FM2 socket a wise choice and why am waiting for trinity.

    Trinity? Am I to assume that AMD believes its only salvation is by act of God?
  17. er, I thought the MSI 990FX-GD80 supported 2x16 CF
  18. I have a strange feeling about the new chipsets that AMD will have noticed the demand of PCI-E 3.0 by now and probably working their way up to compete with Intel's new chipsets. + I just bought a GA-990FXA-UD5 yesterday. But i have it coupled with 1100T so would last me another year or a half before i need to upgrade.
  19. MSI 990FXA-GD80 does support 2X16 CF, doesnt it.. :O
