  1. The folks over at AMD have links and some accompanying information regarding the patching of Win7 scheduling to take better advantage of BD's architecture

    Better luck this time round Bulldozer-er's

    Have you seen any solid testing yet DBZ? During the first go around I saw preliminary estimates of a ~2-10% boost, depending on the test.

    Only anecdotal so far re forums...most of the posters seem to getting excited about their WEI increasing by 0.1 (Wow!!!)
    Don't own an FX, nor built one (and probably unlikely to now that AMD have confirmed the FM2socket/quad channel memory for Piledriver), so until some reliable info surfaces we're probably left with the inevitable fanboy posting wars interspersed with the occasional benchmarks (Cinebench elevated to 7.23 from 7.15 in this case)

    The interest was largely academic for me. I only posted the info because I hadn't seen it put up already...if one person can get something useful out of it, we're ahead of the curve.
