Anyone know when they're coming out? I heard it was sometime this year.
Scuttlebutt says it will be demo'ed at CEBIT (1-5 March). John Fruehe- the marketing face of AMD says unequivocably that the desktop Bulldozer CPU's will launch in Q2 (Apl-June), so unless it's a "paper launch", then Launch = Retail availability.
Thanks loads Zero, much appreciated.
They wouldn't dare Chef! :wave:
Red, I have something for you to look at, it's a driver hack to allow SLI on all platforms. You and the other people on here have probably seen/heard of it, I gave it a try but the way my motherboard was made I can't do it.
I have not used it myself, but I have talked with and read that it works swimmingly and is problem free for the most part. Are you thinking of implementing it yourself? If so, maybe Chef can shed some practical light on its application.
Nah, I've already given it a go and had no luck and narrowed it down to the way my motherboard was produced. =P
...well then, you've no choice...Go Radeon! :wave:
seriously, Chef may be ale to help you make that adjustment. From what I understand, It works on "all" MB's....of course I have been wrong once or twice before
Well, wanna trade me then? I got 2 GTX 260s right next to me.
What? and break up a set?
I will ask DBZ if he has any ideas to get your 2nd 260 rolling. You will probably need it for Crysis 2 on enthusiast!
Nah, I'm not tooo worried about it Red, I'll be doing a Bulldozer rebuild when ti comes out with a pair of 570s if I can scrape up enough cash.
But, then again, it'd be nice to see that GTX out of the packaging and in the computer. >
Yea, I'll definatly need it for that.
You're already set on a Bulldozer build ey? I hope you are right. There seems to be a different tone from AMD with the pending BD release. They are not doing their usual 'lowering of expectations'.
The hack has problems with all Biostar boards as far I as know -even the TPower i45 - and the hack generally works with all P45 chipset boards. It also seems less than successful with some OEM branded (Intel/Pegatron etc. AMD Crossfire capable boards) from my understanding.
Yea, I know.
I'm really hoping they pull something outta their ***, lol.
Their production methods stink! One consolation, Bulldozer should be smaller die than the Phenom II X6
and I heard that high K is slicker than SOI...so...that should help
