My System Specs

Default

Perusing my local Best Buy flyer, I can only pick out zero PC's equipped with a Sandy Bridge CPU. There's one with an i7-860, an i5-650, a Pentium E5800, and a couple Athlon's. Sandy Bridge is of little consequence to Joe Average; if AMD is pushing Bulldozer back to make way for its mainstream products like Llano, that's good because those are the products that will help keep AMD relevant. I could care less if Sandy Bridge is delayed until next year because it only applies to a small percentage of the market. For enthusiasts those who care about rendering Cinebench three seconds faster, this short-term reschedule may be bad, but in the long-term (AMD's overall survival), it may be a good thing.
