If they had dropped them a further $20, I would think they would get more attention.

Ordered my 1090t today for $209. Obviously AMD had to drop prices because of SB, but with the SB chipset issue they had to do it immediately.

Quote from FUD:

Quote:
The module-based Bulldozer architecture should deliver impressive performance and more flexibility than AMD's current cores. According to AMD, the new processors should outpace its current six-core Thuban parts by about 50 percent. This would put the Bulldozer on a par with Intel's high-end Gulftowns.
From that quote, ********speculation alert********

If Bulldozer = Gulftown = Sandy bridge (or close) IVY will be more powerful that Bulldozer...

If it proves true, well AMD will have to compete on price and features again...

ivy bridge,theoretically, is supposed to be faster than sb, so bd,at least in single threaded applications,

from what i underrrstand, will be slower.

MemoryExpress and NCIX both have it at that price this week. Upgraded from the C2 revision (140 W) of the X4 965.
