Win 8 Retail = Q4 2012.

And don't think for a second that Sandy Bridge won't have the same benefits once the switch is made.

Thanks Mac.


Even with a price drop, most of us will need a new psu to overclock the failzor.

5.0ghz failzor and 2 superclocked gtx 480?

?

Well after all the wait to see what bulldozer would actually do I guess the only question now is... when does Intel release 2011? :p

Wow now if it was 10 months ago I would have been excited, as it is MEH comparable to a 10 month old cpu.

Glad I didnt wait around for BD.

Sure it does alright in multithreaded but how much is multi threaded in use now? It is gaining dally but by the time the software get to where the BD can shine how old will this CPU be?

I will still be keeping my eyes out for the next revision though, might be some goodness there but IDK Intel's tick-tock is coming (heh with tick-tock Intel's always got something going) and they seam to be on a much better path/plan.

Yuppers, I have no idea what to think about this anymore.
We need AMD to keep Intel Honest, or we won't have competitive pricing nor competitive designs.
Its not good when this happens, and I can only hope they get there act together soon or its going to be dark days ahead..
