But when our Thubans are doing just as good for the most part or a few points lower Clock for clock whats the point right? I'm with you on teh support side though. I remember my thunderbird very well.
Its a shame really, hopefully sometime in the future they will have good direction again as well as performance.

Well thats just it if the piledriver revisions can cull the wattage leaks, improve the preformance + the rumored Win 7 kernal mod to support them better ... we may see better preforming FX chips that peaple wont feel so uninterested in buying. And more of the Bi-Core's wouldn't hurt either

If they're planning on discontinuing the Thubans, they should definately drastically lower the price of the BD's. I would seriously reconsider an 8150 if it was the same price as an 1100T is now.

Yup. I would be willing to pay for the same as I paid for on my 1090T if they brought the 8150's to that level.

Doubtful though,
