Even AMD Didn't Know How Many Transistors Bulldozer Had
 
Apparently in a stunning revelation of sillyness, AMD PR actually didn't know how many transistors Bulldozer had, and in fact, instead of the 2 billion transistors initially reported, it actually only has 1.2 billion.

Source: AnandTech - AMD Revises Bulldozer Transistor Count: 1.2B, not 2B

To be totally honest, it does make more sense given the performance, but man, did AMD PR ever screw up something bad.

Edit: Huh, just noticed I posted this in the press release section. Move it if it's not supposed to be here.

I've just posted this link couple of days ago on the Bulldozer's review comment thread... and yes... didn't expected that, AMD.

AMD needs a NATO intervention for crimes against Silicone Valley.

Not to be mean and all but when AMD Restructured did they sack their entire PR team? I think they better.

I thought I remember hearing most of the marketing staff, or at least one part of the company was laid off. So I wouldn't be surprised if they did.
