Default 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.

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.
