Yeah....no.

Any chips in the channel right now are likely B0 or B1 revision and working at very low clock speeds. They aren't meant for sale but rather quality assurance at motherboard manufacturers.

This is basically an Asian site that wants additional traffic and nothing else.

My System Specs

Arrow Bulldozer clocking high

Computex 2011: MSI's X79 and Llano Motherboards

"...

Those of you waiting for Bulldozer performance results from Computex, I'm afraid we're not going to see anything representative of final hardware. I did hear that the upcoming B2 stepping would restore performance to Bulldozer's original targets, however it's unclear how those compare to Sandy Bridge. The other thing I did hear at the show floor regarding Bulldozer was about its clock speed. Current B1 stepping parts are easily hitting 3.8GHz which is what the high end SKU may actually ship at (with turbo support up to 4.2GHz). I'm waiting for more confirmation but it sounds like Bulldozer will at least clock very high."

^ That may or may not be true but some say that AT is not famous for spreading FUD so its plausible at this moment. It could also be a cover up to the fact that GloFlo might not be able to produce Llano and Bulldozer at the same time due to capacity constraint.

Indeed, and by all means; if GloFo cannot deal with Llano and BD then they need to do what is necessary to be profitable and competative. The thing is if they would not be able to meet volume then you would at least see a BD paper launch with some media samples - my 2 cents, anyway.
