Agreed, however it is this "aggresive" pricing that raised some flags. Some people suddenly assumed that BD must be a flop if it is 245 than 320 pesos, as initially posted. I would not put my testicles in a vise for this, but I am sure Zambezi will perform nicely, and it'll be a nice FAH alternative to the SB rigs...come official release day, we'll all be generals ("everyone is general after the battle is over").

i think the results are photoshoped, how do you get 4028MB of RAM on a mobo that does not have integrated graphics? In this case can only be 1024,2048,3072,4096 not 4028. Maybe a 2048, which means the slides are fake, whoever did this was not too good at math, an artist maybe but lousy at math. L2 cache size is also 8x2MB for FX : isn't that supposed to be only 2x4MB? Also the ram quantity for the SB is not what it should be 16GB of RAM translate into 16384 not 16367! I'd say we have a good artist that skipped math classes.

I think that leaked page of SiSoft Sandra test comparison of an FX8100 with i7 2600k is much more credible. Here SiSoft Leaks AMD FX-8100 "Zambezi" Scores: Worse Than Intel Core i7 - Bright Side Of News*

Lets not forget that BIOS are not finalized yet. So any benchmark should be took with a few grains of salt. Till the finished product is out the door, any bench marks out there are not accurate!!!

^^ true. At this point any AMD fanboy site or Intel Fanboy site could play with the result or post real result using a crap bios for each of those chip. I wont settle my choice until AT LEAST, HWC, Anand and Guru3D give a review of it.

I cant wait to see an actual review as well from HWC or Guru3D, should be quite interesting. Hopefully there is a clock by clock comparison.
Only have to wait like 9 more days until BD is released, at least I hope.

Well, the latest rumour is October 12th at 18:00 (EST?, MST?, that I don't know).

Really they would just surprise release it like that? Have they even officially said anything about Bulldozer in the last 2 months? I have such a low level of confidence that it will come out this month. like October 12th is the date they'll announce the date? How could it possibly come out with no notice.
