Well I'm glad I waited for these results, going to get myself the i5 2500k.

I think there are some bugs that need to be addressed before we can be sure about its performance.

Asus Crosshair V formula board may have hampered Bulldozer - Overclock.net
AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer finally tested - Page 13
And also the thread scheduling within modules vs between modules, as shown in Trotter's post.

I don't know if fixes like these could put it ahead of SB (we'll just have to wait and see), but having less performance than Phenom II just doesn't make sense.

I am kind of annoyed at how long it's taking to get things working though.

Holy ****, so... Basically, the first reviews are a whole load of ********? Kinda reminds me back in the day when one of the Nvidia chipsets CRIPPLED AMD graphics cards like NUTS. Find some the people in other forums saying that a CPU should work across all boards with similar performance, this has never been true for ANYTHING.

Interesting...well that's good news for everyone! Still got power usage off the charts compared to SB tho :/

Also, epic fail that they wouldn't test the test system they're sending to all the major review sites...srsly...

Someone at xtremesystems did some tests, disabling one core in each module vs disabling two modules (ie 4M/4C vs 2M/4C).
Basically, 4M/4C gets much better performance than 2M/4C

Microsoft's new thread scheduler should schedule threads on separate modules first, and use both cores in a module only when there's more than 4 active threads. That should produce performance more in line with what it should be.

This shouldn't require a brand new OS when a lot of people are still just switching to Win7, Win7 should be able to perform perfectly on most hardware for a lot longer than this. I hope they plan to "patch" win7 instead of making this only a win8 thing.

I'm pretty sure it will come as an update for Windows 7
